I recently tried the stock brakes with hybrid street/track pad route
using Endless MX72's. They had some squeak on the street
(unusual for these pads according to Endless rep) but great feel,
overall would say they are excellent pads for spirited driving and light
track use.

However, as I gain more track experience I'm overheating them
with uneven pad transfer. I have a supercharger, was on a pretty
fast track, getting better and was trying to brake later.

Since I'm planning to track more often (it's more addictive than crack!)
I decided to just do things right from the start and get a BBK and use
dedicated track pads.

OEM street pads are definitely not enough, you'll burn them up quick,
If your just doing a few track days a year hybrids will work great and you
wont have to change them out. I think dedicated pads are the way to go
once your really into it and going to the track regularly.

If your interested to try set of almost new Endless MX72's give me a shout.
