Use & Caution
  • Medium friction, smooth engagement, low abrasion on iron rotors.
  • Flat torque curve. Can be used with aluminum rotors on Sprint Car applications.
  • Low wear rate at low to medium temperatures
  • Street Use OK
Application
  • Sprint cars with aluminum rotors.
  • Disc brake conversions on street rods, muscle cars, custom show cars, and all moderate performance applications where low noise and dust are important.
Characteristics
  • High performance ceramic based street formula.
  • Lowest dust and noise.
  • Compatible with all types of steel or iron rotors.
  • Aluminum rotors for racing.
Compound Temperature Range & Torque Values
Temperature range and overall friction value are the primary considerations for pad selection. The pads must be capable of maintaining the proper amount of friction for stopping power within the temperatures that will be realized on the track during the event. Then, overall wear rate must be considered. For most asphalt and road race applications, compounds in the high temperature ranges over 1000°F range are usually necessary. Dirt track, drag race, and street performance applications usually operate at temperatures between 500° and 1000°F. Keep in mind that these are general ranges, and not absolute values. Many factors and unforeseen influences can affect brake temperatures. The best indicator for pad selection will always be on track performance. If pad fade (friction loss) due to overheating occurs, then improved cooling, a heavier rotor, or a higher temperature range pad may all become necessary.
