Randy, the bite is better than what?

All the others I have used so far.  Stock pads, Hawk HPS, PBR Ceramic, TRW and Textar.

I also agree with Josh, street pads for the street, race pads for the track.

Normally I'd agree with you and Josh on that, but I have found at least one exception.  DS2500s are not considered street pads, and they are just fine on the street IMO.

wow. didn't mean to stir anything up. NHMS is pretty easy on brakes compared to other places. So i think i will just stick with what i have for now. It works and still within my driving ability (w/ street tires). Maybe once i get better i will find the need for more pad than i have now.

I do want to bring in the Jetta at some point so you can take a look at the suspension & steering. I just feel there needs to be some general tightening up.

Yeah, it's a year later.  :P  Randy, I'll send you an email and we can pick a day, etc.
