**disclaimer - assuming you are monitoring you brake pad thickness with your regularly with your eyes** BECAUSE RACECAR you should.
Well the brake bias on this car makes it so you barely use any rear pads.

My StopTech Street pads I had on my stock calipers were at 80% after 7 track days, while the fronts were pretty much gone.

Or are you referring to the front? the front sensors aren't plugged in, they're zip tied. Not sure where though... lol
Yes I do monitor the pad. I check them visually before every track day
