HPS stands for High Performance Street, and that’s what these Hawk disc brake pads deliver for the Corvette owner: They’re designed to improve stopping power over factory brakes without introducing unwanted characteristics that can appear with more aggressive pad compounds. We’re talking about dust, noise and increased rotor wear – things that might be acceptable at the track, but that daily-driver Corvettes can do without.
Hawk pads are a Vette Lab go-to for increasing stopping power on street-legal vehicles, and the Street HPS braking compound does a great job of combining improved performance with good street manners. The net result is between 20-40% more stopping power and higher resistance to brake fade than conventional replacement pads. That last part is critical -- the fade reduction means you can still take these pads out for a high-performance driving event or a good canyon run and maintain better pedal feel and more consistent performance.
