What is the current favourite make/model of pads these days?
A search finds plenty of prior threads but pad formulas are changing all the time so a favourite of 3 years ago may not be true today.
Pagid RS29 was a popular option in 2015.

Should say the car will mainly be track use but it will need to get IVA first so need something with a bit of bite when cold.

Thanks
Steve

Pagid RSL01

More bite than the RS29's, kinder on discs and high temp ranges.... Ive just bought 3 pairs to kit the noble out with them smile

Are these replacements or alternatives to rs29s Andy?
I love my rs29s, if there are now pads that are better in all ears smile

Replacement I think... but RS29's are still available as they have a big following.

According to Pagid they outperform the RS29 in every way... we will see.

+1. I use CL RC5+ for road and track. They are excellent even when cold. They are a bit pricey and can be noisy until they have some use in them.
