I need some new front discs for my IV. I had ordered some Pagid 16 groove discs but have just had an email saying the 16 groove discs have been discontinued, the 8 groove are still available. Are the 8 groove discs any good? I do the occasional trackday so standard are no good. What other discs fall into my £250 price limit for just discs?

Hi m8!

I use the standard discs for trackdays - the grooved ones can eat up pads, especially if fitted with grooves backwards...

My standard discs (£200 from Camskill) only last a few trackdays before cracking (with DS2500s), but don't warp and work well enough for me!

I've used drilled discs before, but these crack even more quickly than plain ones, in my experience...

If you find any bargains, let us know!

Cheers :)

I know what you mean about the drilled discs cracking easily, I had that problem on my previous car. At the moment I am leaning towards the EBC grooved and dimpled discs (turbo groove) as Brakes4u do them for £188.24 delivered (pair). I know a couple of people using these discs with good results (different car though)

I've used these on my GTO and a m8 has them on his M3 - seem OK ish, but very noisy in operation...

Black Diamond discs were by far the best on my GTO - can get grooved/drilled or both - I might try them next, or maybe DBA (Wallace in aberdeen are their importers).

Cheers :)

p.s. I think I saw you & your misses cars (FTO) on KH the last time I was up? Nice motors :coolsm:

Cheers for the replies, I bought some 16 groove discs from Madmat on the lancer-evo.net forum.

Yeah that was us, we both had a good time. I did some in-car filming but somehow managed to record over alot of my driving footage :moon: Hopefully we'll be there on the 6th.
