I agree with you about the feel though, it is not so good. But for the price of the pads and the stopping power and the ability to not swap pads it is totally worth that trade off.
At Mosport the ST street pads are passable as the brake cycles are a small part of the total lap time at the expense of good pedal feel at the braking limit.At tracks that require a higher duty cycle like WGI,Calabogie they do not work out very well if you want to go fast.They are a comprimise at best for serious track day drivers.Wonderful street pad though!
