Friction Summary: 0.32-0.36µ

Temperature Range: 0-600°C

Low-metallic Carbon

Rear Race Pad for RWD

Entry level trackday

Good modulation

Low-Medium friction

CIRCO S83 is a performance street & entry level track day compound also used extensively in rear axle competition configurations where friction repeatability is important along with a reduction in bite towards the end of a stop. This helps to reduce the likelihood of rear locking when the rear axle load is reduced as weight moves forward. This also helps with those needing to ‘trail-brake’ to achieve the desired turn-in. Typically used in front engine-rear drive cars but also suitable for other FWD where rear axle grip is sufficient. 

Typical applications: Rear pads for RWD circuit racing or rally, Club level small cars front or rear

What you get:
1 part number = 1 set of pads. In most cases this is 4 pads per box. If your calipers take more than 2 pads per caliper (E.g Audi RS4), the part number you buy will include all the pads you need to service the axle set of calipers. Also included is bedding instructions to help you get the most out of your new pads.
