Has anyone found a set of disc brake pads that are low dust producing yet functional well? Currently using EBC green, not crazy about them.

The EBC Green pads are a medium dust fast street pad which are claimed to give a modest increase in braking efficiency. They come into their own if you are repeatedly heavy braking as they reduce the "fade". When "cold" they feel just a bit inefficient, but just normal driving is  not what they are designed to for. If you want to stay with an EBC product they manufacture an OEM replacement pad marketed as Ultimax2. If not go for one of the superior aftermarket products, I always think Ferodo products  take some beating.

I’ll give them a try, thanks. Previously I used the EBC RED pad but can’t seem to find them anywhere.

The Mintex 1144 are a superb pad for road and light competition use.

For serious competition use I always recommend Mintex 1166 or, with 7.5" brakes, the Carbon-Metallic ones as sold by Mini Spares.
