Well I guess that I ordered the wrong pads then. I
purchased the HPS in hopes of using them initially for
the track event, and then for regular driving with
whatever was left. I guess that I will order another set
of them to take along with me. And if I don't use the
extra set I will put them on my wife's S6. This is my
first track event, so I don't really know what to
expect. I also changed my brake fluid to the ATE Super
Blue. The only other racing I've done has been
autocrosses, which hardly uses the brakes at all simply
because the runs are so short.

Thanks for all the feedback about the outboard clips. I
will hang on to them so that if I have any pads in the
future that accept them, I can put them on.
