EBC will be producing pads in '09

My local EBC dealer found out they will have they greens and reds in stock late February.
I used to use the greens in the UK as a happy medium for road and track use, however that was 5 years ago. I am told the greens may squeak a bit now as they no longer contain asbestos(seems a bit mean to me).
Anyway, just a FYI...

I have seen what the EBC greens and reds can do to a brake disc (severe warping) and I am loathe to try them unless they have changed their formulation now.

Yep EBC red screw my stock rotor to nothing and they crumple from the last 25% within 2 laps. It was a wet track day even.

They are terrible in the cold. I will not use them.

EBC green is for street only. They will not last more than 4 laps.
