It’s Testimonial Tuesday and today we’re talking shop with Brian from BC MotorWorx in West Covina, CA.
To give it extra bite, Brian is installing DFC 5000 ADVANCED brake pads on a 2013 Ford Raptor. How do these pads perform? According to Brian, they provide:
Impressive braking performance
Excellent OE fitment

The 5000 ADVANCED pads also perform well in other important areas. The graph below highlights performance across 12 important metrics, ranging from low noise and cleanliness, to pad and rotor life.
Check it out below.
DFC 5000 ADVANCED brake pads include friction materials designed to meet the increasing demands of modern vehicles with ABS.
This entire process requires dedicated work. Our research team partners with OEM friction suppliers in 4 continents to provide specially formulated products that meet exact requirements, whether for a family sedan, performance car, or truck.
DFC has taken all of this (and much more) into account and provides the appropriate friction for each axle of each and every vehicle.
It’s Testimonial Tuesday and we caught up with Jason from RT Clapp Car Repair Center in Tennessee.
DFC 5000 ADVANCED brake padsgive you dependable stopping power on your daily drive. Whether you’re driving a family sedan, a sport compact or a light duty truck, the brake response is firm and responsive, like when your car was new.

In any braking system, the individual components need to interact with each other for an optimal stopping experience.
Each component depends on each other, and on specific measurements that are designed into each part. All of this ensures a complete system match for your vehicle.
DFC 5000 ADVANCED brake pads were formulated for each individual axle, with friction materials designed to meet the increasing demands of modern vehicles with ABS.
DFC is the first to act upon these new demands by not only reviewing the original equipment brake systems by platform, but specific vehicles within the platform.
It often happens with specific vehicle tuning (such as a change in wheel and tire size), that the friction material is also changed to compensate for the increased (or decreased) traction capability without changing any of the other parameters in the braking system.
We have taken all of this into account and provide the market with the appropriate friction for each axle of each and every vehicle.
We stand by the premium quality of DFC 5000 ADVANCEDbrake padsand are confident they improve driving safety and overall braking performance.
We caught up with Robert from TLC Automotive to talk shop. Click the video below to hear his thoughts on heat dissipation and other top value features of the DFC 5000 ADVANCED brake pads.
DFC 5000 ADVANCED brake pads are specially formulated for each axle. Because individual components need to interact with one another (each depending on very specific parameters designed into each part), these pads were designed for a system match.
They are a popular choice for compact sports cars, family sedans and even light duty trucks. As far as maintaining balanced braking (important for vehicles with ABS and automated braking), these pads deliver smooth and reliable stopping power.
DFC 5000 ADVANCED brake pads provide the proper friction performance through efficient heat dissipation and are a 100% asbestos-free.
Customers have delighted in both the reasonable price point and the overall quality of these pads. The braking period is very good and there are no squeaks and no shaking. Furthermore, they dissipate heat quickly–meaning rotors won’t get warped.
Due to the sophistication in today’s vehicles, we are committed to offering brake parts of the highest standard and performance.
In the video below, Co-Founder Dino Crescentini highlights some of the signature features of our DFC 5000 EURO ceramic brake pads. Specially designed for European vehicles, they provide optimal stopping power, exceptional fade resistance and stable friction performance across wide temps.

Our High Performance formulation provides additional benefits. These pads were formulated to:
• Eliminate low-speed noise so you can enjoy your drive • Keep your wheels clean with low dusting • Be environmentally friendly with a low copper ceramic formulation (2021 California/Washington Compliant – Leaf Mark B)
Overall, DFC 5000 EURO ceramic brake pads bring you back to that feeling when your car was new and had amazing stopping power.
We know many drivers with European vehicles don’t like the unsightly dust or noise that comes with stock brakes. Many of them upgrade to 5000 EURO for a quieter drive and cleaner wheels, and a luxury experience.
Vehicles today are increasingly more sophisticated. That means they also require the highest standard and performance from their braking systems.
Take the DFC 5000 ADVANCED brake pads, for example. These were designed and specially formulated for each axle for family sedans, compact sports cars and light duty trucks. They allow the vehicle to maintain balanced braking–important for vehicles with ABS and automated braking.
Because they provide the correct friction performance, they offer the safest possible braking, and are a 100% asbestos-free formulation.
Knowing the premium quality of the DFC 5000 ADVANCED brake pads, we wanted to hear from brake specialists and see how they felt about them.
At DFC, we pride ourselves on offering several specialty formulas.
One of those, of course, is the Ultimate Duty Pads. Specially designed for lifted trucks, or large trucks with big wheels and tires, they perform exceptionally well during off-roading or towing.
In the video below, Co-Founder Dino Crescentini, highlights some of the signature features and applications for our Ultimate Duty Pads. Click the image below to view the video.
Our High Performance formulation provides additional benefits, like:
Extremely high torque with aggressive initial bite
Excellent friction stability and consistency
Outstanding modulation, threshold control, and release characteristic
It’s important to remember that large or lifted trucks typically come with stock brake systems. Oftentimes, those stock brake systems simply cannot handle the excess weight that comes with large tires and wheels. This likely means that stock brakes will wear out a lot faster due to the additional stress on the brake system.
The technology for the Ultimate Duty Performance Pads was developed in Germany. It’s a technology that combines a sports car formula with a Class A vehicle formula.
If you’re trailering or have a lifted truck with big wheels and tires, these are the brakes that you want…and need.
All DFC rotors and drums are based on OEM fit, form, and function. Our benchmark for design is OEM. This means that we have to capture all the dimensions of the design, including cooling veins to ensure proper performance for all usage conditions. Some of you are probably wondering…what does OEM mean? OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer. This ultimately means that the parts we build are based on an organization’s specific OEM.
DFC capture all the specific dimensions using a FaroArm CMM
We catch all the specific dimensions of a design through the use of a FaroArm CMM (coordinate measuring machine), which allows us to capture every last detail of the design with great precision. Our capabilities include (but are not limited to):
• probe data measuring for most machine surfaces • laser scanning for complex surfaces • OES methods to analyze metallurgy and match high-carbon content iron • designing CAD Models
Of course, these tools and methods are performed in conjunction with one another. This ensures that we get the most accurate data available.
Many part manufacturers only focus on production and revenue. Here at DFC, however, we prioritize your safety and the performance of every single product we release. We want you to feel safe on the road and also want for our products to contribute to that safety. To achieve that, all braking system parts require a lot of research, calculation, and measurement to work properly and perform at their best.
OES Methods & CAD Models
OES methods are key to ensuring that modern performance applications have the correct material and characteristics required for higher demand, automated braking systems. CAD models, on the other hand, are created in order to optimize performance and ensure that all DFC parts perform at their absolute best.
Using analysis methods, we determine how our parts will act and react during certain conditions. These tools also allow us to make data-driven decisions when consolidating OEM part numbers. These all ultimately result in us being able to offer you and our partners the best-performing parts in the market.
