1997-2013 Corvette Front Brake Pads: EBC Yellowstuff DP41162R
Fits: 1997-2013 Corvette C5 and C6 except Z06/ZR1/Grand Sport/J56
If your Corvette brakes are going to be subjected to the rigors of track-day duty or autocrossing, it’s time to upgrade to a high-performance brake pad like EBC Yellowstuff. Don’t let the funny name fool you: EBC Yellowstuff Corvette brake pads are a serious tool for performance driving. Best of all, Yellowstuff brake pads aren’t so aggressive that they require swapping out before/after your high-performance driving event. You can use Yellowstuff brake pads on your C5 or C6 daily driver too, though you’ll experience more dusting than with a street-centric brake pad like EBC Redstuff Corvette ceramic brake pads. Life is all about tradeoffs!
Most of us at Vette Lab tend to drive our Corvettes hard, even the ones we use on a regular basis for commuting and road trips. For this type of use, a dual-purpose brake pad like EBC Yellowstuff is a perfect compromise. There can be some noise before the brake pads get heat into them, and rotor wear is a bit faster than with a set of pure street Corvette brake pads. But the harder brake pedal feel and increased fade resistance when driving hard is more than worth it to a lot of drivers. Be honest about what you want from your Corvette’s brakes – or, more accurately, what you’re asking from your Corvette brakes – and pick a brake pad that fits your needs best.
EBC Yellowstuff Corvette brake pads are going to deliver maximum stopping power as the top priority. Fade resistance is outstanding for shorter track events and light racing, and EBC’s brake in surface coating means you’ll get great brake feel right after installing new pads. If you want low dust and low noise as your top priority, while still maintaining excellent fade resistance and stopping power better than OEM, EBC Redstuff Corvette brake pads might be a better choice. Whichever Corvette C5 or C6 brake pads you choose, let Vette Lab be your choice for EBC brakes.
