    Great Brake

    The braking improvement is very noticeble with these pads. I use them on road racing and daily driving and definetly feel confident while braking. One important thing to keep in mind is heat. Turn off the traction control! In my case if I don't do it, it will apply the brakes trough and at the exit of the corner overheating the brake system and cause the fuild to boil, and the pads to fade. The Mustangs are very heavy and if you do not have an efficient cooling system for your brakes you are foing to overwhelm them with the traction control.

    Excellent Stopping Power!

    I recently ran these pads at Road Atlanta against a set of freshly turned stock rotors. I installed the pads and rotors at the track and followed the "bedding-in" procedures recommended by Hawk. They are a bit noisy when cold, but initial bite is excellent and they are incredible when at operating temperature. I ran these pads on all 4 corners with JLT brake cooling ducts on the fronts, and I had zero issues with fade, fluid boil or dust boot failures. Using an IR temperature probe, I measured my front rotor temps in the pits after each 20-minute session(which included a single cool-down lap) and the temps on the front rotors were around 250-275 degrees. Pad and caliper temperature never exceeded 180 degrees. They do produce quite a bit of dust, but this is to be expected with this type of pad. I would highly recommend these as an excellent Track Day pad considering the price point.

    Very good track pads that can be used on the street

    I am impressed with these pads. They are the first racing pad I have used. Once warm they have incredible stopping power. The brake pedal feels too soft when they are cold, usually when first driving on the street. I purchased these for a track day and had planned on using them full time and just replacing them when needed. You can drive with them on the street safely, but I am going to purchase a street/strip pair of pads and keep these for track days. There is some squeal when cold but that is expected for track pads. Make Sure you have a caliper piston tool!!! The rear pistons will not retract unless you rotate them while they have pressure!!!!!! You can rent or purchase that tool from your local auto parts house

    Simply Awesome

    Put these on our 07 Shelby GT Mustang and, WOW, what a difference. I put them in when we take it to track days. After track, I then take them out and replace with Hawk HP pads for everyday driving. The HP+ pads are very aggressive. If they are not hot enough, they are LOUD. Simple to install. It takes me a couple of hours. I think Hawk Performance brake pads are very good indeed.

    Great pads, but very dusty

    Got front and back sets. Heat-cycled pads and since then they are amazing. Running them since July, and didn't notice much/abnormal wear on rotors yet. Great initial bite while cold too. Only draw back is amount of dust they produce, it is alot but expected. And they are very very loud too, often ear piercing. So far I find them much better than EBC Yellow Stuff.

    Street / autox pad

    I really like the HP+ pads. I used my Mustang as a daily driver and a weekend autocrosser. I installed the brakes myself the pads with new stock disk. After bedding the brakes, the initial grab of these pads is super. With my sticky autox tires, it's like dropping an anchor. Even around town I like the extra quick stopping power. There is extra brake dust as with any performance pad. I used brake quiet during the install, but there is an occasional squeal on slower stops; however, it's not as bad as I feared and not very frequent. I don't have a lot of miles on the pads, maybe 3,000, but I don't expect to get much more than 10,000 miles out of pads like these. But if I stick to autoxing, I would definitely but another set at that point.

    Significant difference over stock

    very important to bed in the brakes. I did the full procedure and I didn't have any squeaking at low speed. I switch out the daily driver pads the night before track in about an hour. If used stock, centric and Hawk, the Hawk brakes work, period. No issues doing 30 - 60 minutes track sessions.

    Hawk pad power stop

    The stopping power is great combined with a PowerSlot Rotor. American Muscle has the best customers service when it comes performance for your car. The only issue i have is it makes a lot of noise when coming to a complete stop. I recommend this product as long as squeaky noise isn't an issue for buyer.

    Don't buy for street use. Excellent on track!

    Have used for two weekends now with no brake fade at mid Ohio (about four hours of track time). Work great on track but they are very noisy on the street (extremely annoying). Will definitely buy them again for track use. Would stick to the HPS for street use.
