    About Mintex from Autospeed website

    In addition to Mintex's standard aftermarket materials, the company also offers a specialised range called the C-Tech racing pads. This family of materials has been developed from Mintex's involvement in motorsport and covers a spectrum of vehicles from hot hatches to full race machines.

    Mintex M1144 - The M1144 material is mainly used for fast road use and is primarily targeted at hot hatch drivers - for fast road use as well as light competition such as karting, hill climb and single seater racing cars. One of the main characteristics of this material is the ability to work from cold, which gives the user the confidence of a standard material on the first application of the brakes. The benefit of M1144 is experienced as the temperature within the brakes starts to increase. M1144 will remain stable and consistent through to 450 degrees C, where a standard material at this temperature will most certainly start to fade.

    The other three materials M1155, M1166 and M1177 are specifically for circuit and rally competition use. Under no circumstances should they be used for normal road applications. Applications such as Group A and N rally cars and circuit saloons best suit these compounds. M1155 has a very high friction level that remains consistent to a maximum operating temperature of 550-600c.

    EBC pads are [email protected], they can't handle high temps, a real shame for so called kevlar pads.


    Best pads are Pagid in "RS" qsuality, but they're most expensive than Mintex or ferodo racing pads.

    Personally I cannot bring myself to use the EBC V4 after they cracked and seperated themselves from the backing plate in my "6" after 2 driver training days on the track.

    EBC has revised the formula since then but the aversion to their use remains.

    Thanks for that Tekkie. The M1144 sound like they're exactly what I'm looking for! Do you have a rough idea how much a front set for the '6 would be?
