HPS - High Performance Street

The easiest brake upgrade you can do. Hawk's HPS brake pad compound will greatly increase the stopping power of your Mustang compared to a stock replacement compound.

Best Use

  • Street driving, autocrossing, daily commuting
  • Light open-tracking: Will last much longer than stock pads, but will overheat and fade sooner than the HP-Plus or race pads.


  • 20-40% more stopping power than standard pads, for greatly reduced stopping distances
  • High coefficient of friction and high brake torque, whether cold or hot
  • Increased resistance to brake fade
  • Excellent cold stopping ability
  • Easy on the rotor, causes virtually no grooving and slow rotor wear
  • Quiet, essentially as noise-free as stock pads
  • Low dusting in regular use
  • Excellent pad life

  • Hawk's HP-Plus brake compound will greatly increase the stopping power of your Mustang, especially when autocrossed competitively, or open-tracked.
  • Although not a race pad, the temperature rating of the HP-Plus compound makes them suitable for open-tracking.
  • Has good stopping ability when cold.
  • Allows driving your track Mustang to the track, on track, and back home, without changing pads.

Best Use

  • Autocrossing or open-tracking a Mustang that is only occasionally street-driven
  • When open-tracking, the HP-Plus compound lasts much longer than the HPS compound, but will overheat and fade sooner than a race compound.

Warning: The aggressive friction material of the HP-Plus compound causes significant noise that most people find unsuitable for frequent street use. Also expect increased dust and greater rotor wear.


  • Much more stopping power than the HPS compound, stopping your Mustang in an even shorter distance.
  • Very high coefficient of friction and very high brake torque when hot.
  • Cold braking bite is slightly less than HPS compound, but the HP-Plus compound is still acceptable for street use.
  • Increased temperature capacity over the HPS pad reduces onset of brake fade.

Blue 9012

  • Hawk's entry-level road race compound
  • Provides low to medium brake torque
  • Best for pad temperatures of 250°F to 1,000°F
  • Excellent brake release characteristics

Not for street use; this is a track-only pad. In street use this compound will not come up to temperature, causing poor stopping and extremely rapid rotor wear. We have seen the rotor surface wear down past the gas slots in only 100 miles of street use.
