    That's a pretty good deal for all four.

    I'm running Brembo drilled n slotted in the front and Brembo slotted in the rears on my 95 Accord. I just installed some Hawk HPS pads at all four corners, and it stops like a dream. Plus, the pads don't dust one bit, and there's no brake noise. I'm completely happy with my setup. Next up: some new calipers, steel lines and some DOT4 fluid. :)

    i can vouch for the hawk hp+ also, i'm using them on my 13" wilwoods, they are mad sticky :D this weekend i'll be at the road course again, this time i get to try my Hawk Blacks, which are supposed to be almost as aggressive as the blue's :)

    EDIT: for a great price on hawk pads, go to RaceShopper.com, tell them Mike Outland sent you ;)

    describes all hawk pads

    basically the blacks are less harsh on the rotors, but not as torqy. the blues will make your rotors last as long as the pads do :p supposed to be the best for road racing though

    the blues also need to be warmed up to work right..... so on the street when your not constantly on the brakes hard they are going to suck ass.... race pads are usually loud as hell too

    I paid $100 shipped for all 4 corners for Hawk HPS (not to be confused with HP+) pads.

    yes, as do the blacks... neither should be used on the street at all, strictly race pads.

    for street, hawk hp+, and if street is all you're doing, then your stock brakes are fine, pads make a huge difference :)

    About the EBC's, I have them on my back and am not totally impressed with them. They are alright but nothing spictacular. Also, they are not making full contact with the rotor, it is leaving a decent patch of rust on the insides of the rotor.

    :withstupid:
    the HP+'s have a rediculous amount of grip
    i love mine
    if your just doing street driving though id probly suggest the HPS pads ... a little less agressive and a little easier on the rotors
    hawk makes a very nice pad :thumbsup:

    It was a toss-up for me between the HP+ and HPS, I went with the HPS to try to decrease noise and dust.
