So what makes the squeal, then? Modern brakes use a cast-iron disc squeezed between two brake pads lined with Auto Brake . Under the right conditions, the disc, the pads and the caliper they're mounted in can start to vibrate—in exactly the same way a violin's string vibrates when stroked by the horsehairs on the bow. The violin's pitch is controlled by the position of the violinist's finger on the string, not by how hard or fast the bow is stroked. Similarly, most brake squeals occur at a single discrete frequency. The speed of the vehicle and how hard you press down on the left pedal will only change the volume of noise, because the pitch is controlled by the stiffness and mass of the pad and disc.

As with Mu and compressibility, release is a term you hear thrown around quite a bit in race pad discussions. A pad with poor release continues to ride the rotor after the brake pedal is released. The pads feel 'sticky,' and won't let go of the rotors as you trail brake into a turn. As with compressibility, you'll have to discover which pad compound suits your taste in this regard through experience or recommendation from a trusted source.

For the competitive time trial or time attack driver, experience and a detailed analysis of the driving environment will be core determinants in choosing the appropriate pad compound. It's obvious that a semi-metallic or sintered compound with a high max operating temperature and predictable response is critical. After that, it gets tricky. Relying on the subjective opinion of friends, competitors, and experts to describe the subtle nuances of a given pad can be helpful, but don't be surprised if your reaction to the pads is completely different when you try them for the first time.

Because of their format, certain time trial and time attack events do offer the China Brake Factory to exploit a competitive advantage through brake pad selection. Some organizations run a format of one warm-up lap, followed immediately by a very limited number of hot/timed laps (one to three), culminating with a cool-down. Just as with autocross, a brake pad that doesn't need a substantial amount of heat to provide stable maximum friction can provide a great advantage. In this regard, a sintered pad has the advantage over other pad types.
