Collection: Bluestuff Brake Pads
The Bluestuff NDX is an intermediate grade trackday and race pad making it the material of choice for many club level racers and serious trackday enthusiasts. However, due to Bluestuff having excellent cold friction and being very controllable, this compound has quickly become the brake pad of choice for performance road car drivers in USA and Asia markets where R90 homologation does not apply.
For customers with experience of EBC’s widely acclaimed Yellowstuff material, Bluestuff boasts a similar friction profile but with a usefully higher friction coefficient across the now larger working range, feeling much like you’d imagine Yellowstuff to feel after a double hit of espresso. Bluestuff has a high friction coefficient without feeling grabby, taking things up a notch from EBC’s Yellowstuff material by bringing superb pedal modulation to a track pad with even greater fade resistance.
However, being a track focused material, customers may experience a noticeable increase in both brake dust and brake noise. As is often the case with friction materials, an increase in ultimate performance is often met by an increase in noise and dust.
The biggest advantage of EBC Bluestuff NDX is its bite from cold, allied to progressive brake feel and the ability to bring the car to a complete stop. Bluestuff NDX comes ‘heat scorched’, which means that bed-in time is minimal. After fitment, NDX is capable of four to five races, of up-to 30 laps duration in most cases, but the pads should still be inspected every 30 laps and discarded, when the friction material measures less than one eighth of an inch or 3mm, in order to avoid fade. In street-use, its expected life is considerable and up to 20,000 miles and upwards can be expected, even under harsh driving conditions.
