Just finished installing the new forged Wilwood kit on my Oxford White!

How do these compare to the DP6?
These replaced the DP6. They are forged and have a slightly different design. Personally I'm not a fan of the pad-swapping procedure on these. You have to completely remove the caliper to swap out pads now.

Otherwise, they feel great so far. Using the BP-20 pads for street right now.

I have the same brake calipers on my Fiesta. Everything is the same except I went with the black option. I agree swapping pads is a bit troublesome more so when I am constantly changing from track pads to street pads. I will note the with the BP-20 pads they were squeak free until about 6,000 miles into them. I am thinking after my next track event I may try the sand paper trick to attempt to remove anything possibly embedded in the pads. Brake performance is amazing in my opinion compared to stock (more so when you have a wider/stickier tire). There is also no brake fade that I have noticed when pushing the car hard both on the track and on spirited canyon/mountain runs.

What pads do you use on track?
