For reference I did time trials consisting of 3-5 laps on a pretty lengthy 1:20ish course and the OEM pads were perfectly fine. This was in an 06 STi
Also something like HPS pads or Stoptech pads will be fine too if OEM is too expensive.
My view is kinda that I don't want to get "worse" pads. I'm too used to the bicycle world where you ride it till something breaks then get something better.
I've seen too many threads about the HPS and Stoptechs being worse than OEM
