    Carbotech Brakes... Innovations in Braking Technology

    Carbotech performance brakes feature a unique brake pad technology that is now being used by pro racers, club racers, tuners, and law enforcement agencies across the country.

    Carbotech brakes utilize a ceramic and metallic construction in a range of compounds that out-perform competitive brakes. Carbotech brakes are made from compounds that offer higher initial bite, torque, and fade resistance providing consistent brake modulation and performance over a wide range of operating temperatures.

    In addition, Carbotech brakes are rotor friendly, saving money and keeping your vehicle out of the service shop far longer than the competition.

    Carbotech brakes give you:

    • Assured stopping power
    • Increased overall performance and handling
    • Excellent modulation and release characteristics
    • Better control entering the corners
    • Longer brake pad and rotor life—up to four times longer than the competition!
    • Longer rotor life
    • Non-corrosive dust

    Carbotech is proud to have been selected as the Official Brake Pad of the United States Endurance Racing Association.

  • Ferodo

    Ferodo Racing Pads improve your cars stopping power, provide consistent performance, and make sure you are "In Control". Ferodo Racing Brake Pads are available in DS1.11 (W Compound) DS2500, DS3000, DS3000 Plus and many other race compounds.

  • G-LOC

    G-LOC racing brake pads are serious race brake pads made for the highest level of competition. We hope you never experience G-LOC (G-force induced loss of consciousness) on track, but we hope you get the most out of your braking system, especially when you must run a factory caliper. There are "tricks" used by boutique race pad manufacturers that the others can not do. One is to have the friction material go to the very edge of the backing plate. G-LOC does not stop there, they make sure the pad face is perfectly flat (no bevels on the edge) to give you the most surface area available. G-LOC knows race brakes and the podium proves it. 

  • Hawk Brake

    Hawk Performance is a leading supplier of severe duty and high-performance friction products manufactured in ISO-certified facilities for the motorsports and performance automotive aftermarket. Hawk Performance products are engineered to allow users to control, command, and conquer the terrain for which their vehicles are designed.

    Decades of experience in developing friction materials for aerospace, industrial, military, automotive and motorsports applications give Hawk Performance an advantage over the competition. In the past decade, Hawk Performance friction products have won more motorsports championships than any other friction manufacturer making them the #1 selling performance racing brake pad.

    Compound Descriptions:

    90 compound 

    This compound has been a favorite of race driving schools because of its modulation characteristics. Used exclusively at race schools such as Bob Bondurant, Derek Daly, and Jim Russell because of its forgiving nature.  90 Compounds is very easy on the discs, yet has higher cold bite than 83 compound along with less torque rise for improved modulation.  90 Compound has been replaced by 97 in most applications, but is still available in a limited number of applications.

       90 Recommended Applications: 
       Recommended for applications that demand good wear and modulation.
       GT
       SCCA Racing
       Porsche/BMW Club Racing

    97 compound 
    Although its initial development was through CART Champ Cars, this compound has also been a favorite of sportscar endurance racing.  97 compounds have won races in CART, ALMS, Grand Am, and ASA. It is also a preferred pad for touring car and rally. Higher bite than 90 compound with slightly higher torque. Great modulation. Very flat torque curve with enhanced release characteristics. 97 compounds are very easy on the discs, with very low wear. This compound is becoming a favorite of driving schools because it shares similar characteristics with 90 compounds but with even less wear. Highly recommended as a general-purpose pad for all venues. (When out, refer to 01)

       97 Recommended Applications:
       Recommended for applications that demand excellent wear and modulation.
       NASCAR Short Track and Road Course Rear
       NASCAR Speedway and Intermediate Rear

    01 is one of the most popular race compounds in the PFC's arsenal. Slightly higher bite and torque than 83 compound for the first 2/3's of the stop. At the end of the stop, 01 compound has less torque scatter for improved modulation with excellent release and a flat torque curve. 01 compound is very easy on the discs with very low wear, on par with 83 compounds.

       01 Recommended Applications:
       01 is recommended as an all-purpose pad in a wide variety of applications.

The release and modulation characteristics are second to none. Very low abraded disc wear with a fine micronic polished disc finish. Despite its considerable performance, 07 will have slightly better wear than 05.  This compound demands the most from the vehicle setup and is designed to handle the most severe applications. 

       07 Recommended Applications:
       For high grip, high down force, or severe duty applications.
