Performance Friction race pads have been the pad of choice for the BimmerWorld IMSA Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge Team since we tested our first set back in our World Challenge days. The fact is, Performance Friction race pads take home more championships per year than any other pad brand on the market, and those same pads are available to you.
12 Compound is a new generation endurance material. This pad provides medium friction that offers precise control to last a full 24 hour race, and even better disc conditioning than the 08 predecessor. 12 Compound offers improvements in durability, wear characteristics, and modulation over the already fantastic 08 Compound. For many applications, 12 will replace the 08 compound.
- Smooth initial bite
- Excellent release and modulation
- Exceptional wear rates
- Low disk wear
- Ideal for endurance and extended track day use
- Approved pad for BMW M235i/M240i Racing brakes
NOTE on Street Use - These are race and track-use pads. While they can be driven on the street, and many of our customers choose to drive to and from events with them, they are designed for ultimate track performance and their street manners may not meet everyone's demands. If you are looking for a street-worthy race pad, these 12 compounds have the lowest wear rates and noise of the PFC race pads.
