Here's to a new year, lets hope 2022 leaves 2021 in its smoke! To start the year off we at EBC Brakes would like to give you car enthusiasts the chance of winning one free set of pads (front or rear) for any vehicle of your choice. One randomly selected forum member can choose any pad from our entire range.

To enter for your chance to win, I would like you to share with us what you believe has been the number one mod/upgrade you have made to your vehicle that everyone should do?

The lucky winner will be randomly selected and announced within a few days after the closing date of 1st February 2022 and details will be posted on this forum within a few days of the closing date.

Please be aware that this thread may appear in more than one section on the forum and one winner will be selected from the whole forum, not a winner per thread.
Pad choice will be based on availability and where a chosen pad is unavailable, an alternative will be offered.

If you are not the lucky winner, EBC Brakes are pleased to be able to offer a 10% discount off their braking products to all members of the forum community using code FORUM10USER
This discount code can be redeemed at EBC Brakes Direct | EBC Brake Pads | EBC Brake Discs or with our USA partners at Perfect Brakes | EBC Brake Pads | EBC Rotors


Any questions or application issues please let us know.

GOOD LUCK………

Nice to see these back for 2022!

I'll take a perhaps unconventional answer and say driver mods. I've modded every car I've owned and every car responds differently or "needs" different parts, to be the #1 mod. My Merkur needed brakes/suspension more than power, whereas my ZX3 was the opposite. The one commonality across every car has been improving the driver behind the wheel. Driving schools have improved making stock or aftermarket parts work to their potential, understanding what the car is doing, and sometimes shifting mod priorities once you learn how to use the parts that are already there, effectively.

A driver who thinks they need suspension as the #1 mod may not understand weight transfer and how to initiate it. You stiffen up everything, ruin the balance of the car, but "it feels sporty". Driving classes have taught me to appreciate a bone stock car for what it is, drive it well, and then truly see where the shortcomings are.

This is a tough one. I would say that everyone needs a proper tune. Yes you can bolt part on to the car but if it isn't optimized then you are leaving power on the table. I have seen a no bolt on tuned car do very well against lightly modded bolt on cars with no tune. :)
