Well, in an ideal world, a track day would be an exercise in converting gasoline into heat transfer into the environment. The "better" pads and rotors should be able to create heat at the rotor pad interface with less wear on either component. No wear is impossible obviously, so I am speaking in relative terms. I have yet to see any useful data on this though.
