Street Performance Compound Application

New and Improved HP+ Compound

DTC-50

The DTC 50 has tremendous stopping power with an industry leading initial bite. It also has a very predictable Mu gain throughout the torque curve, providing the purest of drivers the most desirable pedal feel on the track

DR-97

Excellent static and dynamic coefficient of friction. Smooth linear torque. Low pad and rotor wear. Brake pads specifically designed for use in drag racing applications.

Black

Medium torque and temperature compound designed to be a good, all-purpose low- cost racing brake pad.

Blue 9012

Medium/High torque and temperature compound with excellent brake modulation. #1 selling brake pad material for SCCA.

MT-4

Medium/High torque and temperature compound with Medium/High initial bite. Brake pads designed for circle track cars under 2800 lbs without high deceleration rates.

Metallic

High torque with linear in-braking characteristics across temperature ranges allowing the driver to brake harder, longer without sacrificing the life of the pad. Specifically designed for ceramic coated brake rotors. Minimal pad wear with high fade resistance.

HT-10

Intermediate to high torque with a smooth initial bite. Very consistent pedal feel. Excellent modulation and release characteristics.

DTC-05

Developed specifically to meet the demands of lower torque Dirt Track Racing. This friction formulation provides very controllable, higher temperature performance as compared to stock pads.

DTC-15

Developed specifically to meet the demands of Dirt Circle Track applications. DTC-15 brake pads are a medium torque compound (less torque than DTC-30, more than DTC-5) with superior release characteristics and excellent cold effectiveness.

DTC-30

Brake pads designed Specifically for Dirt Circle Track applications. Uniquely controllable torque with smooth consistent feel and bite. Superior Release and torque control characteristics.

DTC-60

High torque with less initial bite than DTC 70. Superior release and torque control characteristics. Brake pads designed for cars with high deceleration rates with or without down force. Recommended for use with DTC-70 when split friction between front and rear axle is desired.

DTC-70

Extremely high torque with aggressive controllable initial bite. Superior release and torque control characteristics. Brake pads designed for cars with high deceleration rates with or without down force.

HP Plus - Autocross & Track Brake Compound

HP Plus utilizes a unique ferro-carbon, high-tech friction material that was developed and manufactured for sport driving in autocross, Solo II and “track day” applications. The ferro-carbon formulation offers lower wear rates and higher torque values than other competitive materials.
