Choosing the proper brake pad compound that will provide the best performance for your motorsports application can be made easier by following some guidelines.

  • Determine what compounds and styles of brake pads are available for your calipers and type of racing.
  • Determine the operating temperature of your cars brake system. Heat sensitive paint can be applied to the brake pads and rotors to help you gauge temperature. Tire pyrometers can be used but due to the cool down time the temperature numbers may not be accurate.
  • Upon learning your system's temperatures, or if you do not know your temperatures contact Hawk Performance for recommendations regarding proper brake material for your application.
  • Other drivers that share your driving style will sometimes provide valuable information that may allow you to learn what brake pads other drivers have used and liked or disliked.
  • Contact your local racing products dealer and inquire as to what brake pads they offer and recommend for your application.
  • It’s important to understand different types of racecars, racing surfaces and driving styles may require different levels of braking performance, and many drivers expect the brake system to have a certain feel that suits their individual needs. Because of this, it should not be assumed that what works for one driver would work for all. In some cases the best way to learn what is best for you is to experiment with a variety of friction compounds to determine how a particular pad differs from another regarding issues such as pedal feel, consistency, and rotor and brake pad wear.
