Default Which Pads ?

I am doing solo 2 in a 2005 WRX Wagon, 3 inch cat back, F/R Cobb Sway bars, I have also found I can upgrade the pads. Recommendations please.

Regards

I think the high performance brake pad selection for the 04-05 WRX is a little limited. I've looked into it myself and I've heard good things about the performance of the Carbotech Bobcats, but some people say they can be noisy on the street. The other option is the EBC Red Stuff which I think has a 04-05 specific pad. There new "low dust-low wear" formulation is quite new so there isn't that much information about it.

I was told at my Solo 1 course that Hawk and Performance Friction are the way to go.

Hawk HP+ would be a great recommendation, but I've checked on this before and I'm pretty sure they don't make them for the 04-05 WRX.

I'm pretty sure you would benefit from having a track only set of pads and a street only set. Sure its work to swap them, but after a couple of times you'll have it down pat. I ran Porterfield R4S pads and they were poor when cold (bad for street) and poor when hot (bad for track). I think its a no win compromise.

Get porterfield R4S, or Ferodo DS2500 or PFC Rally compounds for something really serious. Those are in order of price and wickedness.
