Brake pads for autocross

What do you guys like for immediate bite that doesn't need heat? Autocross is like street driving in a way; no warming up.

Curious what compound/brand you like.

Street pads, there is little braking in an autox. You mainly want to keep your momentum. Smooth is the key.

I personally prefer a fairly crappy pad for ax. Reason being a less grippy pad is easier for me to modulate at AX speeds.

Too aggressive of a pad and I'll lock the fronts too easily on the 911, or in the case of an abs car, trigger "ice mode" easier. I like the greater bandwidth for trailbraking, even though I may have to stomp the brakes pretty hard on occasion.

Pagid orange for me and they perform very well on short and longer autoX tracks.

I also prefer a pad with gentle bite for AX. Just a little squeeze here and squeeze there without upsetting the car. OEM street pads work fine for me. Track days are a different story where I need a lot of heat management and the ability to reign her in after a long straight.
