Default What pads should i use for perrin willwood?

I just bought a used perrin willwod kit and the pads are mostly shot. What do you recomend. I have DBA Slotted rotors that are intended for race use not the other cheeper ones, they came off AzScooby's car, with this kit he warped the other two pars of dba he used and they finally told him to use these. Where can I get the pads from and what is a good aggressive street compound pad to use. I will just order track pads when I go to the track. So I am wondering where to get these pads and what brand/compound to use.

I've had good luck with Carbotech Bobcats on my STi. Not sure if they have an application for your setup though.

Thumbs up Carbotech Bobcats

A good friend of mine got a nice new swanky set of 6-pot Wilwoods and after driving for a couple of days on the pads that it came with, took the brand new pads out and put in the Carbotech Bobcats. He was much happier with the pedal modulation and feel after getting rid of the Wilwood pads; said they felt too much like the Axxis pads with the hard initial bite then large fall-off afterwards.

We can supply with both street and race friction for your calipers. Shoot me an email if you're interested in pricing.

Thanks,

I use Hawk HPS or HP+ in my wilwoods when i drove onthe street with them.
I was happy with them, didn't dust excessively, not noisy, and good stopping power. they wore well and were easy on my rotors, but were not up for ANY track duty, i'd destroy them in about 3 laps if i forgot to swap them out.
