Wilwood brake pad choices. Looking to upgrade

Looking to upgrade the brake pads that came with the Wilwood brake kit. The current pads are the BP-10's and is great for the street, but when I was on the track it felt like they lost there bite only after a lap or two. When I was on the Nurburg ring I could only get to around the 15 kilometer mark before the brakes started to feel really spongy.

I'm looking at the BP-20 or the Compound "C" pads. Let me know what you think. The brake fluid I'm using is ATE Super Blue at the moment and the rear pads are Hawk hp's. The pads will be on the car full time. Will try to hit the track atleast 1-3 times a month, more if I can.

I found out I can replace the pads with Hawk brake pads. So how about putting in Hawk HP+'s front and maybe the Hawk Black pads for the rear to give more rear bias?


I'm also going to see if I can find some Castrol SRF brake fluid around here.

I dont have anything to contribute, but I did want to tell you how jealous I am that you have access to the Nurburg ring.
