IL race pad recomendation- FD with street (s03) tires

I need to order pads for the FD for my first NASA event in July. I have previously ran hawk blues front and HP+ rears, I was running r-comp RA'1 tires and stock FD brakes.

I am now running pettit big brakes front, stock rears on S03 tires, which hawk pads do you recommend front and rear?

Please keep in mind this will be my first NASA HPDE event so I am not sure how hard I will be pushing it. I have HPS pads front and rear now so keeping those is not an option for the weekend.

Thanks....

Are these just for the track weekend? If so, go with front like a PFC 01 or Hawk DTC 60 and a rear like theHawk HT-10.

If you are going to be driving these on the street as well, go with some HP+'s

I've ran Hawk DTC60's front and rear the last two track days at Gingerman, great pads. Took 1-2 hot laps to really get them in the proper temp range. Combined with a 285 r comp up front it felt like I was going to go through the windshield everytime I hit the brakes.

I'd do DTC 60s front and rear also. They are a nice easy pad to learn on as well as push hard well into intermediate and advanced levels.

If someone is interested in some lightly used HT10 pads, I have a set I'd like to sell. Now that I no longer track the FD, they are just gathering dust...

I am pretty sold on the DTC 60's in the front, can't decide between those and HT10's in the rear?

Can't go wrong with either. I've switched back and forth between the two several times. I have a set of brand new HT-10's I'll sell if you decide to go that route. Cheaper than anywhere else sells new. I deploy again and won't be using them before probably the end of the year 2013.
