DR97 (‘J’ Compound Code)
Excellent static and dynamic coecient of friction. Smooth linear torque. Low pad and rotor wear. For use in drag racing.
MT 4 (‘L’ Compound Code)
Medium/High torque and temperature compound with medium/high initial bite. For circle track cars under 2800 lbs without high deceleration rates.
- High initial bite
- Designed for pavement circle track under 2800 lbs
- Designed for applications not needing high deceleration rates
Optimal Range: 500° – 1000°
Min/Max Temp: 400° – 1200°
Metallic (‘MB’ Compound Code)
High torque with linear in-braking characteristics across temperature ranges, allowing the driver to brake harder, longer without sacrificing the life of the pad.
HT-10 (‘S’ Compound Code)
Intermediate to high torque with a smooth initial bite. Very consistent pedal feel. Excellent modulation and release characteristics.
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.
