Recommended Full Brake Setup For Evo 6

Hi all,

The time has come to change my pads and discs on my Evo 6. I don't think the discs have been changed since the production of the car.

The car has just hit 65k and is running 350bhp/350ft-lb and used for fast road and maybe around 3-4 track days this year (lockdown dependent).

I'm looking to use the below setup:

Discs: Rosssport Plain Discs, Grooved Discs
Pads: Project MU Type NS400, Pagid RS4.2, Ferodo DS2500/DS3000
Brake Lines: Hel Braided Brake Lines
Brake Fluid: Motul RBF600

Please let me know if this may be overkill for the power I'm running along with any recommendations.

Thanks,

H.

I use plain discs with carbotech xp10s on my 4 and
couldn't fault them on track.
They can howl at times which might not be the best on the road

Weíve run oem brembos and few cars but with aftermarket discs, pads, braided hoses and better fluid, it worked a treat. I personally donít rate Ferodo brake pads due to bad experience, havenít tried others but heard good feedback on project Mu. Iíve always used Carbotech ( XP8 and XP10 ) and have been more than happy with it. Power wise, it was on Evos ranging from 360bhp up to 500.

I'm a big fan of the Carbotech range, but for your purposes I'd recommend Project Mu HC+800s.

...or Performance Friction Z.11 pads; good stopping power, low dust and low noise.

Have them currently on my 6RS and work great on the road and on the occasional track session...

Consider spending a bit more on discs too. Whilst the RossSport plain/grooved discs are a great price, they become more consumable with higher coefficient pads and track days. Perhaps consider spending a bit more on something like DBA discs.

Thanks for the responses. I don't want pads which squeal tbh and it seems the ProjectMU's are mostly sold on Japan so not sure if they're worth shipping over with import tax etc. But will still take them into consideration.

Anymore recommendations from anyone?

Then I will have finally made a decision lol.

Thanks.

It shouldn't be an issue getting Project Mu from a UK stockist....

Just spoke to them and they cant seem to get hold of them.

Have you ever purchased from the below:

I believe the brake pads for Evo 6 are the same for 8/9?

Not used or even heard of that company. I bought Project Mu for an MX5 a year or two back from these people.

Brake fluid is important too, you mentioned some track day use so I would advise using high temp brake fluid and change it at least once a year, even twice to be safe.
Also, braided brake lines, no need to go for hyped up brands as they all use the same hose, the only difference is appearance. Do go for stainless fittings though.

avoid ferodo ds2500

I prefer carbotech but they do squeal.. option is to switch pads for trackday...

as for fluid change.. you will need to bleed a bit before and after the trackday.. keep that in mind..

Ferodo I Dsduo pads and for fast road on Alcon front disc setup are very good and no fade so far. I run std rear calipers but hard PF and they work well. The DS 2500 are crap. The dust is easy to was off.
