with one of the three... Pagic, Ferodo, or Hawk.

Still searching on reviews for those pads... care to re-post your suggestions. =)

I want a more aggressive "street" pad... I'll probably enjoy 1 or 2 track days on them for the next 6 months... so I don't need Pagid Oranges or Ferodo 3000s...just something with a little more bite...

HOLY CRAP! really? I'm at 16K and my brakes are squealing like a raped pig... tried cleaning them off with some hard 60-5mph stops... there seems to be a little bit of pad left.. not much.

You never asked about squealing (mine do), but apparently it's not the warning indicators (at least in my case).

If you toast the pads and rotors good, the brakes will squeal.
You can try sanding the pads and scuff the rotors. Might be good for a while.
