Brake pads

Thanks for the recommendations guys - I'd forgotten about the need to  
clean for organics, and the sintered Ferodo pads are insanely  
expensive. I was thinking more about next year - the last race got me  
to thinking about it for contingency money like tires. Gotta admit the  
Pirelli dealer was a big help at the last race, but I'm considering  
changing because of price - Bridgestone finally has SV sized DOT tires  
and they're like $140 less a set.

Guess I'll stick with EBC for now and get a fresh set of the kit pads  
for next year. The theoretical advantages of payout to 5th instead of  
3rd is negated by the high price/cleanup for Ferodo; it would take a  
long time to make it pay off.
