Brake pad stagger.

I'm in the market for some track pads for my FC, and like I normally do I'm most likely over thinking everything.... But I was just wondering what all the FC guys are running pad-wise.

I was planning on running a DTC60/DTC30 setup buy came across this graph... and that stagger seems pretty extreme. I'm tempted to try a DTC60/HT-10 stagger.



any thoughts?

I used to run Blues all around but tried the DTC60 front and rear last race with a Tilton prop valve and had no complaints. Never tried the DTC 60/HT10 combo but do have a brand new set of HT10 rears I can ship you for $75.

I called Hawk yesterday and they said to run the HT-10s on the back with the tone of voice that implied I was stupid for even considering the DTC-30s haha

so I went and ordered a set... $220 for both front and rears is not bad at all though . My brother pays more than that for just his front carbotechs (on an s2000 that goes through more rotors than brake pads)...

I'll let you know about those rear HT-10s after I try the setup out in about a month

In my experience (S2000), the DTCs are a little easier to modulate than the HTs, so I typically run DTCs all around.

what did you run on your s2000? DTC-70/DTC-60?

I've been using a DTC60/30 combo for a while now with no complaints.
