Application for vendor status has been sent! here's the first GB!
Established in 1991, Frixa burst into the marketplace with an innovative new method on making brake pads. They were awarded the President's and Minister of Commerce's awards, and have been granted a patent in Germany, the USA, Japan, and Korea. They are GS Mark, GQ Mark, QS9000, and ISO9001 certified. Frixa is a Hankook company, and work closely with them in developing and producing these brake pads.
The testing procedures done to these brake pads have been enormous. In addition to various testing machines, they've also done real world/circuit testing. Frixa brakes are designed to maintain reliable and consistent performance through various driving conditions. With their unique blend of friction material (aramid fibers and potassium hextitanate as the main materials, with a little bit of steel) they minimize brake noise, wheel dust, rotor wear, and low brake fade at high temperatures. In addition they have kept it environmentally friendly by not using asbestos, chrome, mercury, lead, or cadmium. All brakes are tested at Hankook's facilities, then sent off to Akebono's facilities in Japan for testing (one of the biggest manufacturers of brakes in the world), then off to the streets and race tracks.
Recently they have wanted to break into the USA market, so I was contacted. They've given me a special pricing in order to promote the brakes. Those who run tuning shops and want to purchase larger amounts at a time, special price breaks can be given. Please contacct me for more information.

these brake pads have been used on many test vehicles - from street to race. RStars's brake pads are relabelled Frixa pads. Frixa is also the primary brake pad sponsor for Korea's DDGT one make genesis coupe race.
additionally, you'll be hard pressed to find any other manufacturer who will release their brake pad test information. this is how much we believe in this pad!
Red: subjected temperature
Green: stock brembos
Blue: Street pads
Fuschia: Race pads
this is friction, noise, pad temperature test results for teh street pads.
PS. for those who run on higher speed courses that aren't as technical, i also have 1 set of race pads that i can sell for a severely discounted price (lower than the pricing above!)
i tried looking for brake pad data for other companies and nothing as detailed as what i can provide.
ferodo ds2500 race pads are 0.5, like mine. costs 197 for a pair
carbotech panther p+ are .54, again about the same. costs 124 for a pair
ebc greenstuff is .46, a bit lower, but similar. costs $89
ebc redstuff is .33, much lower than my street pads, also costs $89
i couldn't find what hp+ and hps ratings are at, except 20-40% better than stock or somehting like that...kinda useless if you don't know where they're starting from. i did find that they are good for up to 450 degrees and 350 degrees, while these pads are approved (both street and track, though obviously street won't stand up as well to constant high temps) to 600 degrees.
