Brake Pad Set, Rear, 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 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 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%
