Hawk or Greenstuff

3917 Views 27 Replies 18 Participants Last post by  hypersprite

Like so many others I've had enough of the dust that the standard brake pads produce so am going to get the fronts replaced. I believe either Hawk or Greestuff are the ones to get.

So my question is which one? I've been told the Greemstuff pads will cost me around $200 for the front pair. I don't know what the Hawks are worth.

Any experiemce with these?

Sorry if this is a little off topic... but:
a. How often do you wash your car? For me it's usually every Sat morning, so I don't really care if the pads are dusty, they look fine every weekend anyway :)

b. No one's mentioned RB74s? I remember putting Ferodo 3000 on my ITR, and being very unhappy with them on the road (and not that happy on the track to be honest). But I always came back to RB74s for both road and track use. May they are too old now, I dunno... having had the Jeep for two years I have not followed what's been happening with brakes :) If I've missed something, please enlighten me.

Also from memory, you could give your stock pads to RaceBrakes and they'd recoat them with their stuff, to save like $80 per corner.
Just checked with RaceBrakes in Melbourne, and they have a few sets of front RB74s for the Brembos for $181.00

Bloody good value in my books!!! :)
