Default What's the best source for track brake pads?

I'm just barely fast enough at the track that the Hawk ceramic pads aren't cutting it anymore.

Need a good source for the best price on Raybestos track pads.

Am looking at the 41 and 43 combo...if any are running these pads can you suggest the best front/rear combo too please.

Check out the C5 parts for sale and the Road Race autocross sections of the forum. A lot of times the vendors will post their sales there. Otherwise just Google the part numbers of the pads you want. In the past, I have found some extremely good deals on parts from small out of the way shops that are not forum advertisers.

There are plenty of guys using them, but Raybestos is so big they don't have reps marketing them on web sites such as this one so you just don't hear much about them. It's the exclusive brake pad of NASCAR, so their racing expertise is extensive. Another secret is that they make pads for at least one high-end brake product manufacturer.
