Thanks for the writeup. I've worked through many of the same points by considering information from a variety of threads on several forums, and it's good to see it put together coherently in one place.

I've come across what may come close to being the universal pad we'd almost all like to have. I'm now running PosiQuiet semi-metallics, and they're flat amazing. They're quiet (squeaked once during initial break-in) and dust moderately (black, but wipes off easily), have good hot and cold bite and a relatively constant coefficient of friction. They do require conditioning; the maker "scorches" them, but I got a lot of smoke during the first few hard stops; however, the bite was good out of the box. They may not stand up to full-on track use, but there was no detectable fade after six back-to-back 65-5 mph stops. Best of all, they're inexpensive - not much more than OEM-replacement organic pads. I'm happy with them to say the least.
