Hawk Performance's HP Plus brake pad compound is ideal for Autocross and Track Day drivers looking for a high performance race compound that can take the heat of the track and get you home safely without having to change the pads.

HP Plus utilizes a unique Ferro-Carbon, high-tech friction material that was developed and manufactured for sport driving in autocross, Solo II and track day applications. The Ferro-Carbon formulation offers lower wear rates and higher torque values than other competitive materials.

Extremely high coefficient of friction makes HP Plus the perfect upgrade over stock for high performance streetcars used in autocross competition or that experience repetitive, heavy braking.

Key Features:
Extremely High Friction Output
Fade Resistant
Worthy for Autocross & Club Racing Events
Warning! Due to the dramatic friction levels produced by this product to achieve "race-level" braking, rotor wear, noise, dust, and pad life may be affected.




not recommended for daily driving
stuntman000004534 6 months ago
so i bought these after a lot of research for a daily driven wrx with brembo swap with dba 4000 series rotors. 2days on it now and i decided to take off and go for something else because of the excessive noise levels it make everytime i come to a stop. it is so annoying that i decided to take off. but the important thing as the manufacturer says these are track pads and they are meant to be that way. initial bite was superb and brake pedal response is so good that i hate to take them out.

Great track pads!

I took my 2015 STI to a local track day event. Having a Stage 2 setup in the power department, I decided to upgrade the stock Brembo pads to the Hawks HP+. I upgraded the brake lines and changed fluids to Motul to go along with these pads. I'm glad I did! Its got strong, initial bite. Its braking power was consistently strong as you apply the brake pedals further down. Very good stopping power over stock. I did not experience brake fade and was consistent throughout my track time (20 mins x 5 sessions). Downside... lots of brake dusts and noisy! And since this has higher braking performance, this may put more wear on your stock rotors. So I would not recommend these as your daily driver brake pads. Overall, I'm very pleased with these as my track day pads!

Great stoping power

had these pads front and rears with slotted rotors for a week now they stop very good, break-in was easy, but they have some noise at slow speeds approaching lights and stop signs. Over would be great for autocross and light race use.

Excellent track day pads

Great buy! I use these pads for my track set up, solid bite and stopping power over OEM. Not recommended for use in daily driving unless you want a yo man, fix your brakes look every time you squeal to a stop at a light. Unfortunately, not everyone understands or appreciates track cars like us serious drivers do.

good pad

i bought these as an autox / light trackday brake pad, being thats what their intended use is for. my intention was also to leave them installed on the street if they were suitable for that too.... they have fantastic initial bite, and during a trackday at streets of willow, they held up just fine. they also, of course hold up to brisk canyon driving. however, like everyone elses review, they dust immensely and squeal like hell stopping at normal city speeds. its an okay compromise, but i ended up purchasing stoptech posiquiets for street-only use. i will continue using the HP+ for trackdays only, but might try their other higher spec pads next time.

    will this fits my 07 WRX STI Spec C JDM? Thx and regards

    • A: Unfortunately we cannot confirm fitment on non-USDM models. These pads will work with the 2007 WRX STI USDM models that have the stock Brembo kit. You will want to check and verify that your vehicle uses this same kit and that the brake pad shape is the same.
