EBC Blue Stuff...Is it me Or...?

So I just got back from my first time attack race of the year, I ran my turbo 330. It has 135i calipers/CSL 2 piece rotors in the front, and stock 330 hardware in the back.

This is the first season I am tracking this car hard, but I have been around racing for a while. I bedded them in properly

Its time attack, so I'd say at most 6 hard laps were made consecutively. I think I had 6 sessions.

The car was fast, we beat the previous lap record to finish third and .3s off the new record and the win. We had some fueling issues, could have maybe gone faster.

The pads however....are GONE. Nothing left. Maybe 2mm n one side, 3mm on the other. Seriously gone. I am happy I checked before I head out to a drift event tomorrow, not that you use the brakes much there. Throwing stockers on for that.

This cant be normal, can it? I got them for price mainly, but damn!

Anything more aggressive that will last a while longer and stop me sooner?

Pics to come soon, going to rip them out now...

Just get some Hawk race pads (don't know which is the current race pad). If you drive to the event you'll just have to change them out when you get there and before you leave. You DON'T want to drive on race pads on the street or you'll be replacing rotors.

On another note, what solved your misfire? Did I miss it in the other thread?

Went through the car and installed the starvation kit, going to an event today to try to see if I can make it happen again. Well see....

Good luck.

I ran Yellowstuff on my 325Ti (Compact) last year and they were gone in two track days and about 4000miles street driving. Just the fronts. Rears are OK. So I switched to Bluestuff NDX. Just got back from a day at Spa and the Nürburgring and they didn't seem like they seem that worn.....But I'll have to check closer now!
I did however read that EBC design their pads to be the replacement part so they are very light on rotors....But your experience seems excessive.
