Zip Corvette recommends C7 Carbotech Brake Pads for 2014 Corvette owners who want the greatest performance from their Corvette’s factory engineered brake system.
Carbotech Engineering C7 Corvette high-performance brake pads are built using a proprietary 3-stage chemical bonding and riveting process. All of the company’s track–proven friction compounds work in a wide range of temperatures, offer low wear and are rotor friendly.
Zip carries a wide selection of C7 Carbotech options, allowing you to fine tune your Corvette’s braking needs based on your specific application and use:
The Carbotech™ 1521™ C7 Corvette Brake Pads are the high performance street compound. The 1521™ compound is known for its release and modulation, along with unmatched rotor friendliness. 1521™ is also a very low dusting and low noise compound with an excellent initial bite. This compound’s excellent linear torque production provides incredible braking force without ABS intervention. Carbotech™ 1521™ operating range starts out at ambient and goes up to 800°F (426°C+). 1521™ is suitable for ALL street driven Corvettes. Carbotech™ 1521™ is NOT recommended for any track use.
The Carbotech™ AX6™ C7 Corvette Brake Pads are specifically engineered for Autocross applications. A high torque brake compound delivering reliable and consistent performance over a very wide operating temperature range of 50°F to 1100°F + (10°C to 593°C+). The advanced compound matrix provides an excellent initial bite, high coefficient of friction at lower temperatures along with very progressive brake modulation and release characteristics. AX6™ offers high fade resistance, rotor friendliness at all temperatures and excellent cold stopping power. As a result, AX6™ is an excellent choice for Autocross and has gained tremendous popularity with SCCA Prosolo/Solo2 competitors for its outstanding all around performance. Many drivers use the AX6™ for street driving as well, even though Carbotech™ doesn’t recommend street driving with AX6™ due to possible elevated levels of dust and noise. AX6™ is NOT recommended as race compounds in most applications.
When Carbotech™ unleashed the XP10™ to the general public it was an instant success. XP10™ immediately gathered multiple regional, divisional, and national championships. The Carbotech XP10™ C7 Corvette Brake Pads have a very strong initial bite friction material with a coefficient of friction and rotor friendliness unmatched in the industry. Fade resistance is in excess of 1650°F (898°C). Due to the high level of friction and bite, this material is recommended for cars weighing around 2,900lbs or less. XP10™ still maintains the highly praised release, excellent modulation and rotor friendliness that have made all Carbotech™ compounds so successful. Carbotech™ XP10™ is NOT recommended as a daily-driven street pad due to possible elevated levels of dust and noise.
The latest iteration of the highly successful XP™ series of compounds, XP20™ is a step up from the XP16™ compound. With an extremely aggressive initial bite, the most linear torque curve to date and excellent fade resistance, the Carbotech XP20™ C7 Corvette Brake Pads lead the XP™ series line of compounds from Carbotech™. XP20™ has a temperature range of 275°F to 2000°F+ (135°C to 1093°C+). Carbotech™ XP20™ maintains our tradition of having the outstanding release and modulation that has made all other Carbotech™ compounds so successful. The XP20™, as with other Carbotech™ compounds, is very rotor friendly. Carbotech™ XP20™ is NOT recommended for use as a daily driven street pad due to possible elevated levels of dust and noise.
The Carbotech XP8 is a high torque brake compound with a wide operating temperature range of 200°F-1350°F+ (93°C to 732°C+). Carbotech™ XP8™ C7 Corvette Brake Pads are the first of the racing compounds. Good initial bite at race temperatures, high coefficient of friction, excellent modulation and release characteristics. Extremely high fade resistance and very rotor friendly. Excellent as a front brake pad for lighter applications, weighing around 2,400lbs or less. Perfect for track day use with any tire and can still be driven safely to and from the track. Carbotech™ does NOT recommended XP8™ as a daily driven street pad due to elevated levels of dust and noise.
Whatever your driving needs, get the best from your C7 Corvette with brake pads from Carbotech.
