Keep in mind people, you don't just want clearance, you want a fair amount of clearance. If the gap is less than about 5mm, you'll get little rocks and debris getting stuck in there, ruining the finish of the calipers.

Also, with little or no gap, the calipers are more hidden/blocked, aesthetically. Moving the wheel out a bit more looks better.

What are people running in these calipers for track pads? I was hoping to find something at FCP (for the replacement policy) like a Hawk HT10, but they don’t have much for these brakes it seems.

I'm using DTC-60s all around and so far feels pretty good. Nice initial bite and don't feel a lot of fade. FCP has these too for our sizes!
