What is this discussion about?
Ford Shelby GT500, Performance Mods, Coupe
Article comments for Project Mustang GT vs. Shelby GT500, Part 1 - We began with our long-term 2005 Mustang project car, long since retired from our test fleet. Then we put together a list of parts and suppliers. Our mission: Build a Mustang that could top the GT500's performance for about $5,000 less than the Shelby's retail price. (more)
Project Mustang GT vs. Shelby GT500, Part 2 - "I'll tell you one thing, there's nothing like building up an old automobile from scratch and wiping out one of these Detroit machines. That'll give you a set of emotions that'll stay with you. Know what I mean?" (more)

I am a Hawk Dealer and yes I know they are different compounds. Read my guide on edmunds guides it goes a bit more in depth on HPs HP+ Hawk Blue, etc.

Then what is the DOT edgecode for the HPS? I heard it is FE. HP+, Pagid Black, Cobalt GT-Sport, and Ferodo DS2500 are all GG edgecode pads that do well on the street and (light) track. HPS are what I put on my mother's TL-S and I wish I had used Axxis/PBR Ultimates instead. I believe the HPS have a fade critical temp of around 750-800F.

I'm not sure of the DOT edgecodes, however HPs is what we've been putting on Subarus (100s and 100s) for street, auto-x, and an occasional track day.
HP+ is what we use for people more interested in track days and hard street driving with the disadvantage of more dust and noise.
On our race car, we use Hawk Blues which need to be heated up or you will kill your rotors.
