Ferodo Racing DS2500 Front Brake Pad Set - Fiesta ST180
DS2500 is amongst the foremost high performance track day pads in the business. It is also suitable for some light duty front and many rear pure race applications. It offers excellent refinement for such a high performance pad.
The main characteristics of DS2500 are:
Track day & light race use for all vehicle types
Road style refinement but with race material ability to withstand heat with respect to life and µ
Average friction coefficient of 0.42 over working temperature range of 20°-500°C
ISO16949 & 14001 Certified Production
All Ferodo Racing brake pads are manufactured to the highest international ISO quality standards at Federal Mogul’s dedicated manufacturing facility in Italy. Every brake pad has a total of 26 separate quality controls during its manufacture which guarantees a repeatable and consistent product within and between every batch.
All of the pad back-plates are manufactured from high tensile steel meaning minimum distortion when subjected to the high clamping forces common in motorsport use. Pads are manufactured to maintain high tolerances on the pad and back-plate dimensions including : flatness , parallelism and overall thickness. This results in a rapid and uniform transmission of pressure from the brake system to the pads.
Unlike many competitive products most Ferodo Racing brake pads incorporate a thermal under-layer between the backing-plate and the friction material. This reduces the brake caliper’s operating temperature by up to 80 deg C and significantly reduces the risk of boiling the brake fluid which causes a “spongy” feeling in the pedal.
Unlike many competitive products Ferodo pads are kind on brake discs. Ferodo pads are developed to optimize both the pad and disc life. Our philosophy is not to increase pad life with the casualty of excessive disc wear.
All Ferodo Racing brake pads are engineered to perform with a relatively constant coefficient of friction (mu) across a wide range of temperatures , pressures and vehicle speeds. This results in a consistent brake feel for the driver meaning that the braking torque is a linear response to pedal pressure.
