I plan on running ferodo DS1.11 pads on the front and DS2500 in the rear. The nice thing about the DS1.11 is, it's pretty close in compound to the DS2500s, which can be used on the street. So I can get away with just swapping the fronts in track day, and not have to worry about rebedding before and after each event.
I will be running this exact set up on my AP Racing BBK's when I get them fitted to the car. Jeff Ritter from Essex Parts (where I bought the AP brakes) spoke about the DS2500 and DS1.11s having the same compound, which reduced the need to bed the DS2500s back in after the track day. Can't wait to try them out!
Yup. And being a beginner/intermediate driver, I really don't need full DS1.11's all around. The DS2500s should be fine in the rear. Will know better after a handful of track days.
