Dimpled rotors are a mistake. Hawk HPS are a mistake. I've had really good luck with cheap blank centric rotors and carbotech hp-10 pads. Also make sure to bed them in properly.
Also for lugs the best are arp. I got mine from massive speed in chicago.
I didn't know carbotech made a set for the SVT - interesting.
I've been running Hawk HT-10s and normal blank rotors without a single problem on track, and I really like them.
Ken - welcome to FF! Did you make 100% sure you'd cleaned the rotors well when you did the brake change? Were the pads you used the only ones ever used on the rotors? Did you go through a proper break-in on the pads/rotors (you need to get them hot enough that you can really smell them)? Did you give your brake fluid a complete flush/bleed before the track event (Motive Power Bleeder FTW!)?
Just throwing out ideas - good luck getting it back out there. I'm hoping to make it out to Summit one of these days.
