    I really like the Hawk Blue 9012 pads. Great torque, easy to modulate, not too hard on rotors, last a long time on an Atom. I changed them about twice a year when I was tracking 4-5 days per month.

    My Atoms are gone to new homes ...

    Interesting. I'm still on my original pads (Yes I know....'don't say it) so I'm looking for options.

    Carbotech makes a dandy pad for the Alcon caliper as well. I run XP12's in the rear and XP8's up front. Gobs of bite and very predictible..with excellent brake life.Bit noisy..but I don't mind.. The stock Pagids made my brakes feel like wood! Night and day difference with the Carbotechs.

    The power of an Atom is a terrible thing to waste! Atom owner/operator since 2007. The more you chase perfection,the faster it becomes. John Force for President! (I asked him once in person...he laughed)

    I'll second that.

    Now I can thank Bruce AND Randy for sharing such great experiences with us.
