Now only if he could learn to clean his car
thanks bud...i am going to buy pink racing slippers just to blow your mind. also my car has a half inch of adams products underneath all the brake dust, rubber, and track (off track) dirt

Have never had pads wear out that fast. So in addition to not hauling the Camaro down fast enough, they also wear out very quickly.

Just in case anyone was thinking of buying some

Hawk DTC-30 front and back. I am looking for something to straddle a bit between street and track, and these are good from 100-1200 degrees, apparently.

So far I have found that buying different pads and driving them is a good way to learn what I like and what I don't. Not quite bedded yet but definitely way more torque/grab than the RacingBrake XT910.

What is it with me and brake pads?

Put the DTC-30's on, squealed like a banshee, went and bedded them in and the squealing mostly went away, and what remained was much quieter. Drove around town for a few days - all good.

Got to Summit Point, and after the 3rd run of the day I can't believe how loud the brakes are at low speeds. Coming in under 30 mph they are way louder than when I first put them on, and lower in tone too. It almost sounds like it is metal-on-metal but there's plenty of pad depth there. Looks like quite a lot of pad material on the rotors. Really scratching my head on this one.

Anyone ever had that happen?

Pete

My brakes are always noisy. Loudest when driving home from track for sure. Lots of metal in the form of dust is everywhere which i cant imagine not contributing to the noise.

You should see some of the looks i get when driving with track pads...people think i destroyed my car hahaha. Anyways with your mods listed in signature and what you talked about here you need noisy brakes

I have found that the Hawk pads from HP+ and higher track pads all squeel a lot at slow speed stopping....the Cobalt Friction pads I have now are occasionally noisy, and throw off tons of brake dust, but are definitely quiter than the Hawk pads I have had....still trying to get some of that dust off from when I was racing in the rain and didn't wash it off timely....

Thanks Blake. So dust is the culprit, huh? On the pad or on the rotors, you figure? You ever try any way to get the dust off after the track?

Attached a shot - quite a lot of material on rotors and not really evenly spread...

I don't mind noisy brakes but these actually made the track official cringe and shudder when I pulled up in grid. It really sounds like metal on metal.

Yep. Didn't look like this before the track.

Here's a shot of the passenger side front rotor - same thing. The streaking sure is weird.

Could you post a picture of your rotors so we can compare them to SSsoon?
