Ryan, you don't have a problem with the stock M3 brakes. You're experiencing fade because you're getting faster and braking harder as you get to know the track by the end of the day.

I've been to Buttonwillow (2x) and I had brake fade as well and I was still on the stock pads, rotors, and brake fluid. All you gotta do is slow down a bit to let the rotos cool off. Just remember that its not time trials and you're out there to have fun.

What you can do if you wish is switch to ATE Super Blue and if you continue going to the track, buy another set of rotors like the Euro Floaters and pads like PF90 or something less expensive.

Next thing you know you'll be addicted and become a track junkie.
