I Just got some Hawk HP plus pads, a friend that does more track time than me said they work great.
I have used mintex red, ebc green's, and my fav Hawk blues!
My friend Jayson just completed his first HPDE on his '07 Gti, tune, shocks/springs, stock wheels surely needs some better braking.
Fluid and some pads.
He'll be doing A LOT of mainly DD duty so they need to be quiet/clean'ish but handle the heat of a 20min DE session.
I haven't used many "street/track" perf. pads other than from borrowed autoX cars and some HPS's I had on a beater '94 Escort GT. I'm usually buying Hawk blue/PCF01's/R4's etc..
Pretty heavy car but I feel there's going to be some decent improvements w. a nice pad and some better rated fluid.
Thank guys.. I think HP+ are probably his best bet!
I had Blues on my Spec Miata.. They were pure metal on metal sounding when they were cold! Def, a track only pad there! Porterfield R4's w. the Kevlar blend were great on track and around town on my S2000. Although I did get a bad batch of rears and turned them into charcoal in 2 track sessions. Porterfield sent me a new set free when I emailed them the photo of mine! Scary snap oversteer under braking!
