What are the options out there for an SVTF, right now its been on EBC Reds, would like to try Hawk, but who makes REAL track pads for this car? What are the normal road course guys using. The brakes have been decent, but the car is getting R comps this year, and i have a feeling the brakes will be at their limit.

I've used Hawk Blues and Porterfields with good results. The Hawk blues have just as much bite and last longer IMHO.

Contact Dan Puskar at Carbotech Brakes (www.CTBrakes.com). He can help you with the right pads. I've run their pads for years on a variety of different cars and they not only have great stopping and modulation characteristics, but they are VERY easy on rotors.

I had some great luck with the hawk hp plus pads at the track

You have 2 REAL choices, hawk or carbotech. I personally recommend carbotech xp10 front xp8 rear.
And hawk hp + is an autocross pad.

I would have to agree w/ hawk blues too, but if ur gonna be driving on the street, i wouldn't recommend it!

I have run the Ferodo DS2500's at Sebring and the Glen in a JRSC SVT five door. They drove like street pads on the road and worked great on track.
