Not pleased. May try 08s for longevity, wanted to touch base and see what the group thinks of Pagids (19s and or 29s). I dont mind paying the extra money if they really last a few track days.

Thoughts?

'06's that I have last super long on my E46M3. For HPDE environments, the '06's have served me well. It's hard to see how I'm going to wear these pads out given how few events I run anymore. Bite is fine, though some complain about modulation difficulties. I must not be as sensitive as I don't perceive any modulation problems. Big fan of PFC products.

I just ran PFC08's for the first time coming from 01's and Hawk HT10/14's. The PFC08's have the spring clips which cures the low speed rattle. They don't have the bite of the 01's but they're more consistent when really hot and warming up. The 01's seemed to change a lot during temp changes. So far, happy camper with 08's and don't think I'll be back to 01's.

Oh...and right now I have 01's in the rear and 08's in the front. The bias is not a problem until the pads really get worked, then I can feel the rear's biting harder. Trail braking is really easy though.
