Brake Pad Set, Front, Audi TT RS, Cobalt Track Compound
These are the very same brake pads we run in our very own 034Motorsport Audi TT RS. They are extremely well-suited for the stock calipers, and we highly recommend using them in conjunction with the Cobalt XR3 Rear Brake Pad Set.
Cobalt XR2 is a high torque material featuring an initial bite that is 8-10% lower than XR1, but with the same controlled transition to a linear, rising torque curve. Improved modulation, threshold control, and release characteristics make the XR2 particularly well-suited for chassis and tire combinations which do not respond well to excessive initial brake energy, but still require a high average torque level.
Similarly, vehicles normally equipped with XR1 can move directly to the XR2 when low-grip conditions present themselves unexpectedly (e.g. qualifying in the dry, but rain/wet conditions on race day) without sacrificing or experiencing a change in pedal feel, consistency, or brake capacity.
As with all Cobalt Friction XR-Series Carbon-Ceramic friction materials, the XR2 does not require any bedding¹, and will deliver 100% consistent performance within 1-2 laps, while still maintaining a superior, uniform disc finish.
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 TT RS (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%
