    Photo below. Zero dust, from the replacement, Mopar OEM pads. My car, hasn’t been washed in a month too. I wonder who manufactures the Mopar ceramic pads. These aren’t performance track pads either. My Red stuff pads, were $$$$. About 70 bucks. EBC, makes blackstuff (OEM) green stuff, red stuff, and performance yellow stuff. Supposedly the red stuff was to be low dust.

    Well, seems like you found what you're looking for. $70 is big bucks? I'm shocked the mopar were less. Most pads from oems on new cars are very high. At least over $100 a set these days. I bought a set of reds amd used them. The initial impression, they were not what I expected at all. So I looked them up and saw they definatly weren't what I thought I bought. Ebc used to market jist black, green, red amd trackminx. Yellows popped up somewhere along AMD I started using them. But i always thought red was a more aggressive pad for some reason. Not a street oriented cermaic.

    I have been using EBC Reds - not very happy with them; they are dusty and don't like serious braking.
    Tarox BBK is in my immediate future, & it it wasn't, I would be installing Hawks.

    Reds do suck. But if you havemt tried yellows, dknt write off ebc. Yellow is a fantastic pad. I know people using blues on high performance cars that have an application and they swear by them. Pads are the one thing where you ask 10 people you're guaranteed to get 10 answers. But anyone running the good ebc pads loves them.

    ebc reds, I am not fond of them, but they do stop OK. Very very dusty too

    Havent tried yellows

    probably going to Hawk HPS 5.0 next. Had these on my previous car. Very dusty too but brake feel was awesome on my previous car

    for the track, i will probably use Project Mu...

    I caught my hawk hps5s on fire on one up and down trip on the dragon, albeit Im a national contender in autocross and drove 10/10ths but they were doneski!!! I had almost no brakes for 10 minutes even after giving the brakes 30 minutes to cool off. I might try going to a different rotor or EBC yellows but Im not sure if the yellows have more friction at higher temps than the HPS5s.

    Not a lot of options for stuff more temp friendly than the yellow with a stock abarth caliper. You might be looking at designer pads named after obscure french grand prix drivers from the 60s. Mr. National contender!
    Probably cheaper in the long run to change to an aftermarket caliper.

    I haven't had luck with rotors even with my meager skills in 20 minute sessions. More heat and more friction probably ismt gonna help. In starting ro think bigger is the only way to get more lofe.

    An interesting proposition, many euro suppliers make a bracket to bolt on the 159 brembos. Switching to an actual widely used performance caliper that us the basis of like every entry level nig brake kit is gonna open up pad option immensely.

    They'd look pretty at least... I'd take the alfa romeo script over some brembo any day.
