Seems odd as the Hawks actually have much better initial bite than the Stoptechs. The Stoptechs however have a higher heat tolerance and are less likely to chunk up from heat.

The only thing I can think is that the HPS were not properly bedded in when initially installed and you now have glazing of the rotors which can lead to poor braking in cold/rain situations.
