I have had very good experiences with Hawk, but on a different car.
HT10s self-destructed on me after scoring my rotors during bed-in. I suspect the pads came from a bad batch, which doesn't speak highly to their quality control. It is entirely possible that I exceeded their MOT of 700C as the rotors were at 600C at the paddock. However, my basis for comparison are the RS19 pads, which were subjected to similar temperatures and smoked, but held up and did not literally fall apart.
