Racing Brake ET Pads

So I'm about to order the Racing Brake BBK however haven't been able to find any member feedback on their ET-XXX pads. This car is still my daily driver however I hit the track 6-7 times a year and am able to fade the stock rotors/Porterfield R4/Motul combo (especially at Laguna Seca and Buttonwillow). I still run street tires (Toyo T1R's) but probably won't step up to competition tires until next year. Does anyone have firsthand experience with the setup I am going towards (Racing Brake BBK/street tires) and able to recommend a pad? I'm usually too lazy to change them at the track

Look into the Hawk DTC-70 pads that available for this kit. Really good torque and feedback. I saw slight fade at a local brake heavy track, but they came back quick after a one lap cool down.

No experience with the ET-700 through 900 series but from what people are saying they're okay.

Also, Cobalt pads are available for the fronts. Will be running the XR-2s to see how they gel with the DTC-70 rears. Really high torque pads, definitely not a street pad.

You mind telling me your setup? Track tires? HP-level? I'm just trying to gauge if your fade with the DTC70's is because your car is so much faster than mine

Yup, your car is way faster than mine. I'm pretty much intake, exhaust, and a 80k mile OEM turbo that only boosts up to 10lbs on a good day. I don't think I'd be able to fade the DTC-70 with my current setup - but I hate changing pads so early in the morning....

Then start off with ET-500/700, good street/track day setup.

I'm going to try out the ET800. The specs are saying they are good for repeated stops from 120mph and temps around 1400F. I don't have brake/rotor temp data but my data logger tells me I regularly hit 110~115 on the straights to all of the tracks I go to. I'll be at Sears Point next month but the real test will be at Laguna Seca in April and Buttonwillow in May.

So apparently I was in the wrong section about RB ET-XXX pad information. And to really **** on my parade, the RacingBrake BBK doesn't fit under 17" Enkei RPF-01
