Carbotech AX6 Performance Brake Pads are some of the highest performing brake pads in the world, coming directly from Carbotech's research and manufacturing plant in Concord, NC, the racing headquarters of the USA. 

Carbotech Performance Brakes utilize compounds that are rotor friendly, eliminating the grabbing and locking up that keeps so many drivers and race cars from performing at their peak. You want to go deep to gain those precious fractions of a second before you need to brake, and Carbotech brakes let you do just that. In every turn, of every autocross run.

Carbotech AX6 replaces the well-regarded Panther Plus compound that was so successful. AX6 is engineered specifically for Autocross applications.

  • High-torque brake compound delivering reliable and consistent performance over a very wide operating temperature range (150 °F to 1250 °F +)
  • Advanced compound matrix provides excellent initial bite
  • High coefficient of friction with very progressive brake modulation and release characteristics
  • High fade resistance
  • Rotor friendly at all temperatures
  • Excellent cold stopping power
  • Non-corrosive dust

Excellent choice for autocross, novice track day drivers, and beginner high-performance driver education (HPDE) drivers on street driven cars using street tires - eliminating the need to change brake pads at the track

Carbotech AX6 performance pads have gained tremendous popularity with SCCA Prosolo and Solo2 competitors for their fantastic bite, and predictable release and modulation. 

Many drivers use the AX6 for street driving as well, although Carbotech doesn't recommend street driving with AX6 due to the potentially elevated levels of dust and noise. 

NOTE: AX6 is NOT a race compound, and should not be used as such. AX6 shouldn't be used by any intermediate or advanced track day drivers, and should not be used with R-compound tires (racing tires). Cars in excess of 300 Hp or 3,000 lbs should not use AX6 for any track use.

Made in the USA

*Due to dimensional differences in pad shapes we do not suggest Carbotech performance pads with Performance Friction Direct Drive rotors for any application.
