The baseline setups above result from many years of customer feedback and/or in-house vehicle testing with various combinations of Cobalt Friction XR-Series materials and will yield a very high level of balanced braking performance. While optimal brake compound selection, as with most aspects of vehicle setup, is subject to driver preference and driving style, we feel that these baseline setups are a very good starting point, especially if you are "new" to the Cobalt Friction product line. Please call us toll-free at (877) 562-9237 or e-mail tech@cobaltfriction.com if you require additional vehicle setup assistance.

(1) The purpose of this chart is to assist in selecting the proper Cobalt Friction XR-Series material if you are already using another brand product.
(2) The above conversion chart only relates the relative friction/torque level of Cobalt Friction materials to other brand products.
(3) In the majority of cases, Cobalt XR-Series materials will yield a min. 50% improvement in disc finish/life as compared to any other product of similar friction level.
(4) For example, if you currently use PFC 01 and 97 in the front and rear, respectively, converting to the Cobalt XR2 and XR3 will maintain similar balance.
