Friction materials (brake pads) are easily one of the most critical and trivialized component of a brake system.
However, the constant evolution of overall car performance, increased use of in-car data acquisition and analysis systems, improved tire technology and chassis grip (aero, suspension upgrades, etc.) has greatly increased the overall demand on the OE or Performance braking systems.
The development of racing friction materials has now evolved as well to meet the growing technical demands of gentleman and professional racers in markets worldwide.
Over the years, CounterSpace Garage has placed a high emphasis on the overall testing of various friction materials with different applications since overall brake performance is a key development point for quicker lap times and car performance.
The collection of data has allowed CounterSpace Garage to give relevant developmental feedback to suppliers to develop more specialized friction materials.
These newer and more advanced friction materials are now supplied as "CSG SPEC" brake pads in various HPDE, Club and professional racing markets.
With extensive development on multiple motorsport applications (Examples: GT Racing, Time Attack, HPDE, One make races, etc.), CSG Spec brake pads have been further developed to meet the specific demands of customers where "off the shelf" products were often inadequate.
To ensure that CSG Spec products offered the most consistent performance for each application, a combination of lab and field testing was done to simulate the conditions seen in the real world.
The result is a line of sprint & endurance friction materials which offer peak brake performance, pedal stability, braking control, high fade resistance and low wear compared to competitor offerings in the market.
