" As the G Lock pads kept wearing and becoming more "intimate" with the rotor, they were much better. Front stretch braking between the 3&4 was too soon but I'm pretty conservative. I could have easily started at the 3 marker and had room to spare. After almost 300 miles and a string of 2:11s, I finally put together a 2:10.5 with a virtual best of 2:09.4. I will be in touch soon about the alignment."
G-LOC Brakes™ was created by racers with the sole intention of providing the highest level of performance friction materials and truly outstanding customer service in the market. Our extreme wide range of compounds and pads will cover anything and everything from a go-kart to a Miata, to a Camaro, to a Porsche, to vintage race cars and even armored vehicles all around the world. We offer brake pads for all aftermarket big brake kits (BBK) regardless of manufacturer. We have the capabilities to custom manufacture brake friction solutions for your application. G-LOC™ supplies high performance brake pads for daily drivers, occasional track day enthusiasts, HPDE regulars, autocrossers, club racers, professional racers, armored vehicles, law enforcement vehicles, emergency vehicles, and even heavy duty military vehicles.
All JPSS G-Loc brake pads are ordered pre-burnished, pre-bedded. They are burnished at G-Loc under controlled conditions to thoroughly and evenly heat and season the pad material. When you open the box, remove the pads and install them. Bleed your brakes. Your brakes are now ready for the track.
No more searching for an open road to repeatedly cycle the brake 50 to 15 MPH and then hope you have enough road left to cool them off. No more wondering if you got enough heat in them, or heated them too fast, or didn't heat them enough. You KNOW they were burnished professionally and done right. That is what you expect from JPSS and exactly what we try to deliver to our clients every day.
G-LOC compounds to work extremely well with carbon-ceramic rotors/discs. We have selected R10 for the front and R8 for the rear.
Front Pads -- The R10 has a much stronger initial bite and higher coefficient of friction than R8. R10 still maintains our smooth release, excellent modulation and rotor friendliness that have been engineered into all previous G-LOC™ compounds. The R10 compound disc/rotor friendliness will lead the industry. R10™ broad temperature range and fade resistance is in excess of 1475°F (186°F /85°C – 801°C). G-LOC™ does NOT recommended R10 for daily use on the street due to elevated levels of dust and noise.
Rear Pads -- R8 is a high torque brake compound with a wide operating temperature range of 200°F-1250°F+ (93°C to 676°C+). G-LOC™ R8 is the first of our extensive lineup of racing compounds. Good initial bite along with excellent modulation and release characteristics, extremely high fade resistance and very rotor friendly. Perfect for track day use with any tire and can still be driven safely to and from the track. G-LOC™ does NOT recommend R8 for daily use on the street due to elevated levels of dust and noise. G-LOC™ R8 is a popular compound for open wheel type of race cars. R8 is also used on most Formula SAE team cars, along with shifter karts, dirt bikes, ATV’s, and even Mountain bikes.
Front Pads -- The R18 is the pinnacle compound of the R-Series compounds engineered by G-LOC™. R18 is based on the same successful principals and fundamentals that exist in all other G-LOC™ R-Series formulations. R18 has more initial bite, overall bite, and even more controllable torque. The R18 offers the absolute most linear torque curve we have ever created. The thermal characteristics and coefficient of friction are of the highest offered by anyone in the braking industry. This revolutionary compound will lead the way in all major forms of racing (professionally and grassroots). R18 has a temperature range of 610°F to 2100°F+ (321°C to 1149°C+). G-LOC™ does NOT recommended R20 for daily use on the street due to elevated levels of dust and noise and the amount of heat needed to work properly.
Rear Pads -- The R10 has a much strong initial bite and higher coefficient of friction than R8. R10 still maintains our smooth release, excellent modulation and rotor friendliness that have been engineered into all previous G-LOC™ compounds. The R10 compound disc/rotor friendliness will lead the industry. R10™ broad temperature range and fade resistance is in excess of 1475°F (186°F /85°C – 801°C). G-LOC™ does NOT recommended R10 for daily use on the street due to elevated levels of dust and noise.
All G-LOC™ compounds are created in a controlled environment where everything from air temp, humidity, water temp, and weight (of each ingredient used) have exact specifications that must be met when a compound batch is created. This process is checked no less than 3 times up to 5 times during this process by multiple highly skilled personnel. The end result is a superior and consistent product for the end user.
