Hawk HPS on all 4 corners = Win

God damn does the car ever stop right now!! I need stickier tires to utilise the braking power. When driving to K/W sunday night, I had to drop anchor due to speed trap, and damn, it just slows right down like no tommorow. Definately recommended for anyone serious about stopping on the street

^ On the brake pad topic, does anyone have any input/opinions on PBR's line.
ie. Deluxe, Metal Masters or Ceramic?

That's nothing. I have fit 6 wheels with on the back seat, and another 4 bare wheels crammed into passenger side, and four tires in the trunk.
