Need dedicated track pads

I tried a set of Cool Carbons last season as an all around performance street/track pad and they were alright--much better than OEM on track, no fade even when driven hard, but some definite shudder despite careful bed in, noisy on street unless you kept on bedding them like every week. Basically an OK compromise.

Now I want to buy some real track pads and learn to DYI to change them over, as I have scheduled many more track weekends this year. However, I want to stay with my stock rotors and want a rotor-friendly pad. I'm trying to decide between the Pagid RS19, Carbotech XP-10, and Performance Friction 06. The Pagids are way expensive but probably get what you pay for. I've heard good things about the others too, unsure how long they will last though.

Any input appreciated to help me decide.
