The most compromised GT500 brake component is the pad, only because it must withstand both street and track driving. SVT friction specialist Rob Eaton tested endless pad compounds from various suppliers, but ended up with the same Ferodo material used in the '12 Shelby.

The rear pad is from Performance Friction.
