: Greg,
: 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.

: 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....;)


Just to throw in another data point, I too run the PF90s for the track, but only use a dedicated set of front rotors. I use the same rear rotors on the street & track. I haven't noticed any adverse effects of this, and it makes track-prep a little easier.

Just my 2 cents (Hi Steve! :-))
