I am retracting what I said in a prior review. During my last brake pad replacement, I ran into problems with brake calipers. Through a process of elimination 1) possible bad resurfacing of the rotors and 2) possible bad calipers, I eventually found that the calipers were bad. Because I didn't resurface the rotors and HPS 5.0 pads after the multiple changes, the brakes didn't work properly. Hawk recommended 200 grit sanding of pads and rotors and rebedding as recommended. IT WORKED!

I had been using Hawk pads looking for the promised great street/track pad that people claimed they were. The only Hawks that worked are very hard on rotors and noisy. I moved on to StopTech and Baer performance pads, good street pads but not a track pad. Next I tried the EBC Yellows then Blues when first came out then to Blue NDX. The NDX are the BEST street/track pads so far with great pedal feel, long rotor life and good fade resistance. Work on my S197 GT and M3 track days and DD street use.
