Track pad recommendation for 981
Looking for a track pad recommendation for 2014 Cayman S for DE events. The car is a daily driver and I will put my street pads back on for when in daily use.

Stock setup with PASM.

Thanks in advance.

RE: Track pad recommendation for 981
If you’re a beginner, just stick with stock Porsche pads until you’re beyond Green and 1/2 way thru Blue and almost in White. If you’re in White or above, it depends what kind of pedal feel you want. One of the best endurance pads out there are the PAGID yellows (RS19 or RS29 I can’t remember). But if you want a stronger initial bite, then go with the Pagid Blacks (RS14), which are less expensive but they will eat rotors a little quicker. There are a bunch of other good track pads out there too (PFC, Hawk, etc.). Whatever you decide, just use the same pads front/rear. Some people like to mix and match but the Porsche already has brake bias built in front vs. rear so keep them the same.

Marty thanks. Yea i'm in white but have not tracked my cayman, only my 911 which I used hawk blues on which were great pads. Hawk has alot of different tack pads and i 'm curious what other cayman drivers are using.

Hawk Blues would stick to automotive paint I have heard. So, I used to use the Hawk HT10's. They worked really well until they got really thin and started to disintegrate, but I used them for years.
