What are the best pads for e braking with stock rear calipers?
I need more rear brake power for E braking. Looking into a hydraulic conversion but want to update the pads too.

What do Ya'll use?

for what car?

im using Project Mµ D1 spec on my S14. They are awesome. im still using the standard hand brake and you can easily lock 245 semi slicks on high speeds.

For the rear I use whatever's cheapest at Autozone/etc.

Adjust your cable at the lever so the throw isn't too great.

One thing I try to avoid is changing pads right before an event, it takes some time to get them bedded even if you have brand new rotors and they (any pad) won't work well at FOERST. On a car you don't drive much, that means making effort to drive it around town a bit (or putting the rear in the air) and dragging the e-brake on the freeway here and there, letting them cool, repeat...

yeah what tony said. find like some 3 dollar pads and use them. they always work the best for ebraking everything else not so much.

Thanks guys. Good advice here, especially about not changing pads before an event.
