I wouldn't use any EBC pads, whatever the colour lol
If you want superb pads, try Carbotech XP8's, these have an awesome reputation with the GTR and Evo crowd, and for good reason.
I use the XP10 compound in my Evo 6 sprint car, and after using many, many different fast road and race pads over the last 25 years, they are the best I've used. Great modulation, and superb bite and feel. You will not get them to fade, they will take everything you throw at them.
Other pads worth a try are Pagid RS 4-2-1 blacks, Ferrodo DS3000, Perfromance friction PF97 or 01 compound, Endless, Project Mu.
