Which type of pads do you think are the best?
Yes I know your not suppose to use the brakes but the track I run is usually very heavy and brakes are needed to enter the corners. Thanks

why do you say your not supposed to use the brakes??? In my opinion if your not using the brakes, your not driving the car hard enough.

I just use regular Auto Zone pads LOL!! I know a few guys that run the Hawk "Black" pads and they really like them.

We personally like to use the el-cheapos. We have never had a problem getting the whole year out of them, and my driver likes the feel they give. If you decide to go with the Hawk pads, which many drivers I know run them with much success, just know that they are fairly aggressive and you might want to be a little careful getting into the corner the first few times until you figure them out.

in speedway under hawk pads we use one step down from black still great stopping but not as hard on rotors as blacks
