Stock pads are pretty good. What do you use the car for?

I went with the Hawk Ceramic pads over the stock ones to reduce the dust that the stock pads produce. They work great at minimizing dust. I didnt have the stock pads on that long to give a performance comparison.

Hawk HPS are great street pads. I recently installed them on my Camaro. They have similar bite compared to factory pads, dust less, and seem to last longer. I wouldn't use them for extended track use though because they seem to fade more when hot (compared to factory pads).

When you say to the track, what exactly do you mean? Dragway, autocross, road course?

If road course then that's a whole other ballgame. Roadcourses can be tough on brakes, so you want at minimum the OEM pads, Hawk HP+ or better. Even the HP+ isn't really that good on a fast track.

If the OEM pads are still in good shape I would stick with them and swap your brake fluid out with some ATE200 or Motul RBF600 fluid and not worry about it. Assuming you will be new on the track you likely will not be using the brakes to their extent, and the fluid change will be the best change you can make.
