(Clover, SC) October 22, 2012- Performance Friction brake pads become the topic of choice
for the Porsche and Endurance Racing World on rennlist.com . A debate over PFC and Pagid pads had an obvious winner—PFC.
"PFC > Pagid," wrote a forum member.
Endurance and short track drivers discussed the differences in driveability, pad life, and brake fade between the PFC 08 and the Pagid RS29.
The PFC 08 compound is one of PFC's newest compounds and has gained immediate favor in Endurance Sportscar and GT racing due to its performance in applications where smooth initial bite is a must.
"PFC control and release are better in my mind than the Pagid," said Seth Thomas—a professional driver and coach for Bimmerworld. "PFC 08's have great initial bite, but not harsh enough to trigger the ABS. The release is a nice, smooth release. This is the same on the pad from day one to the end of the product."
The compound has a slight friction rise with temperature, excellent release and modulation, and very low disc wear. The 08 wears the longest of all current PFC pads and easily matches wear of the other competitors with much higher bite.
"PFC's no bedding required pad," writes Peter from South Florida, "always [have] good pedal, even with solid rotors. You are missing out [by using] Pagids. I promise. Try at least one set of PFC."
The trusted PFC 08 compound proves its worth with the many supporters. The pads provide optimal tire utilization with consistent pedal, smooth release, and more driveability. With increased corner speeds, the driver gets quicker lap ties and faster transition times.
"The PFC 08's are really that much better with everything," writes forum member Mike.
PFC makes outstanding products with NO COMPROMISESTM, and are hands down a number one choice in the race world.
08 Recommended Applications:
Endurance Sportscar and GT
Porsche Club Racing
BMW Club Racing
Track Day and Driver Education events
GS / S T Series GrandAm Road Racing
Due to 08’s excellent wear, bite and control, the 08 is a excellent choice with cars equipped with ABS.
