Endless EX90 Street and Track Brake Pads - Tesla Model 3 and Y Performance
Endless was found by Japanese open wheel racer Isao Hanazato in the mid-1980s. Just a year later, Endless' highly praised pads had over 70% of the racecar brake pad market share in Japan. Today, Endless products are found in the top echelon of motorsport as a supplier to F1 teams, SuperGT, and the factory BMW race programs. All Endless products are made in-house and manufactured in Japan with the highest levels of quality control and surfacing accuracy to within 1/1000 of a mm. That is tight stuff.
If you have ever searched for brake pads for the Model 3 Performance, you will notice that both the front and rear pad shapes appear to be unique to the vehicle. This is where Endless's manufacturing expertise comes in as they were one of the first few to market with a Model 3 Performance application.
Endless provides two different compounds for the Tesla Model 3 platform. Though not officially published, the EX90 is thought to be a domestic branding of the MX72 compound. This is a dual use Street and Track compound with ideal rotor temperatures from 50°C to 700°C (122°F to 1292°F) and a coefficient of friction (μ) of 0.37 to 0.47, designed for minimal noise and low dust. A step up in heat handling is the EX99, which is thought to be a domestic branding of the CC-Rg. This is a track-focused compound with ideal rotor temperatures from 50°C to 800°C (122°F to 1472°F) and a μ of 0.38 to 0.45.
