Hawk's HP Plus brake pad compound is
ideal for autocross and novice track day drivers looking for a high performance
race compound that can take the heat of the track and get you home safely
without having to change the pads.
HP Plus utilizes a unique
Ferro-Carbon, high-tech friction material that was developed and manufactured
for sport driving in autocross, Solo II and “track day” applications. The
Ferro-Carbon formulation offers lower wear rates and higher torque values than
other competitive materials. Extremely high
coefficient of friction makes HP Plus the perfect upgrade over stock for high
performance streetcars used in autocross competition or that experience
repetitive, heavy braking.
Due to the
dramatic friction levels produced by this product to achieve
"race-level" braking, rotor wear, noise, dust, and pad life may be
sales associates will try to ensure accuracy of the products ordered based on
the year and model provided by the customer. The ultimate responsibility still
falls onto the customer to select the correct parts and type the current year
and model in the specified blank. The year and model (ex."1998 328i")
of your BMW can be found with the VIN number in the driver’s door jam. If
there is any confusion in the listing please contact one of our sales
representatives for clarification.
**We have 2 available pad options for these
Pad shape 362 has smaller fastening clips and have to be spread out to fit some
***Hawk does not currently have proprietary part
numbers for these locations though we have found these pad shapes will fit with
slight modification to the backing plate clips.
****Due to dimensional differences in pad shapes
we do not suggest Hawk performance pads with Performance Friction Direct Drive
rotors for any application.
Great for AutoX
From sooky123 of Delray Beach, Florida on 10/23/2012.
Very nice brake pad. Has incredible initial bite fairly good moderation and overall great for autox. They also perform well when cold which is a big plus for autox however, when warmed up they are phenomenal. Only downsides are the added brake dust and it's a fairly noisy pad.
From justin hill of Prospect Hill, North Carolina on 11/22/2011.
I am very impressed with the HP plus pads. The brake dust is about the same, maybe just a little more than stock but there are sprays you can put on your wheels so the dust does not stick. I have these pads on my street E30 5-lug and I'll buy them again. They have great bite right off the bat and do well with hard driving.
FOR THE TRACK!
From trevor hilton of murrieta, California on 5/30/2008.
Not good for the street. Amazingly annoyingly loud. Not great when they're cold, but pretty good when warmed up. So, extremely loud in the worst way.
From Iansane of Lansing, Michigan on 7/30/2007.
HIGHS: Oustanding braking power. No fade. LOWS: Unbelievable squealing noise. Ridiculus brake dust. VERDICT: Great at track events only.
