Default Which brake pads for drag racing?

Got a new set of galfer rotors on my list. Which pads should I get, sintered or semi- metallic? This is for a hayabusa mostly just drag race it. And its only got one front rotors on it now. The stock ones are all heat marked and pitted so I am upgrading. Has gone mid 160 mph

EBC HH pads will work great for ya. Run them on both my bikes. Why only run one front rotor? How fast do you think you will be running. Reason I ask is that at Martin, you will want all the stopping power you can get, that shut down gets a lot shorter when you trap over 180!

It will somedays go mid 8's on spray. The bike was set up that way (one front rotor) by previous owner for his x wife. With the galfer rotors they want you to run their(galfer) pads. That's why I was asking which pads to use. I ordered front and rear rotor yesterday, and wanted to make sure I knew what pads are best for racing.

Thanks,
Kirk

stock replacement pads will probably suffice, but if you decide to upgrade, just be sure that you dont choose a compound that needs to be up to temperature to operate properly. IE: road race stuff

This is why I like the EBC HH's they heat up pretty fast and the feel and control is great. And they don't leave a bunch of deposits on the rotor.

And I use these on the Galfer rotors on my turbo bike with great stopping power.
