Where to get Cobalt Frictions?

Wondering where people are getting their pads from? I need XR1/XR3 in ZL1 sizes for a fair price.

Also are you swapping to a street pad? If so what have you found to be compatible from a compound standpoint?

Everything cheaper I've tried has failed on track. Not a feeling I enjoy.

Not sure what this guy is talking about. I've never had a problem with LG and everyone i've met that has used them for anything hasnt either.

What are they "screwing" you on?

Lucky for you....they just refunded the money today after 3 weeks of telling me they would when they couldn't get the parts ordered...that is not good customer service to me...

Agree, they work the best, but are expensive...I swapped to Hawk DTC 30's this round, will see how they do as Danny Popp recently told me that he uses....

Don't do it. Mine overheated and left deposits running very easy on a cold day the first time out. They felt downright scarey.

Price is steep, but from the research and dialogue I've done with Andie, they were a necessary purchase.

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.
