DS3000 is one of the most decorated race pads in the global motorsports market, having won in diverse venues from rally to open wheel cars. The DS3000 has high bite and good fade resistance. It has a slightly rising torque curve, which means that as temperatures go up, bite increases slightly. Although the bite of the DS3000 is slightly higher than the DS1.11, wear rates are also higher. If you are doing extended lapping (30 minute+ sessions) or endurance racing, and are concerned about pad wear rates, the DS1.11 is probably the better choice for you.
