I don't remember, I want to say 4 ohm. It's not a woofer, so that's the biggest thing.. and I've also noticed that the Polk speakers tend to be more mid-y anyways.

Got the car out earlier this week and I am planning to have it out for some more of the weekend. Gotta swap brakes to the new pads I am trying, take care of a few little things, put on new suspension, and later fix that AC stuff.




I missed the car

Endless MX72 Plus Brake Pads

Decided to stray away from using a street compound and a track compound for brakes. My old track pads (Hawk DTC-30s) would stand up to the heat, and have great brake feel, but tear away at the rotor (one set per weekend) and NOT be streetable. The street Stoptech pads would NOT jive with the Hawk compound and leave crazy deposits on rotors.. all in all.. just not good.

I found the Endless MX72 Plus compound to be marketing for street AND track use... which is already a red flag in my book. Per their specs though, they can withstand temperatures higher than the Hawk's could and I figured it was worth a shot to try them on the street.










While I was in there I also swapped the rear rotors with some new Group N ones, just to keep everything fresh. The old ones were already REALLY torn up from the Hawks.

Initial thoughts: OH MY GOD THEY ARE GREAT. I went to bed them in and the pedal feels just as firm, if not firmer than the Hawks did (I assume this means low compressability of the material??) and didn't have the slop of the Stoptechs. Bite felt great and while I couldn't give it the full beans (still had snow tires on and they were locking up) the noise/dust/etc was that of a loud street pad. No crazy whirring or dust, but a bit of a friction sound when coming to a stop. 1000000% deal-with-able on the daily.

If these things hold up on track and don't wear away rotors like a lathe, these are a serious no brainer for anyone who drives their car on the street and also on the track multiple times a season.



I'll post an update with the Star Specs on the car, and after some track time.

Nice! I'll be needing new pads soon too so your review certainly helps there. I also dual duty the car but commonly swap track pads on for HPDEs. Curious to see how these work out for you.

Awesome car man!
