1st ever track day - WOW my brakes suck

Road race, Auto X, or the Drag Strip

Both sets of pads are of an unknown brand. They were done before I learned to do my own car repair. The rears are completely shot, so I will be ordering some Hawks or Porterfields in the next day or so. I'm pretty sure I have some air in the system, as the pedal goes to the floor much too easily. I'm going to work on the master cyl this weekend.

i have had same problem at the trac use dot 4 and porterfield and brake ducks and i will still cook the brakes .your pads are cooked! and rotors glazed use porterfield full rae pads or enderance pads.also they have heat shims you can put between the pads and calipers,also have heat strips you can put on calipers to see what temp the brakes are getting.all trac brake are not big enoght.for the weight and power.
