Prepping my daily Si coupe for the SCCA National Time Trial at PittRace next month. Was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for available track pads for the Si.

Thanks

When I used to do events in my last Si, all I used was rotors and pads by StopTech, added stainless steel brake lines, and the high temp racing brake fluid. Literally held up amazing for me and never once experienced brake-fade. Few hundred bucks for all that worked out great vs buying a full BBK. Just my $0.02 cents tho ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I have a hard time believing StopTech pads would hold up to a TT session.

see if Project MU or Carbotech make pads (i'm only experienced with subaru track pads.. not sure about civic availability). Keep in mind that dedicated track pads should NOT be used on the streets. they wont perform well when cold and they'll squeal like a mofo.

I contacted G-Loc and they confirmed they will make pads for the Si with any of their compounds if you order directly from them. I bought G-Loc R10 for the front and R8 for the rear.

Can vouch for the Hawk HPS 5.0 pads for the Si. However i've been going to more track days and have been getting faster, and so i think i might need something even more aggressive. Hawk makes an HP+ pad, but they dont seem to be available for the Si.

Any info on EBC bluestuff? I figure the EBC yellowstuff is probably on par with the HPS 5.0 compound.
