EBC RedStuff Ceramic Brake pads, not recommended
They basically wear too fast and seem to be hard on rotors despite that. I think they were cooled just fine given the Porsche 996's excellent brake system. Trying Hawk HP Plus with Frozen Rotors now.
I posted the information with final pictures on the final review at http://www.trackpedia.com/forums/showthread.php?t=398

Hmmm, if the above is true, why does the manufacturer claim different:
Hawk Ceramic Brake Pad
There are three things you can do to control brake dust on your vehicle: Not drive, install some sort of wheel shield, or install a Hawk ceramic brake pad set. Option one isn’t really an option, and option two may work for some folks. But for most of us, the thought of improved braking along with losing the brake dust has led us to the Hawk ceramic brake pad. Made from a composite of ceramics and other organic materials, Hawk ceramic brake pad sets fit just like your OE pads but they don’t break down in the same way. That’s why the Hawk ceramic brake pad generates less dust. If dust is your major concern, then you’ll be thrilled with the way your car stops with a Hawk ceramic brake pad set installed. High friction combines with low noise to help your brake system work more effectively, lowering your stopping distances. So Hawk ceramic brake pad sets don’t just keep things cleaner, they keep you and your family safer. Your brakes are arguably the most important part of your car, so invest in some better technology next time you change them. Invest in Hawk ceramic brake pad components to get the best stopping power without sacrificing dust levels and rotor wear.
