I can't comment on the Winmax, I did just recently put in the NS400's and DBA T2's and so far I am very impressed. Completely changed the braking performance of the car. I have the Lib GT brakes on the front and they came with stock rotors and I think Bendix pads that were pretty unresponsive. The pads I have found have a soft initial bite when cold. However after one or two stabs of the pedal they are great. When you get them hot they stop on a dime. Noise was slight for the first 500km while they settled in and only at low speeds like stop start traffic. Dust so far is minimal I thought it would be a lot more with the slotted rotors as well, but pretty happy with the new set up.

I went for the T3's, I agree I feel the difference.

My experience is that the dust was only an issue when I only had the from done. Once I put the slotted rears on, the dust reduced considerably, the brake pedal felt different too.

It feels much more predicable braking under load.

No experience with Winman.
I was very happy with Project Mu.
Works well cold and can take some abuse.
No nose
Average dust

An important note - I had a set of NS400s, I bought them because of one of the features of having the slot in the middle (before the T3s).

I originally questioned that the one I received did not have the slot, but told that was the new design. I accepted the explanation.

HOWEVER - when I did install the T3s, after inspecting the pads, I found cracks in the pads. I promptly reported this. Th pads were replaced..... With one that had slots !

I was told that the cracks would not be an issue, but they replaced them anyway!

YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE YOU BREAK THEM IN AS PER THE INSTRUCTIONS!
