Set of rear (Left and Right) G-Loc pads for 2008 G37 Coupe with standard trim level calipers (not for Sport edition G37 with Akebono calipers)
Brakes™ uses proprietary carbon, ceramic, and metallic compound formulations
that provide for great modulation and release characteristics. Additionally,
the use of less carbon and iron yields the most rotor/disk friendly compounds
on the market and provides an insulative buffer that limits heat transfer to
the brake caliper and fluid. Better control during trail braking and a broad
thermal operational range make G-LOC Brakes™ an excellent choice for high
performance braking applications from street driven Auto X cars to high
horsepower road race cars.
G-LOC™ GS-1 is our high performance street compound. GS-1 produces very
little dust and very little noise, while maintaining excellent initial bite and
torque for street use. GS-1 has been unmatched in the industry for
disc/rotor friendliness as well as its longevity. This compounds excellent
performance on the street provides incredible braking force without ABS
intervention. G-LOC™ GS-1 operating range starts at ambient up to 800°F
(426°C). GS-1 is suitable for ALL street cars, tow vehicle, fleet vehicle, and
armored vehicles. G-LOC™ GS-1 is NOT recommended for ANY track use.
R6 has been specifically engineered for Autocross applications. An ultra-high
cold torque compound delivering consistent performance from dead cold (0°F) up
to 1000°F + (0°C to 537°C+). The advanced compound matrix provides an excellent
initial bite, high coefficient of friction at lower temperatures along with
very progressive brake modulation and release characteristics. The R6™ compound
is widely used for street use as well, but this compound will more than likely
make noise on the street. G-LOC™ doesn’t recommend street driving on
with R6 due to possible elevated levels of dust and noise. R6 is NOT
recommended for road racing (closed circuit) use in most applications.
high torque brake compound with a wide operating temperature range of
200°F-1250°F+ (93°C to 676°C+). G-LOC™ R8 is the first of our extensive lineup
of racing compounds. Good initial bite along with excellent modulation and
release characteristics. Extremely high fade resistance and very rotor
friendly. Perfect for track day use with any tire and can still be driven
safely to and from the track. G-LOC™ does NOT recommended R8 for daily use on
the street due to elevated levels of dust and noise. G-LOC™ R8 is a popular
compound for open wheel type of race cars. R8 is also used on most
Formula SAE team cars, along with shifter karts, dirt bikes, ATV’s, and even
R10 has a much strong initial bite and higher coefficient of friction than R8.
R10 still maintains our smooth release, excellent modulation and rotor
friendliness that have been engineered into all previous G-LOC™
compounds. The R10 compound disc/rotor friendliness will lead the
industry. R10™ broad temperature range and fade resistance is in excess of
1475°F (186°F /85°C – 801°C). G-LOC™ does NOT recommended R10 for daily use on
the street due to elevated levels of dust and noise.
the bar even higher is the R12 compound with an excellent initial bite, high
and consistent torque, and outstanding fade resistance over and above the R10.
R12 has a temperature range of 200°F to 1860°F (93°C to 1015°C). The
G-LOC™ R12 continues our excellent release and modulation that has been
engineered into all previous G-LOC™ compounds. The R12 is slightly more
disc/rotor aggressive than R10 but more disc/rotor friendly compared to our
competition. G-LOC™ does NOT recommended R12 for daily use on the street due to
elevated levels of dust and noise.
R14 compound was engineered for endurance racing with lighter weight, lower
horsepower cars in mind. R14 has solid initial bite, a little less
modulation than the R10 or R12. R14 has great fade resistance with a
temperature range of 210°F to 1400°F (98°C to 760°C). R14 is as rotor
friendly as our R12 compound. G-LOC™ does NOT recommended R14 for daily
use on the street due to elevated levels of dust and noise.
R16 is an extremely aggressive initial bite, linear torque curve and excellent
fade resistance compound from our lineup of R-Series compounds. The R16
is a natural progression of the highly successful R-Series line of compounds
from G-LOC™. R16 has a temperature range of 255°F to 2000°F (123°C to
1093°C). G-LOC™ R16 maintains our philosophy of modulation and
release that has been the foundation of all other G-LOC™ R-Series
compounds. G-LOC™ does NOT recommended R16 for daily use on the street
due to elevated levels of dust and noise and the amount of heat needed to work
The R18 is the
pinnacle compound of the R-Series compounds engineered by G-LOC™. R18 is
based on the same successful principals and fundamentals that exist in all
other G-LOC™ R-Series formulations. R18 has more initial bite, overall bite,
and even more controllable torque. The R18 offers the absolute most
linear torque curve we have ever created. The thermal characteristics and
coefficient of friction are of the highest offered by anyone in the braking
industry. This revolutionary compound will lead the way in all major
forms of racing (professionally and grassroots). R18 has a temperature
range of 610°F to 2100°F+ (321°C to 1149°C+). G-LOC™ does NOT recommended
R18 for daily use on the street due to elevated levels of dust and noise and
the amount of heat needed to work properly.
Nextrev recommends upgrading to G37 Coupe Sport factory Akebono brake calipers for racing applications. Non-Akebono calipers can, however, suffice for auto X and novvice HPDE track events.
