DS3.12 Released in a limited number of shapes for 2019, the DS3.12 is the latest evolution in Ferodo’s incredible DS line. Every new sports car today has more of everything: More horsepower, more aero, a higher curb weight, and stickier tires. These attributes all place greater demands on the vehicle’s brake system.The Ferodo DS3.12 is the modern pad compound designed from the start to explicitly to handle those demands. The Ferodo Racing DS3.12 pad compound is proving to be a tremendous asset for our Porsche clients participating in club racing, HPDE, and time trials. The DS3.12 shows the flattest torque curve across the broadest temperature range we’ve ever tested. That means your brake pedal is going to feel exactly the same heading into every turn of every lap, providing tremendous consistency and repeatability. The DS3.12 has a higher mu than Ferodo’s other compounds, so not as much leg pressure is required to initiate the desired response. It is also unfadable, showing no drop in performance at any temp your brakes will ever see. In dyno testing, the DS3.12 has shown superior wear rates to the other Ferodo compounds, while remaining kind to the discs. We believe the DS3.12 will become the gold standard to which other race compounds will be compared.
