Also check out the Mintex CTech 1144 or 1155's if you are really gun-ho...
(BlueBox) M1144 is the material for fast road use as well as light competition such as karting, hill climb and single seater racing cars. One of the main characteristics of this material is the ability to work from cold, which gives the user the confidence of a standard material on the first application of the brakes. The benefit of M1144 is experienced as the temperature within the brakes starts to increase. M1144 will remain stable and consistent through to 450c where a standard material at this temperature will most certainly start to fade. The bedding in procedure for M1144 is the same as any standard material i.e. steady braking for the first 50 miles, avoiding emergency stops. All M1144 pads are supplied with fully branded C-Tech anti noise shims and a C-Tech sticker 100-450°C
(BlackBox) M1155 is purely designed for competition use and under no circumstances should be used for normal road applications. Applications such as Group A and N rally cars and circuit saloons best suit this material. M1155 has a similar friction level to M1144 but remains consistent to a maximum operating temperature of 550-600c. Like M1144 there are no special bedding in procedures for M1155. 100-600°C

Try using good pads and you won't fade.
I think a Pagid Orange is more your style, stay away
from Mintex Reds if you drive hard.
