--RELEASE-- Camaro ZL1 Racing pads from LG Motorsports and Cobalt



--RELEASE--

LG Motorsports is proud to bring you Cobalt Racing Technology pads for your Camaro ZL1

If you are going to be tracking your new Camaro ZL1 you will need a better pad on the car than the OEM equipment. For those tracks hard on brakes as well as experienced drivers are going to find the factory brake pads are just not up to the task of repeated hard use of the brake pedal.

We at LG Motorsports have chosen the best for our own race cars with Cobalt Friction Technologies (Cobalt Racing Brakes) brake pads. We have been using Cobalt pads on our own race cars since 2006 and have not used anything else on them since! Easy on rotors, great initial bite, and awesome wear rates make them the best pads on the market today.

We have fitments for the SS, ZL1, OEM Corvette brakes as well as almost any other aftermarket BBK kit on the market today. Talk to your sales rep for details on what compounds would be right for your setup.

Are they high met or low met linings? Any quick information on them as far as temperature etc.? I am thinking of going to Carbotechs since those I have experience with but heard about these from a few guys, have you guys ever used Carbotechs?

Every person I have changed over to Cobalt from Carbotech pads as never EVER asked for CarboTech's again.

Temp and torque curves change depending on compound...

I'm looking to upgrade from my Hawk HP-Plus pads that I swap out for racing. My friend runs the Cobalts on his Z06 and told me to check them out.

What Colbalt pad combo is recommended for a suspension modded 2010 SS for mixed auto-x and track use. I'd like to go a bit agressive without excessive wear on the rotors.

Can you please PM me pricing also?

Thanks,
Tom

I would run XR1's on the front and XR3's on the rear....that is what we had on Lou's ZL1 when we went to COTA (see the testing video).


Some of the great things about Cobalt is the great wear rates, bite when they are cold and excellent pedal modulation. Hell of a pad, I don't think you would ever go back to Hawks again for track work.

PM coming with pricing!

Thanks Anthony,

I do a lot more auto-x than track, will this setup be good?

I noticed that your website didn't have the XR3 pads listed for the Gen5 Camaro application.

Still working on more updates to the site for the added pads


Yes, again that is one of the great things about Cobalts is their ability to grip when they are cold more so than a lot of other pads.

The sooner you can get the website updated, the sooner I can order them.

How is it that these don't fade on the track if their temp ratings are only 50-1000 according to your website?

Hell the Carbotech XP-8 temp range is 200°F-1350°F+ and I use these on the rear and XP-12 on the front with a temp range of 250°F to 2000°F+. Not to mention these are much more expensive than the CarboTech's. Even if you spend the extra money to have them pre-bedded.

So how are these better??
