Track demands--largely moderate braking (WGI, Mosport, Mid-O)

Preference--excellent performance, reasonably long-lasting with dust that doesn't harden like concrete on rims when wet

Skill level--debatable, but lots of seat time

Pad--Carbotech XP12

--many people I know love the 08--hope it works well for you. Years ago I used 97s but the dust when wet was brutal to remove if you allowed it to dry (like Hawk Blues--yikes); I'm sure they've come a long way since.

I bought the PFC08s but man do they squeal on the street.
Not the fronts so much but the rears!! It's beyond embarrassing.
Less brake dust than the Pagid Yellows, I guess that's a plus ...

Anybody want to buy barely used PFC08? :-)

Try a couple of hard slow downs -

I did, no change.
I still have the dampening pads in there and some brake goo in between so the dampening pads are more or less "glued" to the brake pads.
Will try to remove the dampening pads and see if that changes anything.

its all about break in... you need to do some of the things ive talked about in other threads.. basically getting the rotors very familiar with the pads. the rears lag in this process, because the bias is always less than half of the pressure and heat under threshold breaking. sure you can get them hot, but you need the pressure too. i do a technique with the rears that many do not. it has to do with jacking the car up safely , and running the car and using the brakes and the accelerator to bed the rear pads. something you really cant ever do on the street, so it becomes a crap shoot if they will bed properly. this technique assures proper bed in of the rears.

RS14 is a good choice for mixed street-track pads.

pretty funny, that is a pure race pad, but it does work very well on the street. i know, as i ran them for many years on the street too. just have to be bedded well.

RS14 is a higher friction relative of the RS29....

Pretty sure it's supposed to squeal, it's an endurance race pad. Run street pads on the street.

If you like the Pagid RS14 compound you may want to take a look at the new RST3 compound. Higher friction level and more stable at higher temps. Becoming very popular.

I've had good luck with Hawk DTC-70 and 60 on my GT3 as well. I run 60's with sticky street tires or NT01's and 70's with HoHo or Pirelli DH's. Good initial bite and fade resistance and I got about 2 full sets of use before my oem cross drilled rotors began to crack.

I've since switched to slotted/blank rotors and the wear is still pretty good. Plus they are priced pretty reasonably compared to PFC and Pagid. I get about 9-10 days on a set before I toss them with about 3mm left.

I ran 08s on my 997.2 and my car sounded like a freight train. On track, I was by far the loudest car in my run group. Watching in-car video I could hear them. LOL. They were absolutely bedded in properly and I ran them an entire season along with a summer's worth of street driving. I really liked them, regardless of the noise.
