OEM are fine for every day use.
Couple of guys I know are using EBC Yellow Stuff for track day exploits - apparently a bit more progessive and last well.

Depends on use I guess but as always its the bedding in process that is important.

I’ve had no problem with yellows on track
Just bought Ferodo ds1.11 from kam racing
Fitted pads with new discs front and rear on Monday but not had the car out yet so cannot comment yet
I will post when tried out in anger

I expect the ds1.11 will be far better than ebc yellow

Anything other than OEM will be an improvement...

It’s weird that the standard renault pad material transferred over onto the discs thus causing lumpy pad deposits to sit on the disc causing judder
Are the standard pads a cheap sub standard pad that melts and sticks to the discs
No One that I know off has explained this and renault has totally denied that it’s their pad that’s the problem
I have tried many different pads and none of them give this pad transfer judder
Pagid euro car parts standard are ok but only seem to last one track day
Yellow stuff a little wooden but take the heat and last a few track days
Brembo from ecp again ok for track but don’t last long
Tried ebc green are ok . but gone down to metal after only half a track day 30 Laps or so
Ferodo DS1.11 still to try and will post up results

Not sure what OEM was before, but on 2018 220T I got some kind of ferodo pads from factory (will try to read numbers tomorrow if possible, 2500 most likely). 1 track day so far and all is fine.

Cheers for replies all.

Car won’t be going on track but the OEM pads haven’t lasted long at all. 7 month! 👀

@shocker what disk were you using? OEMs with different pads or others?
