Carbotech CT356-AX6 AX6 Brake Pads
The AX6 takes the place of the Panther Plus
compound that was so successful. AX6 was specifically
engineered for Autocross applications. A high torque brake compound
delivering reliable and consistent performance over a very wide
operating temperature range (150F to 1250F +).
Advanced compound matrix provides an excellent initial bite,
high coefficient of friction, and very progressive brake modulation
and release characteristics. AX6 offers high fade
resistance, rotor friendliness at all temperatures, excellent cold
stopping power, and non corrosive dust. As a result,
AX6 is an excellent choice for Autocross & novice
track day drivers and beginner high performance driver education
(HPDE) drivers on street driven cars using street
tires eliminating the need to change brake pads at the track.
AX6 has gained tremendous popularity with
SCCA Prosolo/Solo2 competitors for its fantastic bite,
release & modulation. Many drivers use the AX6 for
street driving as well, even though Carbotech doesnt recommend
street driving with AX6 due to possible elevated
levels of dust and noise.
AX6 is NOT a race compound, and should
not be used as such. AX6 shouldnt be used by any
intermediate or advanced track day drivers, and should not be used
with R compound tires (racing tires). Cars in excess of 300hp
and/or 3,000lbs should not use AX6 for any track
For Drum applications turn to the Carbotech 913
Kelated Metallic. A D.O.T.-approved high-performance compound for
brake shoes on high performance street vehicles and race cars.
Carbotech Kelated Metallic (CKM) achieves a very high
coefficient of friction (approx. 0.48 to 0.50) by taking advantage
of a chemical reaction within the friction mass, which creates a
tri-alloy metallic film at the liner/drum interface when subjected
to heat and pressure. Designed to overcome the shortcomings of
other liner materials, CKM is a very versatile and
provides excellent braking performance in a wide variety of
applications. Excellent wear characteristics and a very high
resistance to lock-up under hard braking. Optimal recommended
operating temperature range is from ambient to 750F.
