Description

Hawk Performance's HP Plus brake pad compound is ideal for Autocross and 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.

All Hawk Performance HP Plus / Autocross brake pads provide a limited lifetime warranty, ensuring products to be free of defects from manufacturer's workmanship and materials.

Warning

Due to the dramatic friction levels produced by this product to achieve "race-level" braking, rotor wear, noise, dust, and pad life may be affected.

Note

Hawk Performance burnishes its HP Plus brake pads as a final step in the factory, but all brake pads have to be bedded-in with the rotors (new or used) that they will be used against. Properly bedding-in new brake pads results in a transfer film being generated at the pad and rotor interface to maximize brake performance.

How To Bed-In/Burnish Brake Pads

  1. After installing new brake pads, make 6-to-10 stops from approximately 30-35 MPH applying moderate pressure.
  2. Make an additional 2-to-3 hard stops from approximately 40-45 MPH.
  3. DO NOT DRAG BRAKES!
  4. Allow at least 15 minutes for the brake system to cool down.
  5. After step 4 is completed, your new Hawk Performance brake pads are ready for use.

Best budget track pad

By derek cyphers on 6/8/2013

I've tried several different brake compounds for the RSX, trying to find one that does the best job balancing street use and track use, and the HP+ is it. For the track, the HP+ has held up better on hard breaking circuits better than EBC Yellowstuff, lasting longer and resisting fade much better. While I found the EBC Yellows and Hawk HPS easier to get to behave on the street in terms of noise and feel, once the HP+s were fully bedded, I have had no issues whatsoever. In fact, my front HP+s make less dust than the EBC Yellows still on the rear, which is remarkable as the fronts do much more of the braking. Overall, if you are looking for a pad set for the track without breaking the bank on something like Carbotech, this is what I would recommend. For longevity sake, I'd still swap them out for a street pad after your track day is over.

they do their job...

By dennis on 7/20/2008

I purchased these pads as part of a brake system upgrade with performance in mind. Paired with Powerslot slotted rotors, these pads give incredible stopping power. I have yet to experience ANY brake fade, and they bring me down from over 100mph with ease. Keep in mind, these are high performance pads, so they do make a lot more noise. When driving around town, coming to a slow rolling stop produces LOUD squeeks (I may have bed them in improperly), and hard braking produces more noise, but the bottom line is, if you need a pad that is suitable for high performance braking, with no brake fade, this is the pad for you. If not, get Hawk HPS.
