Lol. well from my point of view, i say get the next new set you want. If those dont work out or they do and you use them up you'll have a spare set at the track and won't miss out on driving time. That'll be me next season as I've already received input on my next set for next season

I want to do pads and the master cylinder stopper. But can't afford that this time of year

Maybe next year once the holidays are paid off

With pads wearing that little, be sure to check your rotor wear as well. I'd much rather go through a set of pads FIRST, rather than have heavy rotor degradation.

You're right- HP+ are not that aggressive. What tracks are you running? I've never seen anyone running six track days and not have ANY wear.

I've never worn through a set of rotors, is there a way to tell?

Just use a caliper and measure the thickness relative to the stated minimum...

Manufacturer: Powerstop
Compound: Track day
Operating temperature range: 0-1000 F
Coefficient of friction: ?
Brake system: Stock Non-Brembo
Application: Road Course, Pittrace and Toronto Motorsports Park
Price paid:170 total, all corners
Durability: 6 20 minute session
Rotors friendliness: Unknown

General impressions:
Only pad I have run at the track so far. They have no fade at all. When the pad get down to the last 50 percent be careful. The pad will deteriorate rapidly. I think these would be great for autocross or a novice out on a "track day". Dust is normal. Cold weather is acceptable. For people who demand 90-100 percent out of the car, do not get these.

I was sold on trying them listening to the gridlife guys talk to the engineer on a podcast.

I tried these as well. Worked great, didnt' last too long. I got a track weekend out of them and they were completely done. They were very low cost and the perfomance was actually on par with some of the best. They just didn't last that long. I loved them on the street. So for street & autocross, I think they are a great low cost pad. Even a good low cost pad for someone doing HPDE or Time Attack, just don't expect to get more than a track weekend out of them. Just for reference, I only got 3 track days out of DTC 60s. So two track days out of a pad that cost half, not bad.
