PFC Z-Rated High-Performance Street Pads for PFC Z45 BBK Caliper.
Part #: 7818.104.22.168
PFC Brakes are a leader in high-performance braking technology. Manufactured right here in the U.S., PFC has been the go-to choice for many top racing teams around the world. They have worked closely with BMW & Porsche on the development of their pad compounds and PFC Brakes are even standard fitment on Porsche 991 GT3 Cup cars.
We run PFC brakes on our cars for their consistent performance lap-after-lap and their low-wear rates. These things do not overheat either. While you may pay a little bit more for these pads upfront compared to say a Hawk pad, these will last twice as long if not more in many applications. In addition to decreased wear on the pad itself, these pads are also a lot less harsh on rotors. The savings really start to add up compared to inferior brands. In any braking application, you are generally limited by the grip in your tires, these pads will provide all of the stopping power you need.
PFC's can also be used on the street when driving from to and from the track. Like any race pad, they will not have as much bite it the cold, but they will work fine in a pinch. Sometimes they squeak, sometimes they don't, but it generally isn't too bad when they do.
11 Compound is a new generation sprint and medium distance friction - the ultimate in control, with superior disc conditioning. 11 compounds were developed from the 01 compound with improved bite, modulation, and release characteristics. It is ultra smooth and developed to reduce wheel locking at the end of a stop. Brake with confidence - brake with ultimate control and modulation. For many applications, 11 will replace the venerable 01 compound.
Typical applications; Ideal use for medium-low grip venues where control and modulation are at a premium. Also racing venues where ABS systems are used, .11 can be used in a large spectrum of temperature ranges. 11's wear is par with PFC's legendary 01 compound. Virtually zero taper wear when raced in a properly designed race caliper.
Z-Rated - High Performance Street - This compound has been developed for fast road/track day applications. It provides more stopping power and increased fade resistance over the std OE materials but retains the good qualities of the road pad i.e., low dusting and noise along with low wear rate. Typical Applications; This compound can be used in OE calipers or aftermarket brake kits in applications where an increase in performance is required over the standard OE friction material. Generally recommended as predominately a street pad.
