Hawk DTC-60 Characteristics. The Hawk DTC-60 offers high torque, excellent modulation and release with less initial bite than the Hawk DTC-70. What makes the Hawk DTC-60 (Hawk production code G) is it's superior release and torque control characteristics. The hawk DTC-60 brake pads are designed for cars with high deceleration rates with or without down force with sticky tires like DOT R compounds.

The Hawk DTC-60 has is Hawk's most popular track-only pad. We have seen about a 30-35% longer life at about 10% less maximum torque than the Hawk DTC-70.

The Hawk DTC-70 works best with sticky race rubber, hi-rate springs, and a well set-up shock package. Aero also helps. We sometimes use the Hawk DTC-60 to to split friction between front and rear axle by using a combination of DTC-60 and Hawk DTC-70.
