Brembo Monobloc 6 Piston Brake Pads
(Ferodo compound code H)
The DS2500 is currently the best hybrid track/street pad on the market. It features the moderately high bite and solid fade resistance of a track pad, with the relatively low dust and noise levels of a street pad. When used as a street pad, it can produce some squeal on certain vehicle platforms. During aggressive driving the DS2500 is known for its flat torque curve, which means as temperatures go up, the response through the brake pedal remains consistent. If you drive aggressively on the street, do some canyon runs, autoX, and maybe some light track duty on street tires, the DS2500 is tough to beat.
When used on fast, heavy cars on the track with race tires, pad wear rates tend to be higher than some of the full track pad compounds. Under those conditions, Essex would recommend the Ferodo DS3000 or DS1.11.
The main characteristics of DS2500 are:
- Consistent coefficient of friction (0,42) at all temperatures
- Low noise
- low dusting
- Long pad life
- Kind on discs
- Race pedal fee
(Ferodo compound code R)
DS3000 is one of the most decorated race pads in the global motorsports market, having won in diverse venues from rally to open wheel cars. The DS3000 has high bite and good fade resistance. It has a slightly rising torque curve, which means that as temperatures go up, bite increases slightly. Although the bite of the DS3000 is slightly higher than the DS1.11, wear rates are also higher. If you are doing extended lapping (30 minute+ sessions) or endurance racing, and are concerned about pad wear rates, the DS1.11 is probably the better choice for you.
The main characteristics of the DS3000 are:
- Very High coefficient of friction (0,54) at all speeds and temperatures
- High initial bite
- Predictability and control because of the unvarying torque output
- Low off-brake drag
(Hawk compound code G)
The DTC-60 was designed as a rear application for those running DTC-70 in their front calipers. The DTC-60 has slightly less bite than the DTC-70, and when run with the DTC-70 in the front, the balance remains a bit more front biased and stable (all else held equal).
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.
(Hawk compound code U)
The DTC-70 is one of Hawk's newest motorsport compounds, offering the highest bite and heat capacity in Hawk's range, along with improved pedal modulation. The DTC-70 is a popular pad across a very wide range of racing venues, and has become the pad a choice in numerous SCCA and NASA Series. Many customers report that the pad performs very similarly to the PFC01 on track. DTC-70 is typically used as a front application, and on front engine cars is commonly coupled with DTC-60 or HT-10 in the rear.
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.
