Wow, switched from EBC to Hawks

Well Iíll start by saying I feel pretty foolish. Iíve been running EBC yellows and reds for years and have been promoting them to everyone including people on this site. I run time trials, and HPDEs and have always been the only guy running them and have ignored everyone telling me to switch to Raybestos or Hawks. Well I finally switched to Hawk 70s and I am in utter shock how effective these are. I spent the warm up lap tapping the brakes in complete disbelief. These require half the braking effort to lock up my 255 square Hoosier setup. At no point do I have less braking power than traction. Couldnít be more impressed.
