Hello.

I have an 95 Civic Coupe (upgraded 15/16 brake master cylinder and I will be doing the ITR caliper and Mini Cooper front 11" disks brake upgrade.

Because of brake upgrade I need recommendations on brake pads. Car will have limited street use and mostly high performance track sessions...

Please give brand recommendations and experience on longevity...

Thanks.

I used to use Hawk HP+ on my street/track toy civic when I was still running it and was pretty satisfied with them.  It has been a long time so I honestly don't remember how long they lasted.

We run HAWK HT-10 up front(https://www.hawkperformance.com/ht-10) on our race car(96 Saturn SC2 - PTE/TTE). Works great and lasts the whole season of sprint racing, endurance, and time trial. Great pedal feel and easy to modulate.

On my race car (2000 Honda Civic hatch with 11" front rotors, ~2500 lbs with driver, 180whp), for a while I was running Carbotech XP10 pads in the front and AX6 in the rear, and I liked the feel.  I'm not sure how well they would do on the street.  The Carbotech compounds are listed at http://ctbrakes.com/brake-compounds.asp and they don't recommend the XP10 pads for the street, but maybe give the combo a try.  - Jim
