RENAULT MEGANE MK3 - CL BRAKES RC8 RACE BRAKE PADS - RS-250, TROPHY, RS-265 (4066T16-RC8)
The Renault Megane Mk3 Renaultsports are becoming a popular and potent trackday vehicle. With large brakes as standard they are very effective but the CL Brakes (Carbone Lorraine) race pads are a great upgrade to cope with the high temperatures the brakes will inevitably need to cope with. The CL Brakes pads will work at all temperatures and will give a far superior braking response. These race brake pads are in their element for high performance driving.
These CL Brakes Brake Pads are suitable for the Renault Megane Mk3 2.0 RS models with the 2.0 Turbo engines. This includes the Megane 250 RS, 265 RS and Megane Trophy.For trackday cars driven to the circuit we recommend starting with RC5+ front and rear. If you want more bite then the RC6 Endurance pad works well for road/track. Dedicated trackday and race Meganes use the RC6 or RC6E up front with the RC5+ for wet or slippery conditions, RC6 for dry. The Carbone Lorraine pads work best with a plain disc such as the Renault OEM Discs. CL Brakes also make an excellent brake fluid which has a high boiling point.
CL Brakes Pad Compounds
CL Brakes RC5+
CL Brakes RC5+ has a moderate friction level (friction coefficient of μ=0.4) making it a versatile race brake pad and trackday compound. The RC5+ should be used in low grip situations such as if the car is running road tyres, or event conditions are mud, gravel, snow and water. This compound gives low noise, low dust and disc wear and works well in low temperature conditions.
CL Brakes RC6
CL Brakes RC6 is a wide ranging motorsport compound and is used in all disciplines - from rallying to circuit. The RC6 compound has a friction coefficient of μ=0.5 and gives a stiffer pedal and better modulation when compared to organic braking compounds.
CL Brakes RC6E
CL Brakes RC6E otherwise known as RC6 Endurance pads; offer a similar braking coefficient to the RC6 (μ=0.46) but has an extremely low wear rate making it ideal for endurance racing or for teams wanting a low cost braking solution over a race season.
CL Brakes RC8
CL Brakes RC8 has the highest friction level in the CL Brakes range.(μ=0.6). The RC8 compound is used in top level motorsport such as WTCC, WRC and NASCAR. The -R version is a grooved pad to give extra cooling to the braking system.
Please note we can supply alternative pad types and all other Carbone Lorraine products if required.
