G-LOC is a new North Carolina based brake pad company who have taken their cumulative experience in racing brake pads to the next level by offering racers the absolute best brake pad in the industry. G-LOC raises the stakes in quality, materials, and design over their competition, and we are proud to be able to offer them to you. More information on their uses and specs can be found in our Tech Center under the G-LOC Brakes Compounds page
We have made choosing your Spec Miata brakes easy for you with some special packages of G-LOC brake pads. Descriptions of these pads can be found below:
If you race Spec Miata, brakes are one of the few ways to find an advantage in a class where every little thing makes the difference between seconds in lap times. If you haven't tried G-Loc brake pads yet, you owe it to yourself to get a set and see if you can use them to improve your lap times over your current brake setup. In addition to the improved wear characteristics, you will find a different experience with G-Loc brakes. If you are a heavy trail-braker, a pad with a lower initial bite like the G-Loc is going to be the route you want to take. The initial bite characteristics of the G-Loc vs. Hawk are much smoother. Where a Hawk will bite hard initially, the G-Loc will bite softer and increase in grip linearly as you near the turn-in point of the turn. We find that as we enter a braking zone behind other cars with Hawks, we will close in on them as we enter the turn, which shows us that a Hawk pad overly slows a car at the initial application of the brakes, whereas the G-Loc will not. Also for those who like to bias your brake balance by using a higher compound in the front compared to the rear, we recommend the R10 compound in the front and the RP8 compound in the rear. The choice is yours, but take our advice and try out these excellent pads!

These pads are the perfect match for your track/race Miata. They are very easy on the rotors, I can usually use the same front rotors for 2+ sets of pads :) The only other "race" pads I have tried were the Hawk Blue and Hawk Black with Dunlop Direzza Star Specs for endurance racing, and it was pretty easy to lock up the fronts. With the Carbotechs there is so much more modulation, it's very easy to be confident going deeper into a corner :) Highly recommend!
