Re: Pads for ZH (heavy towing)

Use a Bendix performax pad. They should be ample. My mates and I use them in our XB's to stop us @ the end of a drag slip. If they can stop us rapidly and repeatedly from highspeed. They'll work well on your ZH.

Re: Pads for ZH (heavy towing)

consider an upgrade to cross-drilled and slotted rotors too... as you'll know if you tow heavy loads much - brake fade REALLY sucks!

I don' think there are as benificial when towing. I've towed 3 tonne behind my EL. Brake fade wasn't an issue. I think the pad choice depends whether you'll have fade or not. Cross drilled and slotted are more a race type disc as when towing you don't need the brakes to bite that hard. Otherwise you may end up jack knifing the trailer or have the car on the trailer in your boot.
