Race/Track Brake Pads shootout

What pads do you use/recommend/like/dislike for racing and trackday use?

New rotors from MikeyMoto are coming soon so I'm looking to get a new set of pads but figured I would start a discussion and get a little more review-like information out there for everyone based on personal experiences. I know people really like the Ferodo XRAC pads, anyone have comments about Galfer pads?

This is for racing use for me, but post up what you like and what you use it for (and where you bought it!)

Re: Race/Track Brake Pads shootout

i personally like the ferodo XRACs for track use. no racing experience but track days in the wet and dry with them and they provide great feel and feel very progressive when applied. im always confident that if i need more stopping force its there, while not having a harsh initial bite.

Re: Race/Track Brake Pads shootout

I have the SBS Dual Carbon brake pads that I really like. I got them off a member from here, but they can be purchased at STG. They are worth checking out.
