Great Brake Pads!

Just installed this pads a few days ago. These are definitely way better than the stock pads for the 2011 shelby gt500. Highly recommend when your pads are in need of replace. You will feel a huge difference

Works as advertised

Pads are great for the track but as mentioned not to be used for daily driving. They create a lot of dust and squeal pretty badly when warmed up but not at track temp. But...they work great at the track.

    Very nice. No fade on track.

    Awesome! I have these installed with the Ford Racing brake kit on a 2012 V6. I can stop on a dime, check to see what year it is, replace it with two nickels and still have time to check my mirrors going into a corner on track. Seriously, no fade in sessions lasting over 30 minutes on a highly technical course requiring heavy duty brakes (Calabogie Motorsports, Ontario, Canada). Highly recommended.

    Really Loud Pads!!!

    Stop the pony good only side effect is these are really really loud brake pads. Just be aware they made really bad screaming sound when you just tap the brake. Makes you think something is wrong with your brakes. I resurface the rotors to make sure they are smooth. But these brakes make horrible noise unless you step on it really hard. There must be some performance brake pads out there doesn't make horrible noise like these pads. But stopping power is good. Better than stock brembo.

    Pads are great for the track but as mentioned not to be used for daily driving. They create a lot of dust and squeal pretty badly when warmed up but not at track temp. But...they work great at the track. So much that instead of my pads fading, I now boil my brake fluid instead. Time to get that factory fluid out of there. Good bite, good stopping power and not much fade at all.

    Awesome Brembo replacements

    They fit perfectly and only took an hour to replace all 4 front pads. They are also a lot less dusty than the stock brembo pads, I already clean the car every weekend but now it's easy on the rims.

    Great Brakes for Brembo's

    I installed these easily in my 2011 Brembo Package mustang. Install was easy and strait forward. I also installed the rear pads at the same time. After bedding the brakes as Hawk described they worked great. When cold (everyday Driving) they work great and do not make much noise. When you get them hot, after some heavy braking they stop your car like your dropping an anchor. They do make a lot of brake dust, but that is expected. I bought these pads for an HPDE event but I have not done the event yet so I cannot comment on how well they work for that. I gave them 4 stars on Bang for Buck because they are more expensive than stock pads. Great Pads

    Awesome track day pads

    Used these with ate superblue fluid on my 2012 GT for a track day at limerock. Very little fade if any. When i took them off the paint on the pad had bubbled and cracked off, but the pads were flawless!

    Hawk HP Plus for brembos

    I choose these Hawk pads for open track events. They have alot of initial bite and are surprisingly quiet on the street. On the track they will stop from 130mph with ease. The downside is that under HARD breaking the pads seem to grip to a certain point and wont grip as expected. Usually at that point the tires are locking up anyway. I would choose these pads again.

    Hawk HP plus Pads

    These pads work well for my style of driving, wide open throttle all the time. Hitting the autobahns here in Germany tend to eat pads quickly. Every other pad I have used except these have had serious fade. These pads are great for breaking at speeds well above 160MPH. I drag race on the European Street Eliminator Circut as well and I do not have any issues with stoping. The Hawk Hp plus pads have been tested thoroughly at the famous Nurnburgring. If you want a great pads that stops without fail from high speeds, buy these!
