I don't know where you're coming from. They don't require much more leg force than stock pads unless you've got chicken legs.

Sure they fade, but not as easily as you describe. I had a set on at Sears Point and even Steve Dinan as my instructor didn't get them to fade while we were in the B group.

As far as sound is concerned, they do squeal but for me it's worth the tradeoff in lack of dust.

: : What do you think? Are they quite or would I need to use some kind of dampening material? And do they dust a lot? Im using them as regular street pads. thx

: Here's the deal. On the plus side, they are the cleanest pads bar none. On the minus side, they do NOT 'bite' as well as stock pads and it takes more 'leg' to stop, they tend to squeal more, especially when used on the rears, and they tend to fade pretty easily, ie, 3 hard stops from over 70 and you'll be in fade city.
