that would be me!  to be fair, my latest experiences (i.e. since IA stage 3)
are with Porterfield street pads which I don't feel have the same "bite" or
stopping power of the Pagid RS4-2 pads i used to have.  don't know how the
Porterfield track pads might compare.  also keep in mind that folks such as
Eric, Scott, and a few others on the list have equally high HP cars with the
conventional brakes--albeit with other brake pads.
