EBC Racing’s fully-floating 2-piece brake discs combined with our full race RP-X pads represents the ultimate braking upgrade for performance vehicles driven hard on track or for dedicated race cars.
RP-X has a very stable friction coefficient of 0.55 mu up to and beyond 850C, making it an excellent performer for even the most demanding vehicle applications.
RP-X also has a high friction level from cold, requiring no warmup to achieve maximum braking effect which makes this material well suited for sprint race and hill climb events.
Although RPX is not R90 homologated for use on the public roads in EU member states, the fact this material possesses excellent cold performance means RPX can be safely used for driving to/from motorsport events (where local laws permit).
EBC Racing does however emphasise that RPX has been developed for peak ontrack performance, meaning higher levels of brake dust and brake noise should be expected.
Compared to EBC Racing’s other track material RP1, RPX has a 25% increase in friction coefficient across its working temperature range with a much more ‘positive’ initial bite.
EBC Racings 2pc fully floating brake discs are engineered from the finest materials without compromise, resulting in one of the highest quality 2pc brake discs available on today’s marketplace. These discs are equally at home on the road or at the race track.
Outer friction rings are cast from high-carbon G3500 disc alloy, giving excellent wear properties and crack resistance even after heavy on track use.
EBC’s patented stainless steel SD Drive bobbins allow the braking ring to float freely and independently of the centre bell, reducing stresses and eliminating the chance of warping, whilst each bobbin location features an anti-rattle clip for totally silent operation. All discs feature 48 curved vanes and are handed to each side of the car allowing effective heat dissipation.
EBC 2pc discs often offer a weight saving over OEM parts, helping to reduce rotational unsprung mass that has a positive effect on driving dynamics. Additionally, when the disc eventually becomes worn, the hub can be retained replacing only the outer friction ring which reduces long-term operating costs.
