Civic Type R FK2 Front Brake Discs and EBC Brake Pads RPX Track Pads. Made 100% in EBC Brakes' Bristol, UK pad factory. Stainless steel backing plates (reduced heat conduction, no paint). Backplates feature Nucap® NRS® hook pad retention system. Excellent pad life with moderate disc life.
NOT R90 approved for road use in European markets. Made with Nucap NRS hooks on backplates to totally eliminate the chance of pad debond. Designed for vehicles driven hard on track, RP-XT possesses a high friction level of 0.55 between 0 - 750°C (Ambient - 1400°F) and achieves a 100% brake effect from cold. This makes RP-XT an excellent choice for sprint racing or hill climb events, where full brake performance is essential without requiring any'warming up', but also makes RP-XT well suited to any type of circuit use where a high initial bite and powerful brake response is desirable.
EBC Racing would like to emphasise that it is not a case of RP-XT being'better' than RP-1T, rather it is'different' and designed to provide a distinctly different response characteristic (more aggressive bite) which some drivers may prefer. For a detailed comparison between the 2 materials, please read the following article where we aim to help you make an informed choice on which material is likely to work best for your application and individual driving style. HALO Dimpled and Grooved Sport Brake Discs.These are a firm favourite for many of our customers with the classic drilled and grooved appearance, but without the pitfalls of having a through drilled disc or more commonly described as cross drilled disc. Cross drilled discs allow channelling of hot gasses into the tunnel section of the brake discs in aid to assist the cooling of the discs, however for most brake discs this has a serious flaw resulting in hot spot surrounding the holes often resulting in cracking originating from the holes. Halo dimpled and grooved brake discs overcome this problem and offer additional reliability over cross drilled discs, the dimples work in much of the same way allow gasses to sink into the small pockets and immediately escaping once the pocket has passed the pad surface, the grooves also carry out the same task but also help to de-glaze your brake pads and assist with parallel brake pad wear. As our stock is cycled the discs supplied may or may not have a anti-corrosion coating around the hub area, some discs may even be Geomet coated depending on the specific application, if this is important to you please check with us before purchasing.
HALO brake discs perform on the road and on the track but as you can imagine the temperatures achieved on the track are usually much higher than seen under normal road use, if using on the track it's important that extra care is taken during fitment and post fitment. Ensure the hubs are cleaned before fitment. Ensure there is no excess free play in wheel bearings. Ensure the brake discs are running true before use by measuring run-out. Ensure the brake caliper pistons and slides are move freely checking slides for wear.Ensure tightening torques are adhered too. After fitment and road-testing re-check the wheel torque, this is especially important when using on track use after several laps, as the heat absorbed by the brake discs will transmit through to the wheel hub and wheel, this causes your components to expand and may lead to reduced wheel tightening torque. This will lead to brake vibrations when braking and may permanently damage your brake discs and ruin your track day enjoyment.
