Listen to the wise ones here Mike.
HPS is decent for Autocross but not a "Track". It just can't stand up for long periods. Especially once you start going to larger tracks.
Hawk DCT-XX are tough on rotors but good.
Carbotech is easier on rotors and good intermediate pads.
Cobalt Friction is excellent for the big dogs.
If you already have rotors, use them but watch them for cracks. Once they crack, get better ones.

The drag strip is like sniffing glue, it's cheap, it's a decent buzz, it doesn't last long and they are all the same.
Road racing is like China White Heroin, the buzz is stronger, the high lasts for hours, it's extremely addictive and they are all different.
I can't wait for my next Track fix. DA HAWKS used to OWN DA CUP!!!!!
