EBC Brake Pads for Viggen

Anyone gotten any?

I know the caliper is supposed to be the same as the regular 9-3's, but EBC specifies a different pad on the Viggen (front) than the non-Viggen models.

Same pad? Different pad?

Look up the part number on a set of stock pads, if that part number interchanges with non-viggens then they SHOULD be the same pad, no clue why they would have a different part number. Sometimes aftermarket/non-OEM companies get screwy with interchanges.

I've had greenstuffs on the front for some time. Low dust, real good stopping power and easy on the rotors.

looking at the EBC catalog, this is what i've come up with:

the pads are an identical shape, but the regular 9-3 pad has a slightly different style clamp for attaching to the caliper, than the viggen. but, looking at the picture, they are basically identical and should be interchangeable?? pads are shaped the same, 156x74x19mm.

it's very confusing that they'd offer different styles for the reg 9-3 and the viggen, since nobody else that i have looked at does...

The redstuff is pretty good. I will change to yellowstuff pads next time, is that what you are going with?

I have greenstuffs on all 4 corners, Viggen up front and Aero in the back. I just ordered the regular 9-3 ones. The calipers are the same, the carrier is the only diff part.

I hate my greenstuffs I have on my 9-3, even for street use. They turn the front wheels black within a week (does not constitute low dust in my opinion), and I got them to fade out during rallycross on a 30 degree day. I know of a former member here who had theirs fade out after minimal lapping on track days.

They are easy on the rotors, but at this point I'd rather have a pad that helps the car stay on par with my Aero and BMW when braking. I'm sure the added leverage of having the viggen setup makes them more tolerable, but I am still very unimpressed with them.

Conversely, I am on my second set of Redstuffs on my Aero and I think they are great!

Yellowstuffs up front, red stuffs in back. OEM Viggen rotors.

the greenstuff pads i had werent even enough to keep up with spirited driving through the mountains in montana. they're absolutely terrible if you do any kind of performance driving at all, and care about not dying.

Thanks Ben!

I was just worried I'd have all the shit ready to go and then the pads don't fit and I'd have to put it all back together with the old stuff and be sad.

I found treating my wheels with embalming fluid helped greatly in reducing the amount of brake dust the wheels retained

Even back when I was running stock early 900 brakes with zimmerman cross drilled rotors the responses on the combo were mixed.

I've used a handful of pads, and now that I use hawk HPS, I'm NEVER going back.
The only pads I haven't used that I have heard are good, are porterfields.

It's likely that EBC has different pads listed, beause the viggens are slotted.

The HPS is still a pretty tame street pad, fine for most people, but probably not the best on a summer only car that sees track time. Hawk does have a great lineup of other more agressive pads as well. I'll have to wrestle between some of their more agressive pads or the yellowstuffs for my next set.

Apparently, the new yellowstuff compound is superior in every way to the redstuff pads... My redstuff pads can be a little hairy when they are dead cold, the new yellowstuff compound solves this issue while gaining even an even higher friction co-efficient when warm. Kind of a win-win if you ask me.

i have hps's in the brembos for regular driving; they have a good initial bite, but i wouldnt track them. i'm contemplating getting a set of the carbotech XP10™ or XP12™ pads that feffman recommended. 250 to 2000 degree working temp is a pretty wide range

Why go to the yellows?

Green stuff on my 9000 aero are garbage. I need new pads because I feel its dangerous driving fast w/ them. Ive heard good things about the porterfield pads.

-jk, you like the red stuff enough to use them again?
