I'm just back from Road Atlanta and I got repeated brake fade for the very first time (I have RS-19s, ducted/vented brakes on stock rotors and calipers) and yet, the pad wear on my fronts I'd say is 20% or so (but I only did one day's worth of driving due to a flat and a DE schedule adjusted for club racing).
Just posted in another thread but was at Road Atl this past weekend as well (the Alpine E92 with Orange mirrors in C group).. Ate away my stock front pads and was using MDM... Sounds like MDM may be the problem. I noticed it coming on from time to time and could feel the fade in 10A pretty bad.
