What is your view on the XP-20 back there?

It's not common to have the high rear pad wear at least we have not gotten that feedback before. As noted - we also suggested that high friction rear pads may not heat up enough for some users.

It is a small pad back there. Seems like there should be some caliper upgrade to get more surface area back there.


Here are the results from 3 1/2 hours on track with the XP-20s at Summit Point;

As you can see the pads wear unevenly and this has been consistent no matter which compound I've used. The outer pad wears much faster than the inner (piston side). I swapped them out to in to get the most life out of them.
Also cracked the right rear rotor so some cooling solution needs to be found which will hopefully help all areas for durability.
Performance is excellent, I love the feel of the Carbos and the XP 24/20 set is my favorite.
