May 18, 2008

I bought a 4 corner DBA 4000 set to replace my worn out stocks. Since installation, my 300 miles includes the two blocks I drive to work each day and 1 trip from Miami to Sebring International Raceway.



I ve run Hawk Blues and H10s for over a year on the stock Mini rotors and wanted to improve brake fade resistance. The problem with the DBA rotors in my application is that the drilled holes quickly filled with the pad material, preventing proper cooling which then caused overheating and slight cracking on some of the drilled holes. Some holes were completely filled, looking as shiny as the rest of the rotor: the material had melted under heat stress and been smoothed over by the rest of the pad. After they cooled sufficiently, I pulled off the rim and used an allen wrench to clear the holes.



After my second session, when I pulled into the pits and stopped, they were so hot that the pad stuck to the rotor. The holes were filled again. Thinking there may be a master cylinder issue causing the sticking, I checked the calipers for fluid pressure (they were fine) then waited for them to cool before pumping the pedal and reversing to unstick them. Due to this heat buildup, I went through a set of HT10 front pads over 3 30m sessions, something I ve never done with flat stock before.



As far as I am concerned, these are definitely not track quality products and should never be used with more than a street pad.

I have had 2 sets of HT-10s on my Mini. The second set delaminated after a 2-day DE event. Hawk has recommended that I step up to their DTC-60 pad. If you drive hard at a heavy-braking track, do not use this pad with the stock floating caliper.

Not for street use, the Hawk HT-10 s on the front with HP+ on the rear provided excellent, fade-resistant stopping power for more than 600 miles of track use. Awesome combination for a lightweight, FWD vehicle.
