I run Russel lines as well.

I've been running HP+, but I wouldn't recommend them for a DD, they are very noisy until they get to operating temperature. No experience with EBC pads, but I think green stuff would be more than sufficient and more friendly for a daily driver car.

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.

the EBC green stuff pad would work fine. but from what i hear is they dont last all that long. I do hear the HP+ is a great pad for track and autocross. but it might not be the best for DD.

I personally use Hawk HPS, they are great for DD and they stop great. I believe they would be one step below the HP+. And the HPS will last/should last longer than the HP+. I still have my first set of HPS on may car and they feel great after 30k

+1 on the Hawks, they are amazing.
i use them on my daily and autoX car. i honestly don't mind the noise of them on my DD, maybe that's because the dura is sooo loud! especially with the unbreakable dog bone haha.

Well this project is no more. Decided to get crazy in ST instead. Might just keep updating this thread.

Mod, please change title to Zetec Street Touring Build

Just realized that I'll be the only person in FSP in the Cincy and Dayton area.

Ah ... so no fun or challenge then.

Im staying in ST in hopes to finding a way to take out these 89 Civics that are running in our regionals. I am getting closer ... I guess more practice is in order.
