Through our partnership with Cobalt Friction Racing Brakes we now have available the premier performance brake pad for the 2020+ C8 Corvettte. These pads are designed for the Z51 brake package and use Cobalt's exclusive Carbon Ceramic material. Their rapid prototyping allowed us to have THE FIRST true race pad for the C8 Corvette.
All Cobalt Friction XR-Series racing brake pads feature true 100% "no bedding required" to achieve full frictional performance, unlike most traditional race pads which require very specific bedding instructions for proper function. Unmatched friction vs. temperature stability and consistency. Additionally, Cobalt Friction materials exhibit unmatched disc finish and life as compared to any competing racing friction.
These are the same pads that we have tested on our own C8 Corvette with consistent and impressive brake performance. Both the XR1 and XR2 compounds have proven to be great performers for this platform. If you are ready to experience race quality braking in your production car, then look no further.
We do suggest using the same pad compound at the front and rear of the car currently. XR1’s should only be used on those running a full race tire front and rear on the car as it can quickly over power the DOT street tire level of grip.
