That is sometimes a good thing.

Yeah, I was going to say... When I swapped to the Wilwood front kit, with the aggressive street pads, the bias was way front happy, so I went really aggressive in the back with Hawk HP whatever then the back was stepping out early so I went down to a Greenstuff and the balance seems about perfect.

just me but it is worth a call to carbotech/hawk they should talk to you about what would be best for the type of driving thatg you are going to do. from my experience carbotech was very help dan puskar talked to me for about 20 min so that they could get me in to a pad that would fit my driving

I also found the green stuff to be lacking . They would last a few turns longer than stock on our down hill brake test " track " , Tuna Canyon , and then fade badly. I have the Ferodo 2500 and I am very happy with there performance and minimal noise for a semi race pad.
