I'll second what Bob said, the RepcoMetal Masters work GREAT on the
street, as well as light-duty track use. No problems on the street even
when stone cold, as least with modern power brake assist. I have found
them to exhibit substantially reduced stopping power when totally soaking
wet, not just driving in rain, but as in VERY deep puddles to total
immersion, but then any brake pad material will exhibit poor performance
if very wet/submerged. Use 'em!

As for the Metal Master's being maringal on the street, I said it once,
and I'll say it again: They work great. There is virtually no "lag-time"
before the pads heat up and grip, and it has been quite cold here in Ohio
this winter. I will continue to use them.
