The advantage of SRF is you don't have to change it out for the season.

Agree a thousand percent. Love these pads for the track and they've been pretty nice to the stock rotors too.

Another vote for PF01.

I've been running these off and on for years and nothing else I've tried even comes close.

Anyone ever have deposit issues going between PF01 and OEM? I've heard of this with other pads. My one concern is compatibility with the stock pads when you change them out. On my e46, I ran PF-Z on the street and PF-01 for the track, and never had any vibration issues. There is the possibility of incompatible pad deposits causing some vibration from the brakes when you switch back to OEM from PF01. I also understand that if you leave the track pads in for a few days after the event, they'll scrub off deposits on their own, so long as you don't get them hot.
