    They definitely lasted less than the cross-drilled. Really disappointed in them. 1.5 days and they looked like this 20190810_194120.jpg

    Which tracks were you running that caused that level of wear?

    Appreciate the data. I have 1.5 sets of oem front pads and just put in new rear pads, so about 8-9 track days for me and I’ll be trying the 19 flat rotors with st43 pads (which like you experience will wear rotors faster than oem pads). I have maybe 14 or 15 days on oem drilled, Should get 8 more and they they are probably toast. Expecting less with st43. I do less aggressive braking tracks than Cota for sure though.

    I’d like to run R rubber but considering I keep getting cup 2 for $200 older or lightly used I can’t justify the cost.

    I'm doing the same. Just bought a set of those 2015 Cup2s because they're a great deal...hard to justify Hoosier money when you get an entire set for $800.

    The problem is there are zero deals to be had on Hoosiers, so ya $800 vs $2200 is a huge difference, even presuming equal wear life which I’m not sure is true.
