Ferodo brake pads for use in race cars date all the way back to 1926 where they were successfully used in a land speed record run of 169 mph.
Today Ferodo racing brake pads are used frequently in the most popular forms of Motorsports both on the track and off the track in cars, karts and motorcycles, with the manufacturing of pads kept in-house to ensure premium quality and consistent braking to provide users with the best possible experience.
The DS Range of pads have a coding system which tells the user which compound of pad they are, the part numbers usually begin FCP followed by numbers and then suffix, the range of suffix’s consist of the following, a typical pad number would be for example FCP1307H and they would be identified as the DS2500 compound.
- H = DS2500
- C = 4003
- R = DS3000
- W = DS11.1
- Z = DSUNO
Ferodo DS2500 are amongst the most popular brake pad for track days and light race use on the front axle, they are also used in pure race vehicles on the rear axle, Average friction coefficient of 0.42 over working temperature range of 20°-500°C.
Ferodo 4003 has been developed specifically for lighter race cars such as Formula 3 and Formula Ford / Renault, the compound has very short bed-in times but has excellent bite with low drag the pad has average friction coefficient 0.46 over the working temperature range of 200°-450°C.
Ferodo DS3000 is a heavy duty all-round material with short bedding in periods with an average friction coefficient 0.48 over the working temperature range of 200°-650°C used in multiple applications including Group N, Touring Cars, Rally Cars and hill climb.
Ferodo DS11.1 Ceramic technology belonging to the chemical family of Siloxane which unlike other compounds these do not decompose at high temperatures and keep on working at the most extreme temperatures encountered in Motorsport braking systems. The pads have an average friction coefficient 0.46 over the working temperature range of 200°-700°C, they are very long life and kind to the discs and can be found on Touring Cars, GT Cars and Single Seat race cars.
Ferodo DSUNO is Ferodo’s latest in heavy duty race materials for use in Formula, GT and Touring Cars and Rally, this compound has replaced the DS2.11 and has reduced wheel lock when compared to other pads of this friction which is average friction coefficient 0.48 over the working temperature range of 200°-700°C according to Ferodo this is the ultimate feel good pad, which are kind to the brake discs and have a long life.
