I'm planning on doing a NASA track weekend @ VIR in March and I'm on the fence on brake pads. I'm currently planning on running the stock PSS (or maybe R spec Cup 2s on my 6GR wheels) but I'm not sure how well the stock pads will hold up. I have a brand new set of OEM pads to put on the car & Ti backing plates (Thanks to Tim for the backing plates!) but I don't want to waste a track weekend after killing the pads or something silly like that. I'd say I'm a fairly advanced driver (but certainly not a pro), but I've also not owned anything as fast as the GT350 on track and it's quite a bit faster than my prior cars. I completely melted a set of XP12s and smeared them on the rotors on my Focus RS last time I was VIR, and I'd very much like to not deal with that sort of silliness again. FWIW, I've successfully melted every set of Carbotechs I've used (XP10s, XP12s on various vehicles) except a set of AX6s on my nearly stock 1992 VW GTI. So I've been looking at other brands... Pagid is a bit rich for my blood, the Raybestos ST43 looks to be awesome, but if OEM pads will be fine to go out and drive at ~95% for 30 minutes at a time then why bother with anything else?
