    GSL RallySport stocks the complete range of QFM Performance Brake Pads!

    Queensland Friction Materials is a QLD based disc brake pads manufacturing business which was established in 1989.

    The emphasis at QFM as been to develop high quality disc brake pads at highly competitive prices, and this follows through to their excellent performance range!

    QFM's Performance Street pads fall into two compounds. The first is the HPX pad which is the perfect choice for street cars looking for excellent braking performance whilst retaining all the qualities of a good street pad. The HPX pads are ideal for high performance street cars looking for higher working temperatures with reduced fade, and also for Four Wheel Drives or vehicles looking to enhance their towing capacity or safety.The HPX pads unlike many pads in this performance range are virtually dust free, whilst maintaining low rotor wear.

    QFM's second high performance street pad is the A1RM compound and provides QFM with its club sport track pad. It is ideal for high performance street cars that take to the track to test the limits, whilst still being a streetable pad. The A1RM is ideal for club level rally and hill climb where brakes are required right from the first corner!

    SPECIFICATIONS
    Formulation - Cold Friction - High Friction - Temperature (C)

    HP-X - 0.41 - 0.42 - 0-550
    A1RM - 0.40 - 0.48 - 0-780

    QFM has an extensive range covering most makes or models, and can also re-line existing backing plates or old pads! If you have a 'hard-to-get-decent-material' pad, let QFM Performance put one of their high performing compounds onto your pads!

    Any questions or to order, give us a bell on 1300 884 836.

    Some of the latest feedback on QFM pads:

    A1RM
    Well I've just got back from Oz where I spent 2000km's driving on a new set of A1RM pads from gslrallysport.

    These are an excellent road-track day pad and a good compromise for those that want one pad to everything!!! Much cheaper then Brands* A, B, C, D etc and as good or better...

    IMHO these are excellent, very cheap (mine were about $120 for the fronts IIRC) and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!

    If you want a new set of sport pads these are the pad to get!

    As to the A1RM pads, I searched and tried many types and brands to keep pace with my motorsport work, and all came up short of my expectations for the Heavyweight VE Calais-V.

    I went to GSL and they were oh so helpful. They advised a set of A1RM and I subsequently fitted and have never looked back (I do run Castrol SRF fluid). The pads are awesome once bedded in.

    They don't squeel, they are reasonably dust free, perform very well when cold and around town driving, but awesome on the track and twisties.

    Plus the pads are reasonably cheap in comparison to some I have had on the car.

    I will certainly be getting another set when these ones wear out.

    HPX
    By the way those pads I put on (front & rear) are bloody excellent. I already had another performance police spec pad, and apart from being dusty as all hell they stopped well. There is a definant improvement even on those!

    Unfortunatly I didnt get to clean the wheels but I can see the fingerprints on the chrome are still there after a week. They dont seem to grind or squeal, and I think they have a better initial bite then as you increase pressure pull the old girl up smoothly and purposefully (if that makes sense). Brilliant stuff from pads that cost less than half the price, and are locally made.

    Happy as a pig in sh$t. Infact hapy enough to buy a second set to have sit in the shed for next time!

    I have been running the HPX on the front of the convertible for a couple of months now. I have not noticed any dust and the difference to whatever pads were there before is that they perform near 100% from the very first application!

    *** Half Price Rears Deal on AE86 Rear Pads! ***

    To celebrate GSL RallySport as a sponsor on AE86 we're offering rear pads at half price when purchased with fronts! Standard pricing is $79 per set front or rear in HPX, or $119 per set front or rear in A1RM. That means you can get front and rear HPX for $131 delivered, front and rear A1RM for $191 delivered, or front A1RM and rear HPX for $171 delivered!

    We've currently got heaps of stock on the shelf available straight away for the AE86:

    - JDM HPX Front Pads
    - JDM A1RM Front Pads
    - ADM HPX Front Pads
    - ADM A1RM Front Pads
    - ADM A1RM Front Pads minus 3mm thickness (for use with JDM ventilated rotor)
    - HPX Rear Pads
    - A1RM Rear Pads

    Quick run down on the pads:
    - The HPX is a Bendix Ultimate type performance pad, good for about 550 degrees, whilst being virtually dust free, and low rotor wear.
    - The A1RM is a Ferodo DS2500 type performance pad, good for about 780 degrees, but will still work from dead cold (A1RM and HPX have the same cold friction), and relatively low dust and rotor wear. I run the A1RM in both my daily road car and rally car and it isn't a compromise in either.

    Any other questions feel free to let us know, or give us a bell on 1300 884 836.

    Hi Andy,

    Easiest way to order is to swing me your details (either by PM, or preferably email sales <at> gslrallysport dot com), full name, delivery address (preferably work or business), contact number and email and I can fire you through an invoice with direct deposit details. Alternatively credit card over the phone is available on the 1300 number, business hours only though, I'm not there now!

    Cheers,
    Greg

    I hope this doesnt sound too rude but has anyone tried the HPX pads on an aus-spec hachi with slotted rotor's.

    Im after info like how do they fit in the caliper, nice and tight or loose and sloppy, do they fit without mods ie cutting-shaving the edges down to fit. Do they clunk everytime you apply or release the brake.

    The reason i ask is im sick to death of people thinking they are brake experts and just flog off absolute crap.
