Performance Friction pads for track and race use
Race Ready™Carbon Metallic®.
It's won more races than any other pad in the world. Our #1 goal is
to give you the braking performance you need at 55 MPH, 95 MPH and
over 200 MPH.
Performance Friction will be there for you from lap 1 to the
1-to-go, when you need us the most.
Our motorsports staff has over 80 years of combined actual race
team experience. We have a pit-level knowledge of your needs. We've
been there with you, at all the racing venues, to consult with your
team on improving performance. Working with racers like yourself,
together we have made Performance Friction the #1 brake in
motorsports. Thank you for your support.
This compound was designed as an all-purpose pad where excellent
controllability was a priority over ultimate stopping power. Due to
its excellent modulation characteristics, this pad has proved very
popular with race schools, rallying, and as a rear pad for
applications such as touring cars. 97 has the lowest wear of all
compounds, typically providing two to three times more life
expectancy than competitors. This compound can also dramatically
extend disc life.
97 is a medium torque race compound and as a result can provide
reduced brake temperatures in situations where poor cooling can
result in premature disc failure. 97 has the flattest torque curve
of all the Performance Friction compounds. Effective from 167°F and
reach 2000°F (75°C, reach 1100°C), 97 uses Performance Friction’s
unique lubrication package that maintains a minimal transfer layer
on the disc to help prevent brake judder and provide excellent
release properties, therefore reducing overall drag in the brake
system. 97 is extremely easy on the discs with very low wear.
97 is now being used in Bondurant, Derek Daley, Dale Jarrett
Driving Adventure, Panoz, Mid Ohio, and Jim Russell racing schools
because of it's long wear vs. performance vs. control and
Released in 2001,this compound has increased initial bite and
improved modulation. The friction level has been increased for the
first two-thirds of the braking event, with flatter torque curve
and more linear friction curve compared to 83 and 93. This allows
the driver to attack the brake pedal later, reducing the time spent
on the brakes. Very smooth release will not over-slow the car, and
won't overwhelm the car's set-up.
Like 97 compound, 01 has excellent modulation characteristics that
improve controllability and driver confidence. 01 uses Performance
Friction’s unique lubrication package that maintains a minimal
transfer layer on the disc to help prevent brake judder and provide
excellent release properties, therefore reducing overall drag in
the brake system. 01 is extremely easy on the discs with very low
wear. Effective from 167°F and reach 2000°F (75°C , reach 1100°C),
optimum operating range is between 860°F and 1004°F (460°C and
This new compound represents the cutting edge of brake pad
technology. Extremely long life, but with torque similar to 01,
this pad will be the leading choice for endurance racing and a
