The OEM ACDelco pad fits 97% of the needs of the car, from street to track. The only 3% isn't doesn't work well for are really fast drivers on track. Stick with OEM, there are really no better...

I believe what I am stating here to be correct; remember, the red bar on the PDR does not measure braking force but rather pedal travel. If you experience a true ICE mode, your pedal is rock hard...

I posted my 7500 mile blower for $1800 shipped and got very few bites - FYI. Maybe $15-1600 is the right price.
