EBC 02-06 RSX Type-S Redstuff Front Brake Pads
There are TWO reasons our customers love Redstuff, First because they are the lowest dust pad we have encountered by reducing dust by 60-90%. Plus the minimal dust you see is very easily removed with a simple sponge wash as it contains no steel fibre particles as in ALL OTHER pads. Second they brake like an alligator right from cold (as good as Original pads or better) and just get better as they heat up.
This material is a Kevlar fibre based brake compound enhanced with ceramic particles. If you have previously tried EBC redstuff (pre-ceramic compound) this material is light years ahead. It lasts longer, it brakes better and is quieter.
Being a hard wearing pad, bed-in times can be as long as 1000 miles and drivers must be patient until the pad takes up the shape of their disc (brake rotor). This is a truly impressive fast road pad for repeated heavy braking.
It emits far less dust than semi-metallic pads and has been proven to stop a passenger car/sedan/sport compact/hot hatch 13 metres quicker than OEM pads from 100mph/160kph. Features EBC Brake-In surface coating which conditions rotor surface and accelerates pad bed-in. Nominal friction coefficient 0.5 with approx. 50% dust reduction.

i run my car on mountains and other fun roads. i remember when i overheated my oem brakes and i could not stop, it was a scary moment. i got these bad boys to attempt to mitigate some of the heat soak and they work wonderfully. yes wheels get dusty, and sometimes they squeal. but if this bothers you than why are you even looking at performance brakes? the longest i've taken these in one go is a 24 mile downhill run without any heat soaking, they brake harder as they warm up too. Fair warning they suck at braking when they are cold.

A great pad!
By Karl Schoenefeld on 2/18/2016
These fit too tightly in the caliper tracks, so I needed to grind a bit off the end of the pad, but they certainly do stop well, and the dust is easily removed from the wheels. They bedded easily, and there is no noise. I also have braided stainless hoses, so the brakes are right there immediately when I need them.

Great brakes....Easy install (as all brake pads should be!)...I've had these for about 1,000 miles now and no complaints whatsoever. I'm not sure what the issue is with the other users and noise, as I haven't heard them squeal once. Autocrossed with them twice, and they performed excellently. Even had an S2000 driver ask to run my '05 Type S for a heat, and he specifically complimented the brakes. Dust has also not been bad, but I clean my car regularly anyway so there's never much chance for build up. One thing I will say is they can make smooth street driving more difficult, as the initial grab is much stronger. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

good but loud
By Austin on 9/27/2012
These are good pads. Noticed some increase in stopping power. One major con however is that these are not quiet by any means. Very noisy especially while breaking in. Would recommend the green stuff first before these. NTL still a great pad.

Average, lots of dust
By Kazumi Nomura on 6/30/2012
These products do make a lot of brake dust. Wish I had a photo to upload. My silver wheels are now gunmetal grey. The braking seems the same. Nothing noticable, as far as difference in stopping. I bought some gray spray paint to paint them so they would match the calipers. I thought the covers/slips they came with might cover the red paint on the pads (first brake job) so I did not use the paint I had bought. The covers/slips do not cover the pads so unless you want the red to show, paint them first.
