Have no idea what kind of pads to buy would like to get some ideas.
i just recently got some Brembo Sport pads, love them, a lil squeaky and a bit dusty but its worth the stopping power
hawk hp+ very squeaky but it stops.
i have used green stuff before and i like it.
I like the Hawk HPS for my street car. Really the brake pads you select are based on the characteristics of your car. Weight, HP, driving style, etc... should all be considered.
I found what worked best for me was running street pads while on the street and running HIGH temp track pads while on the track. Normally on the lighter FWD cars you can run street pads out back and just make sure you run high temp pads up front. I have ran this set up on my RSX out on the track more than a few times and had great results.
i ran hawk hp plus in the front and stock in the rear. it was a track car and the car it self was lighter than than stock. but braking was very well.
I am running stock gsr pads with brembo rotors and the grip is pretty dam good. a little to notchy sometimes :up:
No pad that will do autox and track well at the same time. Don't build up enough heat in autox to get a good race pad hot enough to work properly. I've been happy with Carbotech XP10 on track. Something like a Carbotech AX6 would be a better fit for auto-x.i've been considering carbotech bobcats, looks like I'll try these after my hawk hps's are worn out
Any recommendations for track, time attacks and autox
I slightly disagree with you. According to Cobalt Friction, GT Sports can do both. I know you said they cant do both WELL but these pads can hold up.
Good stuff, did not know that. I would think that the pads would last longer than the rotors though.gt sports will work to start track events, but you can quickly outgrow them. One of the things that I like about carbotech is that you can swap pads on the same set of rotors. bobcat for street, xp10 for track. Not as good as having dedicated track rotors, but much easier than swapping rotors/pads at the track.
unfortunately you cant swap compounds with cobalts/hawks/etc. Also IIRC, isn't the dust from the cobalts corrossive and will etch your wheels?
