PFC Brakes is 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 Porsche on the development of their pad compounds and PFC Brakes are standard fitment on 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 in 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.
For the 718 GT4, they are available in the following compounds (application dependent):
11 Compound - Strong Initial Bite - Sprint Racing - is a sprint and medium distance friction providing the ultimate in control, with superior disc conditioning. It is ultra smooth and developed to reduce wheel locking at the end of a stop. Typical Applications; Ideal for use at medium-low grip venues where control and modulation are at a premium. 11's wear is par with PFC's legendary 01 compound showing virtually zero taper wear when raced in a properly designed race caliper.
332 Compound - Smooth Bite - Endurance Racing/Track Days -332 has been formulated with lower bite and torque for rear applications. With smooth release, the 332 offers excellent stability and control. The 332 has been designed to work with ABS applications and has exceptionally low wear rates. Applications: Endurance pad specifically designed for rear axle on ABS cars. Perfect for Clubsport and Cup models with ABS.
