    I bought a set of Porterfield R4 pads for the front, but I see now that Tirerack is offering a limited selection of track pads for the rear (and only the rear).

    So I was curious to the guys who have tracked their cars, how did the rear pads fair? I have a 2-day open track event at the end of June. I am hoping to spend at least 3 hours lapping each day. How will the OEM pads hold up with NT01's on the car? Is it worth buying a set of rear track pads? I'd hate to chew thru the rear street pads for no good reason.

    the Fiesta ST that we drove during the ST Octane Academy had OEM brake pads and rotors and they held up fine.

    Good to know.

    Is the Octane Academy track or auto cross?

    ST Octane Academy included track and autocross ["urbanX"] sessions.
