Default Hawk, PFC or Pagid - What do you use?

Since we started NaroEscape Motorsports last year, it's been interesting to see what people like/dislike for brakes. We sell all three brands, (HERE) but I'm curious what the crowd hear uses and on what car.

We use Hawk DTC-70 front, HT-10 rear on our two 914 race cars at the moment.

Others?

Ive probably used them all, at least all the brands. Ive liked the PFC11s, and just behind them, the pagid back RS14s. (good luck with the HT10s and HT14s hawks as well as DTC70s)
personally, stay away from the endurance pads unless you are actually doing an enduro, or need better life from a pad with dual street and track use.

On the 964, I use a combination of Orange and Black. Seems to be a good mix.

I've used Hawk for many years when I had 944's (DTC70's front, 60's rear). Had planned on running that combo with the new SPB car, but they don't make them currently (they do make 70's for the rear and 60's for the front). So instead, I'm running 60's front and blues in the rear.

Hey Tim
When did you start driving a Boxster? Did you get rid of the 944?

Sold off the LS3 944 almost 2 years ago. Started building the SPB last spring, first race was last fall at NOLA.

Full on track car, PFC 01s probably the best track pad I've used but they wore down quick and were very harsh on rotors. However, their bite and consistent stopping power, very confidence inspiring taking turns deeper and deeper.

If just DE'ing the season, found Pagids to work well and last a decent amt of time without obliterating my rotors.

Does the Hawk dust on the newer pads turn to an unremovable cement-like substance if it gets wet like it did on the old Hawk blues?

It seems to depend on the wheels. Personally we ran Blues forever on our race car and had no issues - yes, lots of dust but came off pretty easy. Then used them on our street/track car with aftermarket painted wheels and even dry, it etched into the paint and never came off. Moved to DTC-70/HT-10 when the car got faster and never had a problem on any wheels. Most SCCA guys we sell to love Blue's and have no issues with dust. So mixed messages.

FYI, we are working on carrying Carbotech soon.
