Yeah, that was the first thing I decided. The Hawk HT-10s are only rated to about 1300F, so I ordered some new pads through Ken at KNS brakes. We are putting Carbotech XP12s in the front (2000F+) and XP10 in the rear (1600F+). Hopefully putting track pads at all 4 wheels and some more serious compounds will solve this problem, but I will also try the shield mod to get some extra air flow at the brakes.
