My front stock pads were changed out after about 2.5 hours of running during the 1st day and had about 50% left and I changed them before the next trackday.The next day I did was in the rain on a much harder braking circuit and I used about 30% of the pad life in about an hour of running in the pouring rain.The yellow pagids that I have run in the past,used to last about 4 hours on this track in the dry as a reference point.The rears still have about 50% left after these 2 days.I will probally use the pagids next year for track days.I run with all the traction & stability aids turned off all the time on track.
