I run Goodyear F1 GS-D3 on the turbo in the winter, and on the race car when it rains at our DE events. The Goodyears do surprisingly well in the rain.
I've been using Performance Friction pads on the track and like them a lot better than the Pagid Orange. The last a lot longer and are about 1/2 the price. You might check them out for street pads.
I've been trying different pad combination's at the track to deal with front lock up. It seems the problem is the big tire patch in the back vs the small one in the front, 345 rears and 245 fronts. I made a dual master cylinder set up for the race car which should take car of the problem. Smart Racing/Fabcar make one for the later years cars that would be pretty much a bolt in on the turbos, you might take a look at that. My misc. ramblings.
