Its the simple truth that street pads are not adequate for track days once you get your driving up to a reasonable level. A track day is an exercise in converting gasoline into brake dust - the faster you burn gas the harder your brakes work. It's really that simple.
Doesn't the light come on every time the system is active? I honestly do not usually "feel" it (it's one of the things I like about the car) but the light is pretty obvious.
