AVID CPD AE/Yokomo slipper pads

AVID RC have introduced their new Consistent Power Delivery (CPD) slipper pads for Team Associated and Yokomo slippers. The CPD slipper pads are made with a new material designed with the focus of providing a larger tuning window while also being able to handle higher temps. This allows for less slipper fade during a run and you don’t have to adjust your slipper setting nearly as often to maintain the same track feel. The Triad pads are distinguishable from the white Triad pads by having radius notches on each of the pad arms.
