That is awesome that you spoke with ASM and go their input on something you are developing for your own use. Keep up the good work! I absolutely love the IS-11 bumper.

If you want something with similar feel to the HC+800 but with better track life give the Project Mu club racers a try. I have gone through about 3-4 sets of each.
Club Racers are pricey aren't they? I get the HC800 for $80.00
Yeah they are about twice as expensive, but will easily last twice as long under heavy track use. Depends on the track though really. I am guessing you get HC+800 for $80 for a set of fronts? $80 for a full set is crazy talk pricing. I definitely recommend running the same compounds front and rear.

Yea, it was a little hard with communication, but I am happy they are willing to share imput.
It really is my favorite bumper!

I like the sound of orange TEs!

I'm also a fan of the HC+800 pad for how I use my car. I think it will make a decent track pad until you start to get faster and brake harder and later. My only complaint is they dust badly but I don't daily drive the car so it isn't too much of a bother to me.

Yea, I wonder if they still allow them for special order. But its so hard for me to buy wheels, because i would rather buy like straight cut gears or something along those lines!

The HC800, is exactly like you said. A great pad to street, and take to the track. But for that super late brake. I think you can if you dedicate the car to track, but not as reliable. They do have a much much higher temp rating versus other pads in its price range. Even Winmax w4 are only rated to like 640. Brake fade on the track is a disaster, and well... just disappointing. The brake dust is true and apparent when driven really hard. They will cake your wheels, but not at all bad when daily driving. Its scary how good it is, and the noise is pure silence.


I think if i was to dedicate some race pads right now. I would run a carbotech xp10 front & xp8 rear.

Dang pretty badass! You should have had your body guy mold the overfenders into your car so it looks like one piece.
