Yep, good guys, and fast shipping.... although the ordering process is a little cumbersome

Don't know if they are the cheapest but Pegasus Racing in Wisconsin has always been super helpful.

Just another data point.

Much better pads and worth the extra $s.

Damian I don't know how your getting all that clued on medal off. I was using those pads on my first CYM and it would take hours to get the stuff off the sides of the car plus they would start to chunk up pretty early and tear the rotors up.

i tried performace friction pads, good pads, but i liked the blues better, seemed to have a better and more consitent pedal feel.

and as far as teh messy blue dust, yeah its foul stuff, but its a track car, so i dont mind if i dont get it all off :-)

You are one hard core ****

Did you use the 01 pads? They polish the rotors, are easy to clean, and have lots of bite.

When you get it figured out let me know

Seriously the PFC will have much better release characteristics than the blues. I think Brad was using 01s but I'm going to email him because they are finally looking a bit thin and I also need to know what he had in the rear and possibly go with something that has a little less bite for the rear.

i ran the last event at MAM with no ABS and blues up front, jspec rs/rz compund in the rear...car felt great, had to really pay attention to the pedal modualtion with no abs, but as you see in teh latest 4 mam videos, the car was breaking better than just about everything else..including all the high end porsches ;-)

hawk is seriously trash, we used to run them. never again, they eat rotors and don't offer the bite or thelongevity of the PFC's. There's a reason every nascar team, almost every alms team, and the majority of grand am teams run PFC's.
