DTC 60 works over a bit hotter range 400-1600 F compared to 250-1000 for the blues. More important in a heavier car. DTC 60s are a bit harder on the rotors in my experience. Not a really big deal since I toss the rotors at a pad change any way.
I've run the Blues and PFC97. Now I run DTC 60 up front. No complaints. I also believe that the Blue material is being phased out but I can't confirm that. All in all, I think you'll be fine with the 60s.

I've been running Hawk Blues forever and finally switched to DTC60's for the Runoffs. The DTC's have less initial bite, but felt a tad better to modulate. No fade issues and I could brake with anybody. Found the best price at hawkpadsdirect.com.

I tried the DTC-30's and they wore faster than my front 60's. Then we tried an HT-10 on the rear and the front edges chipped....he told me the heat caused that and recommended trying the 60's on the rear. I changed calipers and rotors so we will see.

Looking at my post I might have the 60-30 combo mixed up. Sorry about that I was going by memory. On a side note play with the different combos to figure out what works for your driving style and the tracks you spend most of your time. Keep in mind different car years have different brake bias valves as well. All of these play a big part of what will work for you in the end. Good Luck

I recently switched to the DTC 60's in the front and the DTC 30's in the rear. I switched from the Carbotech's and the initial bite of the Hawk's is higher, so I found it easier to find the lock up point, but the performance is pretty good.

John: how would you compare the DTCs to the Blues? I'm thinking about giving them a try next season if they're priced about the same. Heard it was wet today and they had a fire truck pumping out the corners...

my car came with a new set of Blues when I bought it. I had never run them before (weren't available for my car), they are ok, but I still ordered a set of Raybestos ST43's when it was time to reorder.
ST43's have great feel, good bite and last forever.

I switched from Blues to DTC60's front and rear. I have a 95 and have really liked them ,great modulation and better wear for me. Raceshopper has been the best place to get them from -price and service + NASA contingency helps.
