The PF90's deposit a film of material on the rotor surface. Without it they just don't seem to work well. So I wouldn't mix pads with one set of rotors. I did try swapping between Porterfield R4-S's and R-4 for a while, but went with R-4 all the time for the past year or so. BUt with the wet weather lately, I find they require too much thinking :( They just don't get warm enough on the street, in the rain. So they are harsh, noisy and don't stop as well as stock pads (not to mention they are way more expensive).
So it's back to two sets of rotors. One set (front and back) and PF90's for the track, and I'll continue to ue the current rotors with stock pads (well PBR Deluxe actually) on the street. Maybe it will force me to slow down on the street, or whatever it was the Judge said....;)
