Playing devil's advocate here, but this is on ST60/ST pads (and driving pretty hard ):

I see how you would want more friction for slicks etc., but I personally don't think running hawk or PFC or whatever will be faster than ST pads on a true street tire. And I only ran through 1/6-1/8 of the fronts at Barber in 3 hours on track.
