Do a search, opinions are everywhere. PFC, Carbotech, Hawk are all options.

I was a Hawk user for years, in IT and Showroom. At the suggestion of several SM'ers, I switched to Carbotech when I converted my '99. A big improvement, at least for my driving style- the modulation under threshold braking is much better. Seems like they are living longer as well, although that's often a function of where you race.

If I remember correctly, XP8 front and XP10 rears. I'll double check next time I'm in the garage.

Give the guys at Carbotech a call. They'll be glad to discuss you needs and solutions.

XP10 front and XP8 rears is recommended as a starting point by Carbotech. Saferacer (site sponsor) carriers their pads and offers a 10% discount to SM racers.
