I don't know how you'd overheat the ST pads in ST60 on street tires. Maybe running slicks.
I had the ST pads in an ST40 caliper on my 330 with a 332mm disc and street tires. The pad actually lasted pretty good but there was no bite. Then there was less and less as the weekend went on. I could be just used to the PF01s which have a lot of initial bite...probably could use a little less.

I believe ShadyD1 has rldzhao's old ST60 BBK and was using those ST pads. He kind of sold me on trying them on the track.

I might have to try them again.
