I've used Jurids, and they were fine for the street- but repeatedly
hauling the car down with my foot on the floor from high track speeds was
just asking a bit much from them- past a certain point there was just
nothing left no matter how much I pushed, whereas the more aggressive pads
I had (whatever they were) kept going, and in fact gripped better and
better the longer I braked.  Very good characteristic for those
near-brown-shorts moments.

Kind of leaning towards Carbotech XP8's or Hawk HP+'s.  Someone told me
XP8's are still very useable on the street and their low starting temp
range of 150-1250 seems to back that up. 9's are 250-1350.
