I need to get some weight out of my barge, but it's a full blown street car I drive it all over, 3800 lbs with me in it and full of fuel.

 

Did the Hot Rod Power Tour long haul with it last year....................3900 miles in 10 days.

 

It eats brake pads like candy, Carbotech XP20 were toast in not quite 7 sessions my last trip to NOLA.

 

Any suggestions on brake pads lasting besides "Don't use the brakes so much, they only slow you down"?

 

Car has C6 Vette brake son the front with cooling ducts. I would like to keep my 17 inch wheels as tires are cheaper. A $4000 brake kit is out, that's 1/3 of what I have in the whole car.

 

I may drop back to an XP12 as I see no real difference between the 20 and the 12 except for price.

 

Is there any pad I can use that will give more life? I dont care if it eats rotors or not.

Hawk DTC-60. I throw away 3 sets of $20 Autozone rotors for every set of those I go through.

Spec Miata 2:04+ with 130 hp/3150 lbs on Toyo RA1's, 205/50R15s.

GTS2 1987 Porsche 944 Turbo with 190 rwhp on 245 and 265R40/17s, 1:59.5 on Goodrich and another brand, but "probably" a second or two faster on Hoosiers.

On SM I had good results from carbotechs and Hawks. Carbotechs were 12 fronts and 10 rears. Lasted months. Hawk blues were good, too.

I suggest trying some CL RC6. I like them and found they last pretty good, and I fully utilize my brakes.

 

on my C5Z vette so far for track I have ran:

hawk HPS, these are "performance street". that was OMG scary by the end of the day. dont do that.

Carbotech XP 12, I like them but they didnt bite quite as hard or last as long as the next line item

Carbo Lorainne RC6, OMG stop now, made it through 4 track days (320 minutes), no fade, no need to bed it (sintered compound). however rough on rotors. I will get these again. Love them.

I see I have some work to do. My goal is to run a 1:59.9999 lap in my car on the street tires(NT-05 200 tread wear). I pushed it pretty hard to get the 2:05 lap out of it. It being a full on street car has it's handicaps.

 

I have indentified some areas I can improve on, but I dont see dropping 5 seconds from those areas.

 

I will change my braking habits next time out from an article I read on Axis of Oversteer and see how that works. The F body platform has rear brake wheel hop issues if pushed too hard. It WILL get your attention....you can't just stand on the brakes in my car, if you are too hard the rear starts to wheel hop violently.

Best time yesterday (July 21) was 2:39...I'll take that as it was my very first HPDE-1 and it was raining all morning so getting it done "in the wet" was very interesting.

 

1993 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra, NT05s (255f/275r), 300hp at the crank if I'm lucky

I used to be scared to run in the rain.

 

Rain days accelerate your learning curve in a very good way. Everything the car will do in the dry, it will do in the rain just at a much lower speed.

 

Good runs in the wet.

Small update... I ran a 2:10 (according to Harry's Lap Timer, so take that with a grain of salt) at the Aug 23rd Track Day Heavy event.

1:53.4 - driving around puddles on the apexes this weekend (first visit to NOLA). Track is very hard on brakes, but loved the track and amenities. Car is a 944 with LS1 at 350 rwhp. Should be able to get times down to high 50's, low 51's.

 

My only complaint is that I didn't see any showers, it's a long smelly trip back to B'ham after racing all day

I believe the showers are in the bottom floor of the building used for race control/timing scoring.
