I ended up ordering a set of front HP10's from RaceShopper.com. $157 for the set. I guess I'll stick with factory pads for the rear... Hawk's not yet making rear pads.
I'm going to give these a shot first... I agree that if they shatter it's bad news, but I'm hoping they would have made some improvements in the last 8 years. Regardless, I'll give them a call and see what they say. Maybe next year I'll get the Pagids. I'm still in sticker shock from buying the car, the invizi-bra, the laser jammer, the track tires, etc. etc.
