ND miata Pads Incoming from PFC!

Available compounds.

PFC 11. The daddy and the #1 choice of professional race teams. Well over 200 professional level championships won (nascar,Imsa, PWC ect..) . Soft bite to avoid flat spotting and helps keep the vehicle stable under initial braking,
Dead straight consistent Tq output, less than 4% change over 1200*. Professional drivers love this.
Easy modulation helps you nail that trail braking moment.
Recommended for tires that range in QUTG from 200-50.

PFC13 The high torq option!
The new compound offering from PFC for those with mega sticky tires, and big downforce!
Soft bite to avoid flat spotting and helps keep the vehicle stable under initial braking,
High Torque for slowing the biggest of race tires. or for easing pedal effort with manual brakes.
Easy modulation helps you nail that trail braking moment.
Recommended for tires that range in QUTG from 90 and less, OR for manual brakes with qutg180 or less.

Joey from WRL mentioned he was in talks with with a few companies to replace HAWK for contingency....Hoping one of them is PFC! Sound like there are A LOT of racers from multiple organizations that have not received any pay out from HAWK for 2017 results. I was actually thinking of trying some DTC 60's for the SM this season since HAWK owes me a few hundred "bucks", but looks like I'll be staying with my trusty PFC 97's!

We can hope. The Love has been coming back to PFC in waves.

The 1.8L Endurance compounds are here!!






PFC 08 compound. Used extensively as an endurance compound in Grand Am, ALMS, and IMSA now available only from OG racing for the Miata platform. These 08's share the soft bite, consistent torq output and easy modulation loved in the 11 but with more life!
Recommended tires. Anything in the 245 wide categories, QUTG must be 200 or lower. Rival s, Bridgestone re71-r, MAxxis VR-1, Rc-1, Hoosier, Pirelli P Zero. Get yours today!

Will there ever be a 7754 pad shape option that is on the 11-12mm side of thickness instead of 16mm?

I just bought the set of 7752 to modify for dynopro (after having incorrectly purchased the 7754 years ago) and it was quite the experience to grind to clear a bridge bolt let alone the e-clip.

Not that big a deal, but it makes me want to buy a used Bridgeport

that little spring is a pain. I'm still on the hunt for a 2 spring option that doesn't cross over the top.

Ordered a set of the new 08 enduro compound and will be running them this weekend in the 14-Hour ChampCar race at Charlotte Speedway. Basically a '99 PTE car on 225 RS4s...~2350 lbs, 125ish whp. Standard 1.8 brakes with some ducting.

Will report back on how they do and how we like them.

might want to tape up the ducting for Charlotte. those long straights (lots of cooling), with a dragging brake zone (high heat) are rotor killers (thermal shock).
good luck guys!

They've added a bus stop on the back straight thereby adding a pretty decent braking zone and breaking up the extremely long full throttle "straight".

Would you still recommend taping up the ducts with the added bus stop?

Also, we run $22 rotors. My only concern for the rotors is that they last 14 hours. If I'm not worried about adding thermal shock stress cycles to the rotors because they'll be tossed after the race, are we better off having brake cooling to improve pad life?

What's the minimum working temperature for the 08 compound? I guess I'd be more worried about not getting enough heat in the brakes since we're fairly low on HP and we're running only 225 RS4s. We've had no issue getting GLoc R12s up to temp and working well with the same setup at other tracks.

Thanks for your input.

I don't have much experience at charlottes road track. I would still tape them up at least halfway. This should kill a good amount of aero drag for your high-speed stuff.
Min temp is around 200*f I'm not worried about the pads working. I'm worried about the $22 rotor starting to break up from repeated cold-hot-cold-hot-cold-hot-cold-hot-cold-hot-cold-hot-cold-hot-cold-hot for 14 hours. the $22 rotors have a tendency to flake off the surface material when thermally shocked too much.
