Thanks bigjae. I hear you and I agree. I have a friend who uses ST S/P pads on Dinan BBK. He loves them (but doesn't drive all that hard). I'm just kind of brake-obsessed right now, and if I had even a little fade with Street pads on a new BBK, I would be mental and start second guessing everything.

FYI, I checked, the PF-01s for ST-60 are $430/pr. So, yeah, like about $800 for a set. That just seems insane to me for brake freakin pads.

I think (hope) you do get what you pay for here. (long sigh)
