What brake pads?

Years ago the mintex M1144 pads were the ones to go for... what are the currently favoured choice for Cortina calipers for a road car?

Try some Apec. Better when cold, better when hot, no squeal, half the price.

I swapped from mintex M1144 to Ferodo ds2500 as they are much quieter and have a more progressive braking feel, this is for willwood callipers on a sierra upright.

I've tried quite a few over the years (inc 1144 and the ds2500) but the ones i like best are the Ferodo ds1.11.
