    What brake pads do drifters use? I imagine they come in for a lot of abuse, especially the rears.

    Pads as always are down to driver choice and preference. You need something heavy duty and obviously must look to uprate the rear. Many drifters I know regularly adjust their rear brakes and keep them in top condition.

    Fast road pads take some warming up which is not always suited to short drift runs although they take a lot of abuse and get pretty hot. Cheap pads have been known to smoke so don't scrimp!

    EBC yellowstuff in my opinion.

    just ride the brakes to the line to get your pads and rotors nice and warm for your run.
