  1. there are race pads you can daily if you don’t mind shortening rotor life. but if you track somewhat regularly it shouldn’t be a huge difference. I daily’d Raybestos ST43’s on my NC Miata even in subfreezing temps and they still had better cold bite than any street pad I’ve ever tried. only issues was a little bit of noise on occasion, but a few hard stops usually made that go away again. Just don’t mix it with any other pad compound on the rotors, they get obscenely loud when mixed with other compounds. Like loud enough that I would cringe every time I had to brake for the next few days when driving other cars with silent brakes.

  2. Consider the AP Racing 9660 or 9668 kit. The calipers offer two different types of quick change pad designs. The Ferodo race compounds and DS2500 are advertised as being rotor compatible, so you don’t need to re-bed them when switching. If you find a Ferodo racing compound you like (perhaps a 3.12), then you could relatively quickly change it to the DS2500’s for the cruise home.
