For street driving the OEM setup should be adequate. Cannot imagine fade being an issue off the track.

Since I track my car often, I upgraded my brakes as follows: pads to Ferodo DS2500's, Stoptech SS lines and Castrol SRF fluid.

I have done 2 track days (tomorrow will be my 3rd) with this setup and have not had any issue with fade. The Ferodo pads are not noisy and have good bite at street temps. Don't think there is any compromise using this pad on the street other than the OEM pads are covered for 4 years Might as well take advantage of that benefit. Castrol SRF is expensive and not worth it unless you are on the track a lot. The stoptech SS lines were not expensive so the are worth it IMO. If you are only using this on the street be careful using a dedicated track pad because they are noisy and don't stop as well when cold (cold being most of the time on the street).
