Replacement pads for OEM calipers

Although we always recommend using a dedicated race pad for the track, the DS2500 is one of the best hybrid street/track pads on the market. It features the moderately high bite and solid fade resistance of a track pad, with the relatively low dust and noise levels of a street pad. When used as a street pad, it can produce some squeal on certain vehicle platforms. If you drive aggressively on the street, do some canyon runs, autocross, and maybe some light track duty on street tires, the DS2500 is tough to beat.

Key Features:

  • Fade Resistance and Max Operating Temperature:Despite its excellent manners, the DS2500 has superior fade resistance vs. any street or sport pad on the market. They are extremely popular for someone who wants to use their car as a multi-purpose vehicle. If you have a heavy, powerful car and want to run race tires on the track, you may find the upper reach of their temperature range. That said, we?ve had cars like the C7 Z06 run the DS2500 in our AP Racing brake kit on street tires at VIR without fade. Many of our AP Racing by Essex Brake Kit customers can get away with running the DS2500 on the track with street tires because our systems run considerably cooler than an OEM brake package.
  • Durability / Wear Rate (Miles per Pad Swap):The DS2500 will not last as long as the DS3.12 or DS1.11 when consistently tracked at high temperatures on heavier, more powerful cars, particularly when run on race tires.
  • Feel, Feedback, Stability, and Torque Curve (Not Ranked in Any Order):DS2500 has a considerably lower mu than the DS3.12 and DS1.11 at all temperatures. They are a better match to street tires than they are with racing tires. While their performance is stable, their torque curve declines more with temperature than the other compounds. Despite the lower torque curve, they are going to feel far better than a pure street pad at any temperature experienced on a racetrack.
  • Manners (Cold Bite, Noise, Dust, Disc Wear):Despite technically being a race pad, the DS2500 has very good manners, and are by far the best in this area out of the Ferodo DS line of pads. They have more than ample cold bite and as long as they are bedded-in properly, the 2500 typically doesn?t make any noise. When they do, it is a small squeak or chirp on the tail end of a stop. They are no harsher on discs than typical street pads. They have a moderate amount of dust that would be similar to the typical OEM pad on a European car, but the dust is not harsh and won?t cause any problems with paint finish, etc.
  • Price:Given its incredible versatility and unique capability as a dual-purpose pad, DS2500 is one of the best bargains in enthusiast brake pads today. It mates manners similar to an aggressive street pad with the fade resistance and track capability of a race pad, at a price resembling many OEM replacement pads. If you assign any type of cost to the number of pad swaps the DS2500 can save you, its remarkable value becomes apparent.

  • When used on track by 3,000+ lbs. cars with high horsepower and R Compound tires, DS2500 pad wear rates tend to be considerably higher vs. Ferodo Racing's other compounds. If you're looking for extended wear rates under those conditions, Essex would recommend the Ferodo DS1.11 or DS3.12.
