Racing Brake Brake Pads XT970 One Piece, High Friction Track Z06/C6, Grand Sport Front 06-13
The XT Series compounds were developed to handle the toughest track braking conditions. All of our XT series can deliver consistent brake torque, are excellent in modulation and highly resistant to wear, friendly to rotors, brake dust is easy to clean, and brake control.
XT910: Medium initial bite, medium to high friction and brake torque.
XT960: Medium initial bite, high friction and brake torque.
XT970: High initial bite, Extremely high friction and brake torque.
Since these pads are formulated for track/high temperature use, using them on the street may result some unfavorable situations such as brake squeal, dirty wheels, less brake friction at cold temperatures, and excessive rotor wear. For street driving, we recommended that you use our ET series pads.
All brake pads are recommended to be bedded-in properly according to the proper break-in procedureto assure optimal performance.
Break Pad Performance
The overall brake pad performance can be affected by the rotor material and its surface finish, calipers, and brake bias.
Brake Pad ReplacementImportant to know!
Since the brake pad consists of the friction material, insulator, bonding agent, and a steel plate, the pads must be replaced when the "non-steel" material wears down to approximately the same thickness as the steel back plate or to the grooves in the pad (if applicable). However, since the groove depth varies from one pad manufacturer to another, we do not recommend running the pad thinner than 4mm (0.16"). This minimum wear thickness is a checkpoint for pad replacement to prevent severe damage from occuring to the brake system, including rotors and calipers.
Change your brake pads more quickly than the OE multiple padlet design with RB's Corvette Z06 one-piece pads! RB's pads are made differently from the competition. We have added additional friction material to the pad. This additional pad-to-rotor contact improves stopping and helps to reduce brake fade - another innovation from RB.
