Now who wants to haul my R888's out there for me?
what pad would you recommend

Yeah, Nate, I think you're probably right... I bought the AX6 pads as "mountain run" pads, and they did EXTREMELY well on an insane 300 mile mountain twisty drive I did the day before... and they never faded on the Dragon, either... didn't glaze, but did smoke a little, and did make HELLA heat... I could feel the heat radiating off my front wheels and brakes from 3' away... they were stupid hot... I'll be getting track pads for this season (probably CarboTech XP10/XP8) and may run those next time at the Dragon. I won't run it NEARLY as hard at MOTD as I do during the trips at other times of year... just too much traffic and too much increased chance of disaster at MOTD. I've seen that weekend eat too many MINIs.

What braking system are you using that ST-43 with?
Are you running them front and back?

I just pulled my R-4 pads off after two days at Buttonwillow... looks like they might have been overworked, just a tad, on the stock braking system with my heavy, automatic convertible S.

At least the Motul stood up pretty well... no air in the lines when I bled them last night!
