Hawk Brake Pads

As you can see here the factory 9-5 Aero pads are not up to countering the 340hp. There is obvious breakdown of the friction material. Not to mention the cracks… The new Hawk HPS street / track pads are great. The initial bite is good and then builds from there. Need a few more miles of breakin before full testing. I think these are my new favorite pads. The EBC green were ok until just purely abusing them. Once you get some really sticky tires like the Corsas the brakes have no hope. Hopefully in the next few weeks I will have the 13″ brakes done. 330mm fronts with the 300mm rear brakes should make a nice balance.
