worse comes to worse, you send in toasted rotors/pads back to FCP and get a new set for street if it doesn't work out?



I'm going to offload a set of PFC08s for stock calipers soon.

I had a very good experience with ds2500 as a dual purpose pad. It does squeaky every now and then on the street but it can handle the heat on track.

What tracks are you running? On an easy braking track like Roebling Road or Willow Springs Int'l you'd likely be fine. If you're talking Watkins Glen or Road America, definitely not. They'd burn up very quickly with NT01's.

I'm based in Atlanta so typical tracks I frequent are Road Atlanta, Atlanta Motorsports Park, and Barber.
