seriously, DO NOT get brake pads that are meant for high temp. applications (like racing) for driving around normally. Your stopping distances will be longer, and it will be VERY dangerous. Brakes are not something to mess around with, and race pads are not like some badge you can put on your car to impress people with. Get an uprated street pad, you will enjoy the increase in brake performance.

just to reinforce, the difference between race and street are their operating temps. everyone's probably seen nascar dudes swerving around on the pace lap, they're warming up their tires to get to their operating temperature faster. if you can't keep up the temperature, race pads will definately be worse. so stick with street pads like axxis ultimates, hawk hps, there are a bunch more.
