Carbone Lorraine RC8 brake pads excel in dedicated trackday and race applications. Pad life, dust, and rotor wear are moderate on these race pads, which makes them stand out from some of the more aggressive organic race pads.
The Carbone Lorraine RC8 brake pad is made from Sintered Metal. The Carbone Lorraine RC8 should be used in dedicated trackday and race car applications. They can be used in almost every type of race car and provides a high and stable friction level.
RC8 compound brake pads; like the rest of the Carbone Lorraine range, do not contain any organic compounds. The uncompressible material gives a stiffer pedal and a better brake modulation. This It can be used in front and/or rear combined with the RC6 and RC8.
The Carbone Lorraine RC8 brake pad compound has a very high average friction co-efficient of μ=0.6 and are very effective from cold, giving excellent initial bite yet will still not deteriorate with braking temperatures. The disc life is increased because no materials transfer.
In addition to track use, many auto cross racers will find these pads as an excellent alternative to organic pads since the sintered pads are not nearly as sensitive to temperature.
