Question Brake pads for 930 Question

I am getting closer to finishing up my project car.
new member 930 project
I am going to need to start picking up some brake parts soon.

Any suggestions for brake pads? The car will be street driven, but I will do some track events with it on the weekends.

Thanks in advance.

Brendon

I have Hawk HPS (HPS = high performance street) on mine and they are great. They don't squeak, I havn't noticed any brake dust on the wheels and you don't have to get them hot to stop quickly. They're really good street pads.

I got them here because they had the best prices and a large selection.
Hawk Brake Pads - HPS, HP Plus, Ceramic, SuperDuty, LTS, Black, Blue 9012, HT10, HT14, DTC60, DTC70 at deep discounts!

I've used the Hawk HP+ on a BMW and they're good too but you have to do a few stops and heat the pads up a little to get the best braking action. After that they work really good.
They may be a better choice if you track the car and drive it on the street.

I just switched from Hawk HT-10 to PFC97 and did a track weekend and use them on the street as well. No need to change them out after the event as they run fine on the street.
Cold and Rain does not alter their stopping ability too much at all on the street. But they do squeal upon stopping from 10mph and under. Kind of embarassing at a traffic light.
Like with any racing pad, dust on the rims is an issue too. So you gotta wash the wheels alot to keep them clean.
On track they worked fine, no fade issues noticed, and they wore very little in 2 days of track driving. Good value for the money.

+1, I put Hawk HPS pads on both my 930 & VW GTI and the VW's soft brakes were improved so much I don't think I'd ever use anything else...

+2 on the Hawk HPS for the street. No track time on them for me but they feel great for street driving

How serious are you about the track?

How hard are you going to push it?

I am running pagid yellow RS29s on my 77 track car with turbo brakes and they are superb. Despite the fact that they are a race compound, they also have reasonable low temperature bite so are good on the street. They will haul you down from 100 mph to the speed limit in no time.

My vote would be to pony up a few extra bucks and get the Pagid yellow RS29s.
