Ive used them on the road but to me total overkill.

You would have to drive like a complete bell end to get the best out of them.

Strangely less dust and noise than xp8 ive found.

Awesome on track tho.

I use XP10 on the road with PF discs std. brembo calipers.

Yes overkill but it saves changing them over and re bedding for trackdays!

Also found they make less noise than XP8.

They do need a tiny bit more warming than XP8 though, ok after less than a mile though, or just brake once before you need to.


Cheers

Martin
