Bedding brakes at the track.

Yes, I will be there in a blue 350Z. I'll be with my buddy who is in a yellow 65 Mustang. I was surprised to see very few older Mustangs on the entrants list.

 

I noticed that Jim Pantas was going to be there too.

 

Looks like the weather could be real nice and not quite as hot as the last week or so.

The Carbotech brakes worked great. Was able to brake later and compress my braking zones a great deal. No heat/fade issues at all. Carbotech also gave away a free set of pads to one of the drivers which was very cool.

Does anyone have any information comparing the Carbotechs to the Hawk HP+ pads?

The best comparison is the one you do your self.

Closest I can give you is using a Crovette.

Had students with HP+, its a minimal pad for the track. They are prone to fade when you start pushing them. Stock Corvette pads on the z06 are about the same. Carbotech 1521 (I think I got the new number right) is a street only pad, the autocross pad is good for street/autocross. I put XP8 on my DD 2012 V6 Camaro. On the track these pads are night and day different from the stock pads, they squeal a bit on the street. On my 3400 (wet+driver) lb corvette they are not optimal for track duty, but about the same as hawk blues I had on a mustang. I run xp12/10 combo now on my Corvette and they are much better than the xp8.

 

Wife's daily driver has hawk HPS and she likes them, this is a street driven car. When I've had students with HPS' I know to keep the braking exercises early in the session casue they fade fast when they get hot.
