For the street, I agree, the HPS is the way to go. On my UrS6 with the 996
non turbo monoblocks I find very little dust and no appreciable noise. I had
the HP+ pads on during the ACNA event at Second Creek last month and while
they had considerably more stopping power and modulated well on the track,
they made miss piggy squeal at irritatingly high decibels on the street. I
changed back to the HPS real quick.

I ordered the HPS. I definitely don't want the Blues on this car
that may never see the track. Thanks again.
