Not trying to worry you, just be careful. On the right track and with a little forethought, a guy could make them work as a track/street compromise.
R4-S! Haha, that's what I was trying to say. They're at least better than the stock PP pad! Do you have experience with the R4 track version at all? Wondering if I can swap them out, or if the R4 will eat my rotors.
