Forgot to ask how they are for dust and squeal. Would they make a good everyday pad or just track?

These are track only pads. In short, they are an endurance version of the PFC01 race pads.

That is one way to tell everyone in the pits that you mean business as you pull in!

Harold has an awesome deal on these! He shipped a set to me recently in time for my HPDE this friday and so far so good! The dust is moderate, however to my surprise I found it completely rinses right off with a hose!

I drove them 3 hours out of state for work this monday. Because they are full track pads there are no clips and no soft/rubber backing to them. The only time they squeal is with very light brake application at sub 7mph speeds and warmed up (ex. coming to a stop light). Its my understanding these squeal much less than the 01's and are much less abrasive on your rotors (In fact less abrasive than stock pads). You may be able to combat the squeal with CRC Brake Quiet if you follow the instructions and let it cure for 20 minutes before installing the pads. Personally, I can live with it until friday when I go to Lime Rock!

All in all, GREAT deal on these sweet track pads and a GREAT vendor!

I would assume it is possible because the pads have no backing, no clips, or anything else. Just the metal back of the pad and ears. They do fit snugly in the caliper once bolted back together, and although I wont be on the track until tomorrow morning, all week on the road they have not had any "rattle". They do squeal if you try and brake using very very light pressure (ex. rolling up to a light) but thats just the pads telling you you are not giving them the work out they want and deserve!

Wear wasnt bad after 1 event of pretty heavy use. Unfortunately my season was on hold after that so I dont have more info for you. These pads are great.
