Better brakes

Update by David S. Wallens to the Honda Civic Si project car

We did notice something at yesterday’s autocross: Our brakes didn’t feel so hot. Now that we have some good tires and shock absorbers under us, we think the brakes feel a little mushier than they should. This was even noticable on the way home, as the pedal just felt soft—real soft.

Solution? New Hawk Performance pads are on the way, and they’ll join the Civic along with some fresh rotors and brake fluid. If Hawk can make pads capable of stopping a Nextel Cup car from 200 mph, they should be just fine for us.
