Performance Friction NSX Brake System - JGTC NSX Brakes for your car

7 July 2009
Performance Friction - Forged Monobloc (Multi-pad Caliper) Brake System - FOR THE NSX!:

Performance Friction, the world-renown brake pad and brake system manufacturer is one of the most successful brake companies in the world that no one has heard about (outside of the Motorsports Industry) has made a street application for the NSX.


New from Performance Friction - the new line of Z-Rated brake kits specifically for your NSX! Without question, this brake system is the best on the market and that conclusion comes from years of racing domination, not the marketing desk.

Also, unlike other brands whose street kits have only the nametag in common with their top level racing components, these PFC parts are the real deal that win Championships across the board of top-level professional series Champ Car, ALMS, Rolex, World Challenge, Grand-Am Koni, WTCC, Australian V8 Supercars, etc, etc...

Working with FXMD, Performance Friction (PFC) has taken the data from tire size, vehicle weight distribution, vehicle weight, center of gravity, brake rotor size and thickness, pad swept area, calculated brake forces, from a stock NSX, the testing of the FX750 Unlimited Time Attack car, and the JGTC/Super-GT NSX to come up with an engineered brake system with the best balance for the NSX. This is not just a "Big Brake Kit". PFC went through all of the steps designing this system for the NSX just like they would for a JGTC, ALMS, Daytona Prototype, Australian V8 Supercar, IndyCar, Atlantic, NASCAR, Formula 3 Car, or any other type of racing vehicle they design brake systems for.

THAT's the difference. PFC dosn't use off-the shelf parts slapped together and call it a "BBK" but rather engineer a proper brake system for optimum performance.



-The 4-piston Z31 caliper used in the NSX kit is a Forged Monobloc design
-FEA-created design that optimizes weight while keeping the caliper rigid.
-This unique caliper uses four pads per caliper - one per piston for an incredible bite and the ability to mix pad selection for mixed-use cars.

Piston Size Front: 36.50/41.00
Piston Size Rear: 32.00/32.00


-PFC's newest V2 Direct Drive Rotors.
-Made from a precision casting
-All external surfaces are machined to tolerances of 0.004", including the OD of the vein area that most manufacturers leave rough-cast.
-**This is the only rotor that are mechanically, thermally, and dynamically balanced - meaning you will never warp them because they are balanced in all situations, all temperatures.

Rotor Size Front: 14" (355mm x 32mm) -largest and widest rotor in an NSX system.
Rotor Size Rear: 14" (355mm x 32mm) - largest and widest rotor in an NSX system.

Brake Bias: 60% front / 40% rear

MSRP: $10,000

Actual Price: Because only a handful were made, Email me for more info but the price is $7,995

Heard of Performance Friction now?
Any weight savings over the stock 97+ set up and if how much? Thanks!
I've been a huge fan of PFC products for many years!
I recently attained some CAD files of the Performance Friction brake system for the NSX. Here's for all of you who will geek-out like me to this kind of stuff. Enjoy:




The revolutionary and superior PFC "V2" rotor-hat interface used on everything from this NSX kit to the JGTC NSX, ALMS, Champcar, Grand-Am, and more...
Who cares? When can get PFC06s for the OEM rear caliper? :tongue:

Will they be available by spring?

Will PFC ever make a rotor that we can use to replace the rotors on the Brembo GT - ie 328mm x 28?

PFC 06 compound are more likely for the OEM front caliper first.

Call them and ask for James, Alex, or Nina and see. The more people inquiring the better :) www.PerformanceFriction.com
I think it's officially $3,995 per axle set, but sold as a front & rear package only.

It's the same price as the famed Brembo "Indy" system while being 1" larger rotors, and a far more advanced (JGTC/Champcar/ALMS) design.

Here are some measurements that Liftnot took when weighing the 14" PFC brakes:

OEM Frt Caliper w/ brackets = 12.4lbs.
PFC Frt Caliper - 7 lbs. + bracket assembly = 8.4lbs. + pads = 10.4lbs - 2lbs

OEM Frt Disk - 13 lbs
PFC Frt Disc - 14.8 lbs. +1.8lbs

Rear Caliper w/ brackets = 11.2 lbs.
PFC Rear Caliper - 7lbs.(no pads) + bracket assembly = 8.2lbs. + pads = 10.2lbs - 1lb

OEM Rear Disk - 13 lbs
PFC Rear Disk - 14.6 lbs +1.6lbs

The net is a 0.4lb gain per side = 0.8lb total.
Still a great looking kit...
Looks great and the calipers appear to be thin enough there should be lots of wheel options, I'm guessing 18" wheels or larger to clear 355mm rotors.
