Pagid RST1 Racing Brake Pads - StopTech C43/ST43 Caliper (Wide Annulus)
Sprint pad with very high friction and initial bite. Wider pad shape for specific StopTech rotors.
Pagid RST Red brake pads are formulated for iron discs and are an upgrade for StopTech C43 and ST43 calipers. This is the Wide Annulus pad shape with a wider (taller) pad - 51mm vs 43mm.
The RST1 compound is a semi-metallic resin bonded material containing steel fibers. This compound has very high friction levels with a progressive torque as temps rise. Initial bite is very high while modulation will require precision and practice. These characteristics reward an experienced driver who only needs to make short and hard braking inputs such as in rally, stock car, or GT racing with lots of aero.
Pagid RST1 Characteristics
+ very high friction level
+ excellent fade resistance
+ progressive torque output as temperatures rise
+ good pad wear with more rotor wear than RSL pads
+ very high initial bite
Front and rear brake compounds should be closely matched to maintain brake balance. Never upgrade one axle and not the other.
