Need advise for Track Brake Pads Hawk DTC60 or Carbotech

Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum, I need to replace front brake pads, I currently using the Hawk DTC-60 all around, the rear pads still got whole lot left, but front are not so much, I like the DTC-60s when they are new, I had 3 track days on them, but they still fade a bit when they get thin, is all the pads gonna do that?
I'm thinking about getting another set of DTC-60s or 70s? I also heard some good word about Carbotech pads, I have no clue what they gonna do.

My car is 13 1ss, Stock Brembo brake. I have quantum brake ducts kits, and goodbridge stainless steel line, fluid right now is Motul RPF600, I think i will switch to SRF next time


Thanks in advance for all the reply!!!

Cobalt friction XR-1's. Or Carbotech XP-12's or 20's. I have run the XR-1's and the 12's and have gone through both in a day but I am an aggressive braker. What level HPDE driver are you?

Also, the SRF is REALLY expensive, Like $70 a pint compared to $15ish for the motul, FYI.

There also might be some more info in the Road Course Auto X section.

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.

Castrol is just $70/liter. You need 3pints so Compared to 3 pints of Motul rbf650 for $45 you need a little over $100 for Castrol.
