BMW E30 M3 Pagid Track and Race Brake Pads

BMW E30 M3 Pagid Track and Race Brake Pads Pagid has long been associated with motorsports - winning endurance races around the world and working closely with factory and privateer teams to supply the very best in racing friction materials. You can find Pagid Racing engineers at all of the major sports car and open wheel races working alongside team engineers on fine-tuning their products for the respective classes. To this day, Pagid remains a very dynamic company, constantly evolving with the ever-changing motorsport environment.

Pagid Race Pad Compounds:
Orange RS 4-4. A mild track pad that is often used as a rear compound to manage brake balance (typically with Yellow front pads). It has very good modulation and release over a medium friction level. It has a moderate wear rate and very gentle on rotors. Orange has good fade resistance up to 560°C (1,050°F). It has a mild bite which makes it a very good pad for beginners or low horsepower cars using DOT race tires where too much brake can lead to lock-up or slowing momentum. Commonly found in Touring Car, time trial, Showroom Stock, and F3.

RS19 Yellow. Developed in partnership with BMW Motorsport, the RS19 is a favorite of test drivers on the Nürburgring. It's a step up on the aggressive scale from the Orange. RS19 has very good modulation and release thanks to a medium friction compound. It has moderate bite with excellent wear levels so it makes for a good beginner pad or a pad you can drive to the track with. Yellow pads are often used in extended endurance races (sometimes without pad changes). It has good fade resistance up to 600°C (1,00°F). The combination of friction value, fading stability and low wear rates on pads and rotors is unmatched. A multiple winner of Daytona 24h, Le Mans 24h, Sebring 12h, Spa 24 h, and Nürburgring 24h.

Yellow RS29. An evolution of the RS19 endurance pad designed for more advanced drivers. This compound combines the outstanding wear rate of the RS19 with a slightly higher coefficient of friction and initial bite. RS29 also features improved hot fade resistance over the RS19. In addition to the endurance racing, this pad will also be found in GT and VLN classes and Touring Cars (including our own E46 World Challenge cars).

Yellow RSL1. The latest in the Yellow line takes all of the RS29 characteristics and adds a bit more aggressive behavior. Friction levels go up for more initial bite and better fade resistance. Modulation and release stays close to RS29 levels. Pad and rotor wear is a little more than on the previous Yellows but still within reasonable levels and the RSL1 is still considered an extended endurance pad. Its development stemming from GT classes at Le Mans and Nürburgring.

Black RS14. The RS14 is a very aggressive pad, trading low wear characteristics for outright torque and performance. It has a high friction level for an aggressive initial bite and better fade resistance compared to the RS19/RS29. Modulation and release are slightly down compared to the Yellow compound but still comfortable for most drivers. Because of its aggressive compound, more wear to the rotors and the pad itself is expected. RS14 has excellent fade resistance up to 650°C (1,200°F). It's quick reaction and high torque make it a favorite for very fast cars with downforce such as prototypes, Indycar, formula, Super GT, and some Touring Cars.

Red RST. Pagid's newest sprint racing pad was developed for racing cars achieving very high average speeds with short braking distances and functional aero. The RST pads feature very high friction levels for the quickest bite and highest fade resistance than any other Pagid pad. RST pads are broken into four levels (RST1-RST4) depending on bite and release characteristics. RST pads will trade low wear for torque output and faster response. RST1 being the most aggressive in the range and RST4 being the least aggressive (commonly used only as a rear compound). These were developed based on the needs of race engineers in World Challenge, Daytona Prototype, and GTLM where functional aero meant high grip in the corners and smaller braking zones.

Since Pagid pads tend to "out-gas" we recommend using these pads with a new gas-slotted or cross-drilled rotor for the best performance. Pagid brake pads are not compatible with previously used rotors, especially if used with a carbon or Kevlar based race pad.
