does anyone has experience with brake pads for volvo v70 t5 MK1 that will be good for DD, but occasional hard usage? I am looking for front pads to cope with ATE rotors.
Have my volvo for many years now and driving ATE rotors and pads front and back. Have never been really happy with this but for daily driving and occasional hard pulls on empty roads they have held up and I did not experience serious fading or not enough brake performance to any given situation. Till yesterday that is.
I never used the Volvo for AutoX purpose, but yesterday we have been building a new track and I volunteered to test it with a stock car. After couple of laps, all braking performance has been lost. No soft or squishy pedal, brake fluid changed 2 weeks ago. Pedal had the usual travel, just without braking the car. After just couple of minutes everything was fine again. My understatement is this behavior is due to pads that can´t deal with the excessive heat and most likely glazed.
Although as said, for the daily usage the ATE are "fine", it has been a terrible feeling to experience no brake performance and having no control over the vehicle. I do not want to experience this again and looking for different front pads that would be working under normal conditions, but could handle hard usage as well, if experienced.
Any suggestions what to go with? So far I have been proposed to go with:
EBC yellowstuff (not sure if available in US)
