my guys are doing great things.
Brembo is going to be out of Indy car PFC to replace them.


IndyCar set to change brake supplier in 2017

Quote:
Performance Friction has become clear favorite to replace Brembo as spec brake supplier for IndyCar from next year.

Motorsport.com has learned that Chip Ganassi Racing, Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing and Andretti Autosport tried brakes from alternative suppliers – along with a revised Brembo setup – in the Road America test in June. As a result of this test, Performance Friction Corporation has emerged as a favorite.

The brake evaluation which was blind – as in the drivers weren't made aware beforehand which manufacturers' brakes they were testing – followed long-standing complaints about heat consistency issues with Brembo’s current package.

Bill Pappas, VP of competition and race engineering, told Motorsport.com: “Nothing has been finalized yet. We tested three manufacturers – Brembo obviously, Performance Friction, and a third company which… I don’t think there’s a need to bring them up.”

TOM'S Team Claims Japanese F3 Championship,
The 2016 Japanese F3 Championship completed it's last round at SUGO last week with Yamashita and the ZENT TOM's F312 taking home the championship title.

Trying to get a head start on the rest of the pack, Yamashita, sitting on the pole, took his rival on the outside to complete the opening lap in first place.
Increasing his lead, he pulled out a 0.820 second margin at the restart on lap six. From there, he gained an impressive 2.943 second lead over Mardenborough.

The TOM's team has won 7 Japanese F3 championships to date.

Hmmm. So I need to get another 98 to 148 Miatas to trade in. I'll get right on it.

On a more thread related subject: Any chance of PF adding a 1.8l rear brake pad to their lineup any time soon? Or maybe even a sports brake rear pad?
I'm running 11" rotors with Dynalites in the front and 1.6l caliper and rotor in the rear. Love my PF pads, but the balance is severely off methinks. And AFAIK there are no brackets to run the 1.6l caliper on the larger rotors.
My brother's car has sports brakes all around. The balance is better, but I don't really like the Hawk pads.

INDYCAR Names Performance Friction Corporation Exclusive Brake Supplier Beginning in 2017



INDIANAPOLIS (September 2, 2016) - INDYCAR announced today a partnership agreement with Performance Friction Corporation that will make the company the official brake supplier of the Verizon IndyCar Series. The multiyear agreement makes PFC the exclusive supplier of brake system components to each entry competing in the Verizon IndyCar Series beginning in 2017.

"Earlier this season the majority of our teams tested the PFC brake package and the feedback we received was overwhelmingly positive. PFC has a long history of building outstanding performance products that we expect to be a great benefit to the competition in the Verizon IndyCar Series," said Jay Frye, INDYCAR president of competition and operations. "We're excited to kick off this partnership with PFC and appreciate all their efforts and commitment to INDYCAR."

INDYCAR began using lightweight carbon brakes at all tracks in the Verizon IndyCar Series in 2012, in conjunction with introduction of the Dallara IR-12 chassis that is still in use today.

"Don Burgoon, PFC Brakes founder and visionary, truly understood the advantages and benefits of PFC's continuous wound carbon over the competition," said Darrick Dong, PFC's Director of Motorsports. "Open-wheel racing is in PFC's DNA. It is with a great deal of pride and optimism that PFC is awarded official brake supplier for the Verizon IndyCar Series for many years to come."

"INDYCAR has always been close to our hearts at PFC," said Nina Burgoon, President of PFC. "We are excited and honored that this long-awaited partnership is now a reality. PFC is committed to providing the best-performing package for the car and is thankful for the opportunity INDYCAR has given us to exceed their expectations."

PFC has a successful motorsports heritage and has been a longtime brake supplier in stock car and sports car competition. Previously, the company was an Indy car supplier in the Champ Car World Series and currently is the brake supplier to all three levels of the Mazda Road to Indy development series sanctioned by INDYCAR.

What does PFC have for the ND? I go to your website and I can't select a 2016 Miata, so my only options are "1.6" and "1.8"

I am trying to decide what brakes to get for the ND. V8R has a front kit that drops 14 pounds and uses 4 piston Wilwood calipers. So I could get PFC pads (what compound?) for those up front and I found PFC 11 pads for the stock rears.

Or Flyin Miata has a full caliper kit that drops 18 pounds and puts Powerlite calipers at all four corners, but I don't think PFC makes Powerlite pads...

Do you mean the only options you have currently? I don't know if PFC does exclusive deals, but Goodwin Racing is selling lots of PFC pads for the ND.

Those are custom machined for us from a larger PFC pad, made to order as noted on our site. It's not cheap but it's the only way to make them possible until PFC (hopefully) releases those shapes down the road. Don't hold your breath though, the sales numbers aren't remotely there to justify them doing it yet.
