We have tested the Hawk HPS 5.0 on our in-house Type R, and we cannot recommend a better all around brake pad. This will be an improvement over the OE pads, while being virtually silent and producing less brake dust. These pads also have a great resistance against heat, on top of their low operating temperatures which truly makes it the ideal pad for spirited daily driving and light track use. This pad is recommended for those who do about 1-2 track days on a smaller track, not ideal for a high speed track.
The new pads are Ferro-Carbon compound brake pads that provide advanced braking characteristics to enhance the driving experience. This new compound combines the safety and quality of aerospace design partnered with the braking technology of motorsports. The results are shorter stopping distances, improved performance under heavy braking conditions and street car friendly characteristics.
