Hi Paul, I would highly recommend Remsa pads.
I got them from Brakes Direct in QLD.
Great for street and good enough on the track.
I only ever got pad fade at Eastern Creek where there are high speed braking zones. These pads can handle Wakefield and Winton no problems.

Already got the MX72's.
Just waiting for the braided hoses to turn up, then I may get new front rotors as well.

I used to run the Type R's and loved them both on the street and track.

How did you go with the MX72's? How did they compare to other pads you have tried?

Im looking at getting rid of the EBC Redstuff Im running at the moment, not terrible but not really great either. I had Project Mu HC800's which were epic, but a little noisey on the street and dusted like crazy. Thinking either the MX72's or Ferodo DS2500's.

I have the MX72's & the braided lines but haven't installed then yet as I'm still deciding on new front rotors
