So I went with Carbotech pads which I will install this weekend along with Ate Blue fluid. I will just take the pads off in a few weeks when I am done with HPDE's for this year. Good luck.
I've also gone with carbotech pads for track days. They're great for the track. Great bite, and not much fade.

It sounds like you're going to be doing some street driving with them. Just be ready, they squeal like pigs.
