Hawk Performance Brake Pads

Whether you drive in spirited fashion through canyon switchbacks or pull 20,000 lbs over 4,000-foot summits, Hawk Performance has engineered the right pad friction compound for your street performance goals. Using a properly performing brake system, you'll enjoy the peace of mind in knowing that your vehicle will safely stop each and every time.
Hawk HP Plus Performance Brake Pads
Hawk Performance's HP Plus brake pad compound is ideal for Autocross and Track Day drivers looking for a high performance race compound that can take the heat of the track and get you home safely without having to change the pads.
HP Plus utilizes a unique Ferro-Carbon, high-tech friction material that was developed and manufactured for sport driving in autocross, Solo II and "track day" applications. The Ferro-Carbon formulation offers lower wear rates and higher torque values than other competitive materials.
Extremely high coefficient of friction makes HP Plus the perfect upgrade over stock for high performance streetcars used in autocross competition or that experience repetitive, heavy braking.

Steel Braided Brake Lines

If you are looking for a heavy-duty alternative to standard brake lines, consider upgrading to steel braded lines.
UUC Stainless Steel Brake Lines
Original brake lines are rubber and can expand under the normal pressure of use. This expansion of the brake line negatively affects the brake caliper piston travel, and makes for mushy pedal feedback.

UUC's Stainless Steel Brake lines are used to "performance tune" your braking system.

Inner Teflon line is covered with woven stainless steel braid that will not expand under pressure. The advantages include better brake pedal feedback and a firmer pedal, along with superior brake modulation. Results will be immediate.

    Technical features:
  • fully compliant with DOT Standards (MVSS-1006)
  • lines burst-tested to 6000psi (maximum tested pressure from a BMW braking system is 1200psi)
  • Teflon inner line covered with a woven layer of stainless steel and covered in an abrasion-resistant material (translucent blue plastic covering).
  • plastic end pieces protect assembly, no exposed steel fibers to stick fingers.
