So you see accelerated pad wear and poor braking performance.
Agreed, and I've only been to the track once. I can already tell. I ran Project Mu Club Racer pads and SRF fluid and everything felt great until I started to get vibration from the rotors overheating. A couple laps going easy on the brakes and it was greatly reduced.
