EBC HH Brake Pads

Some advice for those considering the EBC HH pads.
They are excellent pads and work great at Track Days.
They have ZERO braking effect the very first time you use them!
Do NOT install and do a Track Day without first breaking them in.
They are noisier than stock but that is a minor detail.

They are easy to fit.
But if you install both Front and Rear, be careful of the following.

The Fronts come with Stainless Steel shims, and Stainless Steel has a lower heat transfer rate than the copper backing plates, so the shim also serves to reduce backing plate heat transfer to the brake caliper pistons and brake fluid.

The Rears do not come with Stainless Steel shims. I think it very unwise to have super high heat conductivity copper resting on the rear caliper piston. So, simply remove the white woven heat barrier / Stainless Steel shim combination from the original factory pads, and remount them to your spiffy new EBC HH pads. I noticed my rear is taking a long time to wear in enough so I get full face contact on both sides of the rotor. This is probably mostly due to the fact I hardly ever use the rear brake.
