In any case, I agree with you and I am still on the verge of swapping them.
Hey MTROIS. Who exactly did you speak with? Your instructor or some other person at the club? I offerred my opinion, and stand behind it, but it does help to "manage" your relationship with your instructor if he is the one who made the suggestion. But I suspect you spoke with someone who is been assigned to help you prepeare and and has track experience, but is not an instructor.

RS19s don't grab all that hard. If anything, they will help your pedal feel once the brakes warm up compared to the stock pads. And they offer plenty of cold grip IMO. Again, you won't be going all that fast, but you will make about 15 120-40 stops and several smaller brake adjustments in 25 minutes. Having said this, you don't want to be worrying about this too much on your first day. If you will swap them in, do it at least a week before the event and drive around with them (I normally don't take them out at all). Don't do it the day before. Cheers.
