Endless Brake Pads for Street/Track Use

I'm interested in upgrading my stock brake pads so something a bit more performance oriented that will still work for a daily driver/occasional track day setup. I was looking into Endless pads. I've seen some old threads but don't see any conclusive advice.

Can anyone chime in? I don't want anything particularly noisy.

You will do a lot of research and come to realize that you need to have track pads for the track, and street pads for the street. There is nothing in between, aka hybrid pad. Others will say otherwise, but in the end people with experience will agree.

ME20 is the track compound, and MX72 is the hybrid compound.

I ran Hawk HPS pads on my 350Z for the street. I didn't run them on the track for very long because the pads took too long to heat up. Once they were at operating temp, the track event was over So I switched to Hawk HP+ for track duty.

For what it's worth, I was clamping down on DBA 4000 rotors with OEM 350Z brembos, HP+ pads and I had SS lines with Motul racing fluid.
