DS 3000 is the Ferodo Racing compound that has set the braking standard from 1998.
It has contributed to countless wins and podium positions in many Touring car, rally & GT championships around the world.
The main characteristics are::
heavy duty all-round material choice
short bedding time
multiple applications including touring car, rally, Group N, single seat, hill-climb
average friction coefficient 0.48 over working temperature range of 200°-650°C
DS 3000 pads are not recommended for street use and may only be ued in combination with high-carbon sports brake discs.
No homologation, not street legal.
The price is for the complete axle (4 pads).

Important information: bedding of race pads
The aim is to bring the pads to full race temperatures, but slowly (too quick bedding results in glazing). This is done by a series of laps where full speeds may be attained but lighter braking pressures are used (i.e. the driver applies the brakes earlier). It is important that the pads are allowed to cool after the bedding process before racing. Ideally the pads will arrive at temperatures in excess of 500°C during the bedding. Smoking pads during the cool-down are not a cause for concern.
Perform at least 15 trial brake applications, initially with reduced pressures (50% of the normal that might be used for that same brake application were it to occur under race conditions) building up to full decelerations after the 15 applications. To shorten the procedure applications can be made along the straights as well as at corners.
On completion of the trial applications, return to the pit lane. Inspect the surface of the brake pads from the two wheels that have been working the hardest. There should be evidence of contact over the full pad area, but without glazing. The pads are now ready to race. Whilst it is recommended that pads are inspected after bedding, if time does not allow this and paragraph 1 has been carried out appropriately, so long as a short period of time has elapsed to allow the brake system to cool (ideally to below 100°C – this might take in excess of five minutes), the pads will be ready to race.
