Do you think PFC08 fronts and PFC Z-Rated rear combo would work for HPDE? Seems like front bias should not be that much of an issue. Or do you think I really should get PFC08s all around? Hate to spring for rears for just 1..2 HPDEs.

The PFC Z-rated are good for the street, but heat up excessively on track leaving rotor deposits and major vibration issues. I have not tried the
PFC08, but I am currently using the PFC06 for the track. I would use the
PFC08 all around and then you don't have to worry about vibration issues and brake bias.
