I now think track pads are a total band aid approach. You can upgrade to track pads, ss lines, and better brake fluid. Those components in themselves have more capability than their OEM parts. The problem is those parts now allow you to exceed the capabilities of the other parts, calipers and rotors. So you put even more heat into those parts that weren't designed for that much heat. So you see accelerated pad wear and poor braking performance.
