BTDT with the Rofrens. They were okay, much less dust than stock, a bit more
resistance to fade on back roads. Lasted about a day up at Watkins Glen
before I cooked them.

I would have liked to try Pagids, but they're frightfully expensive.

Most recently, I've been using pads from Paul Weston, which I believe are
manufactured by Advanced Friction Technology. I ran the 03 and 04 race
compound pads at the Glen: fantastic! Wouldn't recommend them on the street,
though: lots of noise, no braking force unless they're _hot_.

On the street, I've been using the AFT SportStreet compound, at least on
the rear. These seem like a nice compromise, and I'll be dropping a
set in the front as soon as I finish shredding the set of OEM pads that
I've got now...
