EBS Blue stuff

I see EBS has another pad, Blue Stuff NDX aramid race pads. Has anyone used these. I've been using the Yellow stuff Pad. Great cost point compared to others.

I also currently run Yellowstuff on the Spec Boxster for the track and love them. Redstuff pads work great on my 996 daily driver. I will have to try a set of Bluestuff (and maybe even Orangestuff) on my Spec Boxster to see what the differences might be.

The add say they give better stopping than the yellow pad and still work on the street. With a higher working temperature. I Think I'm buying a set for my next weekend. Keep you informed.

Has anyone found these for a 97-99 base car?

I have been searching for both Bluestuff and the race-only Orangestuff pads but it looks like fitment is limited to Boxster S.

Look like another set of Yellowstuff is going on my car next weekend.

Should be a DP51207NDX but the only thing I've found is overseas. UK Manufacturer shows out of stock. Hoping to receive a set of S fronts today DP51514NDX. I have set DP51208NDX rears on work bench waiting.

Yes they were an improvement over the Yellow pads, and a big improvement over the Stock and red pads. Take them off between race days if you street your car. Compromise is they are dusty and they have a high temp range.

I have since switched to the Pagid Yellow RSL29 last much better under hard use never had a fade during long open track runs. (over 30 min)
