In any case I'll be careful. Thank you for your comments.
The coefficient of friction associated with the pads are temperature dependant. The stock pads might have higher CoF at lower temps, but as temp increases the track pads should offer higher CoF. CoF eventually peaks at a certain temperature and then starts to decrease. That peak point is when your brakes "start to fade". I haven't seen temp vs CoF data on the stock pads either.
