I really want to build up my quads and my fav exercise is doing leg extensions I do about 6 reps of 120 then about 15 reps of 60 then about 6 - 10 reps with 80 on the leg extensions (which burns burns burns) but not sure what other exercises I can do that target my quads I know squats but what other good exercises are the best?

Here's a typical leg day routine for me. I'll warm up with leg extensions, 3 sets at about 75% intensity which is 160 lbs. Then I'll go barbell back squat. 6 sets, 15, 15, 12, 8, 8, 4. Leg press, same rep scheme but back up to 15 again. Leg extension superset, which is where I start to feel the most intense burn. Barbell back lunge, 3 sets 10 reps.  Hamstring curl superset. And then I will goblet squat with light weight to failure. End with a weighted wall sit. If you get thru this torture you will build some nice looking legs in no time.

I forgot to mention I do calve extensions in between all exercises.

What do you mean when you say go until failure ?

He means go till u can't do anymore. So instead of trying to reach a certain amount (number) just keep going to u can't anymore and u NEED a rest

Quads do take time, but there's plenty to do. You are already do leg curls and extensions, but you should also try leg press, squats (both body weight and weighted) sprints, go to be local track and run the stairs in the bleachers. 

Keep building up.  For weight workouts keep adding weight each day you do it. For stays and sprints add an extra lap each time. Switch, odd days weights, even days run. 

I do tons of lower body work outs all the time. If our looking for a partner let me know!  Good luck!
