Stay away from Mintex Red Box pads. I had the Stage III ECS kit. A couple of
aggressive stops (non-track) turned them into Red Box Goo. Didn't boil the
fluid, as the pedal had plenty of pressure. ECS no longer sells their kits
with the Red Box pads, I'm pretty sure Tom got a few calls about this. The
kit now comes with Hawks (HPS, IIRC) which is what I switched to. I was
happy with the Hawks.
