1997-2013 Corvette Front Brake Pads: EBC Redstuff DP31162C
Fits: 1997-2013 Corvette C5 and C6 except Z06/ZR1/Grand Sport/J56
EBC Redstuff front brake pads for Corvette deliver a great blend of stopping performance and daily-driver livability. Let’s face it: If you mainly street-drive your Corvette C5 or C6, a super high-performance brake compound is going to be a lot more trouble than it’s worth. Just because your Corvette is capable of killer track performance doesn’t mean you use the car that way. Your brake pads really need to match how you use your car. Otherwise, you’re going to be disappointed by the amount of brake dust, noise and rotor wear you get with your Corvette.
Plus, you may be surprised to learn that a track brake pad may actually produce longer stopping distances on a street-driven Corvette. Ultra high-performance Corvette brake pads are engineered to work their best when exposed to the intense heat of competition use. If you’re just boulevard cruising in your C5 or C6, those pads will never reach the temperatures at which they perform best, and you end up with soft brake feel.
EBC does make ultra high-performance brakes for Corvettes, but the Redstuff brake pad is engineered for street duty instead. You’ll still get improved brake feel and shorter stopping distances over a stock brake pad, but Corvette drivers who simply enjoy cruising will appreciate the low dust and extremely quiet operation in these ceramic-compound EBC brake pads. EBC Redstuff Corvette C5 and C6 brake pads also come with a special coating on the friction surface that dramatically reduces the amount of time it takes to break in your new brakes. That means consistent, drama-free stopping in your Corvette faster than after a brake job with competitive pads.
EBC makes a full line of Corvette brake pads and compounds. If you want something more aggressive than the Redstuff pad – for example, if you mainly street-drive your Corvette but also autocross or do the occasional high-performance driving school, EBC Yellowstuff Corvette brake pads might be a better choice.
