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 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 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.
For the 991, they are available in the following 3 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.
13 Compound - High Bite - Sprint Racing - 13 Compound is a new generation of ultimate high biteu2014high friction... 13 compounds were developed from 01 compound with increased bite, modulation, with superior disc conditioning and release characteristics for exceptional control. Ultra-smooth and great for tracks with high grip or high downforce cars. This material won its first race on its first outingu2014it's that good. It is the ultimate combination of high bite and infinite control. Typical applications; Ideal use for sprint and severe applications. Heavy, fast cars or high downforce cars where bite at first 3rd of the stop is desired. 13's wear is par with PFC's legendary 01 compound. Will operate at higher temperatures if called too as .13 has a very high threshold for fade resistance. .13 has shown of all the high bite, high torque pads in the market to have one of the lowest taper wear in a properly designed race caliper.
331 Compound - Medium Initial Bite - Endurance Racing / Track Days - 331 is the next generation of PFC endurance material. Improved control with ABS, and gentle on discs. The 331 Carbon Metallic compound has been developed with a higher initial bite than PFC's renowned 08 endurance compound. The 331 has improved release, and continues to offer exceptional control and feel. It boasts a low wear rate and exceptional disc conditioning. Applications: Endurance pad for the front axle with ABS, GT3, GT4, Touring car, and Trackday. Perfect for Clubsport and Cup models with ABS.
