...and in fact I'm not. I realized yesterday when swapping in new pads (Axxis Del. -- never to track again!) that the pads wore to the plates and gouged neat concentric rings into my rear rotors. Ouch. Stupid $90 mistake...

Fair enough. I'll definitely try the EBC yellows in back; the price is right on those guys. I'm shocked that the rear 2500s are almost as expensive as the massive front ST40 pads...!

Do you folks recommend swapping pads at the track, or is daily commute wear (400 miles/week for me) going to be largely in the noise relative to track days?
