Russel or Goodridge should work fine. make sure you get the later design with teflon internals. Some guys might be dumping older stock on e-bay/elsewhere cheap.

When I started running the HP+ for autocross, I couldn't live without them on the street. Nothing beats a good set of brakes to avoid an accident.

Went through pads in about 12-15K, noisy, with disgusting black dust on the wheels.... I just didnt care, it stopped so good I refused to go back to a conventional pad.

Inventor of "The $0 Thunder Throttle" & "Focuzdax-7" brake swap.
I like the same qualities in women and pistons; Lightweight, fast, and with the smallest skirts possible...
