RS7-1 has a very stable coefficient of friction level of 0.35 from cold to 500°c, with a very linear in-stop behavior with no ramping up, or drop off in coefficient of friction during a stop. The characteristics of this compound are ideally suited for the rear axle of front wheel drive cars, but work well also on rear wheel drive and 4 wheel drive cars. The RS7 was used on Turner Motorsport E92 M3 racecars when drivers complained of the rear wheels locking up too easily. A change in the pad compound meant the ABS could modulate the brakes better and prevent full lock-up.
Due to new automated production processes and use of fewer and less complex raw ingredients RS7-1 is priced at a lower level than regular RS compounds such as RS4-2. The pads also come complete with OEM accessories such as piston clips, spring clips and also edge chamfers where applicable.
