The racing brake pad in pursuit of high braking power with proportional brake control
  • Consistent operating friction level regardless of condition; high-temperature, high-powered, heavy weight, and heavy load driving.
  • Braking power directly proportional to brake pedal pressure
  • Extremely high brake control even with superior initial bite
  • Consistently rigid brake pedal feel even after repeated laps around the circuit
  • Perfect match with slick racing tires, competition-use tires, and high performance radial tires.
  • The official brake pad of the Volkswagen Scirocco Cup China Series.
Friction Materials Carbon Semi Metal
Effective Temperature Range 200~900°C
Initial bite (µ) 0.51
Average µ 0.40~0.45

 

RAtype
Is it better to change the brake pads and brake discs at the same time?
RAtype
  • The above chart represents evaluation values of RA in 100 phases in comparison with R01 of the test model. Values of R01 show 50.
  • Above values are calculated under test condition.
Ideal for use in amateur races from short sprint races to endurance races.
  • SUGO
  • EURO CUP
  • OPTION
  • ETCC
Superior performance of "RA-type" shown in test data
■ The brake power tests at different temperatures (µ)

Decelaration (G) = 0.5G fixed.
The friction co-efficiency is measured at different temperatures with decelarating from 240km/h to 140km/h.

■ The brake power tests at different speeds (µ)

Decelaration (G) = 0.5G, temperature = 500°C fixed
The friction co-efficiency is measured at different speeds.

Going to the extremes of brake control

The DIXCEL R series brake pads are for ultra high performance use on both the race circuit and street. The brake pads were developed to offer consistent brake feel even in extreme conditions.

The R series brake pads (Including Specom-α and Specom-β) are race proven in the Super GT, Super Taikyu, and various other races with outstanding results.

DIXCEL brake pads are highly regarded even overseas, outside of Japan. Starting in 2010, DIXCEL RA-type pads are the official brake pads of the Volkswagen Scirocco Cup China series.

The Specom-β brake pads were used on the Nissan GT-R R35 by the winners of the 57th Macau Grand Prix Road Sport Challenge, Team TOP RACING of Hong Kong. The brake pads cannot just have improved initial bite; they must have great brake feel with precise control.

Various brake compounds were tested and developed on the race circuit by drivers like our test driver, Tetsuya Tanaka, and other top drivers in different categories of racing.

After rigorous testing and actual race use, the best compounds were chosen after analyzing various driver feedback and data results.

The importance of 1/10th of a second

DIXCEL R series brake pads are the choice for people who want to go faster.

  • R series brake pads are approved for street-use. PLEASE NOTE: Compared to the Z-type brake pads, the R series brake pads could possibly have increases in brake dust, noise, and decrease in disc life depending on the application.
  • The R series brake pads should be used only for sprint races. For endurance racing and professional racing, DIXCEL recommends the Specom-α and Specom-β brake pad
