I'm going to have to disagree w/ Craig

point 1
Pagid Blue and Orange are not the same compound, Orange used to be a good choice for a track pad that could be used on the street if you don't mind the noise, blue are an excellent street pad if you don't mind a lot of black dust.

point 2
Pagid Orange is notorious for 2 things cold squeel and pad deposition, they are an older track oriented pad, they need very carefull bedding

point 3(not craigs)
Yellow are an excellent modern choice for a track pad, like the older Orange they can be used on the street if you can live w/ some squeel. I wouldn't consider them to be a good street pad.

Good street only pads that I have used that don't squeel and have low dust, Axxis Metalmaster aka PBR Metalmaster

Textar oems don't squeel but do throw a lot of reddish dust.

also I have heard but not used Mintex Red Box and Ferodo 2500 are good low dust stret pads
