Ferodo DS3000 Old AP Caliper
Competition Brake Pads
The high performance race pads for race and rally applications
DS3000 is Ferodo’s premium racing compound and has set the standard across circuit racing and the World Rally Championship. DS3000 has contributed to countless wins and podium positions in the WRC, BTCC, STW and is now experiencing major success in Indycar and NASCAR applications.
The main characteristics of the DS3000 compound are:
- reduced bedding in time (approximately 50% quicker than other materials)
- extremely high friction level (0,62 coefficient of friction) at any temperature or speed
- higher initial bite
- predictability, in all conditions, when braking into the corner because of the flat friction curve
- less off brake between the brake pedal and throttleÿ
When using this material with light inertia racing cars, as a general rule, it is necessary to apply less brake pedal pressure than you would normally expect. This will avoid over-braking and the generation of excessive heat in the braking system and discs.
WARNING: DS3000 is NOT suitable for road use.
DS3000 provides outstanding braking performance under all conditions. Unlike many materials, the performance characteristics of DS3000 provide predictable braking and pedal feel. From low speeds to high speeds, from a cold start to a scorching 750ø C, DS3000 maintains a constant high co-efficient of friction (0.6) which guarantees exceptional fade resistance and consistent bite.
This is critical. Every driver must be confident that whatever the speed or operating temperature, he will stop quickly and consistently every time the brakes are applied, and confident that braking performance is directly related to pedal pressure, without fade and without exception.
