Hawk pads are unbelievable
First install set on my 2010 Mustang GT. Absolutely no fade the harder you press the brake pedal the stopping power increases. These pads dig in so hard it feels like your eye balls are going to pop out of their sockets. With that experience I installed this second set on my Lexus IS250. What stopping power and that without locking the tires up and kicking in the ABS brakes. Only have 20K miles on both cars. These ceramics wear the rotor more evenly. Not so many swirl marks.
EBC yellow stuff
+ Work cold so ok for street use. + OK for track low coefficient of friction so they don't over power street tires. - Can get a little slippery from over heating. - Hard on discs. + Half (or less) the cost of competitors track pads. A good compromise pad if you accept the trade offs, drive on the street and on the track without changing.
