Yeah not sure myself, I have used Hawks on my terminator at Autobahn and my FRC vette and never had an issue. Not sure what EBC has done to boost their market share but it shows on our side like crazy.that's interesting. i don't know anyone that uses EBC for road racing. Well, mostly the import guys I'm talking about.
Had the same problem with Hawk pads with severe fade, when I used them on my 3650+ LB Cobra. They might work fine on a small, light car, but they sucked on the Cobra.I'm not a fan of HP+'s if you're an advanced driver or have a car heavier than 3,000 lbs. They worked awesome in my EG hatch (2100 lbs/150ish whp) but not so awesome in my S2000 (2900 lbs/ stock hp). They last about 3-4 laps before they fade. Pace is about high 1:48's at Gingerman as an example.
What Hawk pads were you using? DTC-60-70's would fair better with your set-up. Definitely would recommend a pad that's 1500 degrees and higher for V8 cars.Had the same problem with Hawk pads with severe fade, when I used them on my 3650+ LB Cobra.

My opinion is to not screw around and just get the Carbotech's.
