Any one use KFP Gold Pads?

Are these pads any good for heavy track use? Compare to Pagid Orange, Performance Friction PF97 or Hawk Blues.

Thanks
Tristan

I used them and loved them. Good feel, no fade with proper venting, and they were easy on my rotors. The pagid and hawks may stop a bit quicker, but they destroy rotors.

Thumbs up

I've been using KFP Gold's the last several DE's. They're good pads on my '77 911. I had used Pagid Orange exclusively for several years and the KFP's seem just as good. Bed the KFP's in thoroughly. In six years of DE addiction, I had never experienced "green fade" before; the KFP's rectified that on my second or third lap with them! Rather exciting. Luckily there was a nice run-off area at the end of that particular straight! I think they would have been fine if I'd followed the bedding instructions, which I didn't. Since then, I've used them at two more weekends and, IMHO, they've performed as well as Pagid Orange.

Used them on my 65 for many many years - before they were called something different -- Kool Kevlar pads. They are great - used them in POC cup racing on my light 911 and never faded. They are a deal, and work wonderfully even on stock solid rotors.

Hey Everybody

I have been a long-time user of KFP pads and was having trouble finding them online so I added them to my inventory. If you're looking for a set they can be found by following the link in my sig.

See you at the track!
