All Round Performance Pad
This listing is for a pair of Front Dixcel Z-Type brake pads for :
- Honda Civic Type R – (FK8)
Many drivers are choosing brake pads that offer optimal performance on the street and race circuit. The demand is for a brake pad that is usually used on the street and can be occasionally used at the race circuit.Today, there is a wide range of demands for sport brake pads.
These drivers are using high performance radial tires not the racing tires the frequent race circuit drivers use.
If racing brake pads are used, it may not provide the optimal temperature range, decrease disc life, and unable to provide the right balance between tire grip and brake performance.
The development concept of the Z-type brake pad is a high performance brake pad for street-use.
The above chart represents evaluation values of our product in 100 phases in comparison with genuine pads of the test model. Values of genuine pads show 50. Above values are calculated under test condition. Values of Durability and Disc life are subject to change by continuous use under low temperature (generally less than 150 degrees Celsius). Values of Anti-Noise and Anti-Dust are calculated after a thermal history goes (not under brand-new condition).
For the testing, cars like Subaru Impreza WRX, Mitsubishi Lancer EVO, BMW M3, and Porsche Cayman S were used with high performance radial tires. The pads went through extended road trials on the street followed by rigorous testing on the race circuit.
On the street, the brake pads were able to offer consistent brake feel even at low temperatures, and achieved low brake noise and longer disc life. On the race circuit, there was no decrease in braking power, and offered superior stopping power.
The DIXCEL Z-type is for users who want race-circuit quality brake pads without having to sacrifice regular street-use performance.
The sport brake pad you can use for regular street-use
This brake pad was developed as an answer to such demands.
Race circuit testing was done mainly at Okayama International Race Circuit and Fuji Speedway. To best replicate street-use, road testing was done with street legal cars. The cars had little modification and were fitted with high performance radial tires.
