Hi.
Have been running EBC 'green stuff' ft & rear disc brake pads and slotted rotors for some time now.
After driving from Houston to Atlanta 500 miles 1st day, 360 miles 2nd day, on I75 north smelled what I thought was electrical burning, brake peddle became very mushy and the RR pulled to on side. Brakes were generally un-responsive,
peddle almost to the floor, mushy and lack of brake pressure.

Managed to pull off the interstate with no issue. (By shear coincidence into the parking lot of Road Britannia independant rover repair shop)
No dash board warning lights, no brake fluid leak, on obvious problem.
Restared RR after approx 20mins brakes now fully restored.
Pulled front drivers wheel, the disc pads appeared to have a white powdery coat ( at least 1/4 inch) of friction material remaining, disc looks to be OK.

Have been running around town with no further incident.
Can only think that the brake fluid 'boiled' (have not changed this for several years)

Any body experienced above problem.

This is not good. Change all of your brake fluid immediately.
