I assume you're talking about the rear pads, right? The Ferodos have been absolutely problem-free for me. I'm no track rat by any means (maybe a track mouse ), with ~3-4 track days per year, so consider that part too.

Well, I can certainly try running a dedicated race pad in the back; I'm just worried about upsetting the brake balance; with the H6 rotors in back and identical compound pads all around, I can always hear the rear ABS activate before the front.

As for the front BBK -- all the paperwork definitely says WRX, not STi, but who knows. Maybe I should try going back to the stock-sized rear rotor?
