Has anyone tried the Hawk 5.0 pads? I'm doing an HPDE in June and will be needing to upgrade my brakes. Did you change the rotors as well or just get them turned?
Hawk pads are fine on the street but won't really cut it for HPDE, especially once you start getting the hang of it and going faster and braking harder.
I recommend Carbotech or G-Loc pads, since you can swap between street and track pads on the same rotor. You should always resurface or replace rotors when changing to a new pad manufacturer.
You will also definitely want to flush out all your DOT3 brake fluid and replace with DOT4, something like Motul RBF600 or similar.
