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.
