I just read your article and i am trying to decide whether or not i need a full blown track pad for HPDE's. I will be running on Kumho XS which are fairly grippy for a street tire which i am sure you are aware of just wanted to give some detail. Am i better off switching pads for events using a HT-10 or running something similar to the hawk blue 9012. I am a novice driver. Also i have heard of people only running a serious brake pad compound for the front and a less aggressive pad for the rear, what is the logic behind this? the only one i see is cost effectiveness? Any detrimental effects with driving?

Can anybody help me narrow down choices, with their own experience?

Information on car: 2000 2.5rs weighting in at 2750 roughly
