EBC 02-06 RSX Type-S / 00-09 S2000 Yellowstuff Front Brake Pads
EBC Yellowstuff is an aramid fibre based brake compound with high brake effect form cold and is possibly one of the first ever compounds that can be used for STREET AND TRACK DRIVING. These pads do not require warm up but do get even stronger under the heat of hard driving. These are not a low dust pad and if your desire is for a low dust premium street use pad, you should consider EBC Redstuff. EBC Yellowstuff is currently produced in two compound versions - DM1846 and DM1793, both of which have been used with some success in racing. HOWEVER, for standard OEM brakes, as fitted to your car, there is no doubt that the DM1793 is getting better feedback, as it is slightly harder, slightly longer lasting and more appropriate for track day driving.
When considering full race use, DM1793 has also been a strong favourite, having been used for two years in the Swedish Camaro Cup and at numerous other race events where a stock caliper system is fitted.

Great street, moderate track pad
By derek cyphers on 6/8/2013
Went for EBC yellows on all four corners when I found Hawk HP+s a bit too abrasive for street driving. The yellows are fantastic on the street, and acceptable on moderate braking tracks. Where they let me down was in two areas: pad life, which was 1.5 track days and a few months of street driving in between, and how they held up on a hard braking track (Laguna Seca), where they basically melted under the stress of going into Turn 2. If anything, these pads just accentuate the need for a true track pad and then swapping to street pads, because attempts to do both mean you are compromising in at least one place or the other.

Great Auto-X pads
By Joshua Burdick on 9/19/2010
I bought a set of these along with some EBC Ultimax Plain Rotors for Auto-x and these pads have much better bite than stock. They are perfect for performance oriented driving, but they are dustier than normal. I'd say they are about as dusty as Hawk HP+ pads, but they are much quieter.
