This high friction racing material has grown to be a very popular choice for drivers who need the highest possible friction with a low pad temperature. Developed and tested in the vintage racing community the R4-1 gives an average coefficient of friction of .56 with peak levels up to .600. Having tremendous stopping power, the R4-1 pad material can reach upwards of .5 friction level when pad temperature is a very low 200 F . Drivers can still have a high friction brake pad without worry of the pad becoming too cold to be effective when the car is driven only moderately. For use when pad temperatures are under 600 F and peak temperatures are not over 1000 F. Widely used on Vintage GT and formula cars the R4-1 has gained great popularity as an excellent auto-cross, off-road and rally-cross pad material. Great modulation, consistent pedal feedback and the same rotor friendliness as our other carbon kevlar compounds. .
BRIAN'S APPLICATION NOTES: This is the MOST aggressive pad you can actually leave on the car between events that has heat range to handle normal street use too....at least in warmer climates.
