..You can still lock up your tires, correct? What it will do, however, is give you a better feel so you can push the brakes harder to the limit without blocking them up, that is if you're a driver sensitive to the car. ..
lock up your brakes...not tires..

the idea behind the upgrade is that..rubber line expands under pressure

whereas the ss lines keeps its rigidity..major factor as smitty indicated ..is your fluid...

....As soon as they wear out you just bring em back and you get a new pair at no cost....
this is bad advice if the initial inquiry is for track use...

theres no cutting cost at this level

agreed.



Also, every car setup is uniquely different. Take everyones advice with a grain of salt. Do you know the limits of the pads your currently running? Hawks wont help your car stop better than a stock pad, but they are very very hard to fade when road racing. You will NEVER get a set of hawk pads hot enough for them to be affective on an auto-x course. Find out what the limits of your car is, then decide what you need.

Even the HP+ pads?? I got them with autox in mind because they are for street and "light duty track use" and Hawk recommends them for autox. Are you referring to the Hawk race compound pads (I mean the real high temp ferro carbon ones) ?
