Pads

I'd also go with this recommendation. Good to get a feel for the limitations of stock pads at the track first. Also (not sure of your driving ability/level), but beginners can sometimes use stock pads the first few times out until you really start taking advantage of the serious braking power these cars have.

My experience: I am running Pagid RS-19 yellow (front) and Pagid RS-7 black (rear). The RS-7s replaced the discontinued RS-19 rear, so they are matching compounds. Expensive, but what I find is not only are they excellent under high temperatures on-track, but have decent cold bite. An added bonus, they are easy on rotors and have good longevity.

After 5 hard track days, the F and R pads are at about 50%+ and the rotors are showing almost no runout (light wear) with no discernable "ridge" created.

My 2 cents. -Brian
