About to head to my first trackday in the GTR and need to get the car ready. I have done several trackdays in previous cars and always used XP-10/12's with great success. I have found it harder to get to the track as often and was thinking I may be able to pull off a track/street pad compromise. I have read about 6 pages of previous posts and think I will go with the ME-20, or should I go with the MX-72 ? I may make 3-4 events a year (blue/red group) and dont mind a little noise if needed on the street.
Thanks

MX72s are terrific for occasional tracker.

They're great for street driving. Pretty decent for tracking (unless you're a track junkie).

MX72's should be fine for double duty...if you really plan to punish the car at the track (red group leads me to believe you will be fairly aggressive out there) and brake noise is not an issue for you...then I would recommend the ME20's in your situation!

I used both ME20 and MX72. For occasional track use, MX72 is great. Easy on the street. The ME20's gets a bit loud after a good track event.

I have the 72s and am going to change to the 20s when they wear down is there any special prep that needs to be done to the rotors to move from the 72s to the 20s? Ie in theory could you swap back and forth or are they different compounds?

either one will crack the rotor ?
Any pads will lead to cracked OEM rotors when tracking because of the cross-drilled design of the rotors. If you're going to be tracking, consider something like AP Racing's J hook rotors. They are less expensive than OEM and won't crack like the stockers will. I got 18 track days out of my front J hooks and probably could have gotten a few more, but I replaced them. The rear J hooks still look great.

It's been reported that J Hooks are a bit noisy vs slotted. I could never hear mine due to my exhaust. Based on those reports, for street use, I'd have to recommend their slotted design.

Also, consider the Fontana Racing Rotors with the MX-72s. Nice combo.
