Default 4 pot users: where you getting your brake pads from?

Well, I sold the suby with the 4 pots still on it. The new owner is setting it up for a rally tarmac/hill climb sort of vehicle (full roll cage! ). I had the ferodo DS2500s on it, and obviously he's going to need more a track/high temp pad. I'm trying to be helpful and find out where he can get those sort of pads and suggested:

Carbotech XP/Panther Plus
Ferodos DS3500

anything else that would be a severe service type of pad? Where to get them?

Thanks,
Wylie

does anyone know which years specifically? I searched for 300ZX TT pads before and more than one vintage came up....I think it was like from 91-94 and 94-97 or whatever.

Thanks for the other links....I'm guessing there'll be more in the future with the 06 updates, but he needs them sooner.

oh no, they are already on my car. installed the 4 pots with an H6 rear upgrade and i'm loving it . the setup came with these panther plus pads and its just not ideal for my mainly daily street driven car with a little bit of autox thrown in there so i got bobcat pads instead. now i'm left with brand new panther plus pads here...
bryan
p.s. thanks for the rebuild tips before, it was pretty simple...
