I'd stick with standard, it's all I ever use on a road car.

My last car was built up as a track day build. It was certainly on the latter part of the fast road scope.

The engine from that has gone into a current car of mine on refurbed standard 8.4 setup with mintex pads.

For every day driving they are ideal, they can take a blast down the backroads too.

But drive like an arse and the brakes will give up on you. This is not as a result of the pad material, 2 pot or four pot its as a result of it not having vented disks.

I changed from allow solid to allow vented on the track car for this reason.
