"So i spoke to stoptech about the pads, they are apparently good up to 1300F, which is higher than even some of the less aggressive race pads, and near the 1350 of the XP8, the 1400 of the Hawk HT-10."
That is impressive assuming they work well on the street (no noise, low temp bite). Stocks pads are about 1000F and a top end race pad is 1600.
