I rebuilt my brakes two years ago, and as Mike says I had an extended discussion with EBC over pad options. Paraphrasing, but the conversation was pretty much;

- Green Stuff is for fast driving/heavy braking, generates little dust. Not worth it on a DeLorean unless you are pushing a lot of power over stock.
- Red Stuff is for high performance cars street cars and similarly DeLorean probably never pushes enough power to get maximum use.
- Yellow Stuff is for street / occasional track use/spirited driving. Superior cold braking, and designed for cars in the power range of the DeLorean


They were surprisingly familiar with the DeLorean and potential power-train upgrades, and since I was stock they suggested stick with yellowstuff and I've been very happy. Upgraded to Ed's vented discs earlier in the year but then my water pump went so I've done about 30 miles with them total.

I'm running around with RED STUFF on the front and GREEN STUFF on the back. Don't have anything to compare it against. Always been there since i bought the car. 7yrs now.
