That's the graph I was looking for, but it doesn't differentiate RS-19 and RS-29 (it's still dominated by "yellow"). A NASA racing buddy of mine recommended (for me at least) trying the Pagid Oranges (RS4-4 in the graph, link here: in the back - to raise temps at the high end (600C in the graph). I have rotor crazing in the front but not much in the back with Pagid Yellows in all 4 corners - which I believe means I still have room for more rear bias. It remains to be seen if I am actually good enough to get a benefit when I get around to trying RS4-4s in the back.

Nice graph that differentiates 19 / 29:
... a glorious V8 that screamed and hollered as the revs rose and then howled in an orgy of what sounded like BDSM ecstasy as it neared the red line.
Well, you can forget all that. The new car is fitted with a turbocharged straight six. Turbocharging? In an M car? Thatís like putting gravy on an ice cream.
