However, in this case the evidence is really stacking up. How many folks have had fade, boil, pad transfer, etc.?
Thing is, everything is a trade off! For most people, pad and rotor life, easy of use, quietness, replacement cost ect. is more important then how they perform after 3+ track days. The brakes wern't designed to be the ultimate track setup, they are however very good street brakes that can be used on the track with good results too.
