EBC RP-1 Racing Front Pads - RS4 B7
The slightly lower friction level of RP-1™ allows the brake pedal to be worked harder, which is particularly beneficial to cars that are overserved from the factory (for example Mk7 VW Golf GTI, BMW M cars, Audi RS models, etc).
On inherently overserved vehicles, RP-1™ somewhat negates the effect of the overserved brake system setup, resulting in a more progressive and smooth response when driven on the track.
In some modern vehicles, it can sometimes feel as if all the braking happens in the first inch of pedal travel. Whilst this sharp sensation gives the impression that the car has very ‘good’ brakes to the average driver pootling down to the shops, experienced track/race drivers know that a hair-trigger brake response is undesirable, verging on totally unacceptable for smooth driving at the limit. A modest amount of brake pedal travel is actually beneficial for performance driving and this is exactly what RP-1™ enables, encouraging the driver to find the limit under braking whilst also enabling trail-braking. RP-1™ is particularly suitable for non-ABS assisted vehicles, where a smooth response is essential to avoid locking a wheel under braking.
