These are the very same brake pads we run in our very own 034Motorsport Audi TTRS. They are extremely well-suited for the stock calipers, and we highly recommend using them in conjunction with the Cobalt XR2 Front Brake Pad Set.
Cobalt XR3 is a versatile, medium-high torque material with a solid initial bite and a slightly rising torque curve. Unsurpassed cold performance, torque stability, consistency, and modulation/release for this level of friction make the XR3 an ideal compound for moderate to lower inertia vehicles.
As a testament to its well-rounded performance, the Cobalt XR3 material set more poles and won more races in the SCCA Pro Racing Playboy Mazda MX-5 Cup Series than all other brake pad manufacturers combined in the first year of open, non-spec brake pad selection. Recommended for rear-axle use on vehicles over 2800lbs to deliver optimal straight-line braking performance, stability, and controlled rotation while trailbraking.
Cobalt XR-Series Features:
- No Bedding Required to Achieve Full Frictional Performance¹
- Unmatched Disc Finish with a Minimum 50% Improvement in Disc Life²
- Highest Torque vs. Initial Disc Temperature Stability and Consistency
- Highest Repeatability vs. Number of Heat Cycles of any Racing Brake Pad
- 2010 - 2013 Audi TTRS (8J)
¹ Full torque potential of all Cobalt materials will be realized within 1-2 laps. However, proper on-vehicle or inertia-dyno bedding will yield an 8-10% improvement in wear rates.
² As compared to any competing material with torque levels within ±10%
Note: Cobalt Friction Brake Pads are motorsport pads, intended for track use only. As such, they do not include wear sensors or anti-rattle springs.
