The C6 Corvette Z06 uses 6 pads in each front caliper and 4 pads in each rear. That system, supplied by PBR, leaves a LOT to be desired for those drivers pushing that car very hard (not that it is related at all to the PFC system). It might be better to use other criteria in making an evaluation.

By the way, AP Racing has been making calipers and discs for professional motorsports, OE and aftermarket customers for almost 40 years. It original parent (Automotive Products plc) had been manufacturing brake systems since sometime around 1918, I believe, with Mr. Malcolm Lougheed (later changing his name to Lockheed) and his initial development of automotive hydraulic brake systems. Just a point of reference.
