They hold up well to track use (MOT of 1350 F), have good cold friction (street) and are quiet. My only complaint is the StopTech only last about 6 track days. When summer rolls around, I will switch back to the PFC-06 for the track.
6 days seems like a lot to me. i think im getting 2-3 days out of my ferodo ds2500s on the front. rears last forever. havent tried stop-techs. like pagid rs 19s also but seem to wear the rotors pretty bad on the street. may have to give pfcs a try.
