Power Stop track day pads

In search of a good first-timer dedicated track pad, I came across the Power Stop "track day" and "track day spec" pads. Everyone loves them... Everyone. The only negative anyone

Default Power Stop track day pads

In search of a good first-timer dedicated track pad, I came across the Power Stop "track day" and "track day spec" pads. Everyone loves them... Everyone. The only negative anyone thing that anyone ever mentions is dust, which should be expected. I've even done searches like "power stop track day pads suck" and come up with nothing. I've not seen one review saying they fade. It's been a long time since I've seen such one-sided positive reviews for a product. They're $76 & $65 for F/R at Rock Auto. Does anyone here have any personal experience with them?

I used their street pads on a charger srt 392, I think it was z23, and it was an unpleasant experience, don't know much about their track day pads.

Can you give more detail about what you didn't like?

Stock pads had strong bite and inspire confidence with little effort to stop, with powerstop, there was no bite, and the pedal effort was high, didn't inspire confidence, also the braking pedal wasn't linear, I changed them to Hawk hp 5.0 and they were much better but also not at oem pads level.

Maybe their track pads are different, I read the huge positive reviews of them in srt communities before buying, at their price point I wouldn't complain (roughly usd 100 vs 500) but I care about how my brakes feel even in street.

This is for future users. I've used those for a year. They are amazing for the price. They have great initial bite.. but once you overheat them, it will never be the same haha. Dust is horrible but it is to be expected. Not recommended for street use.
