All done with my track prep other than completing the bedding in:

At the end of fade 3, is there a concern if you cool them off too quickly? IE if I do the fade 3 on the interstate with a good break in traffic, will I cool the system too quickly if I drive home 20 minutes? Or should I roll to a stop some place safe and read a book?

Is the pace of the cooling important for seasoning the brakes?

Thanks

I have done the bedding and not done it on my track cars. It is recommended to do but the two instances I didn't do it I couldn't tell the difference. YMMV.
My bite was worse after bedding unfortunately. Track performance was okay. I'll try hawks next time. When I first mounted them they were very good and encouraging. After bedding they were good enough but not impressive.

Motul 600

Didn't change lines yet. Didn't have any fade issues, just modestly impressed with the bite which didn't really change cold to hot. Put on brand new front OEM Brembo rotors for this set of pads. Rear rotors were fine so untouched.

Lines would likely help but I'm not sure how much this car will be tracked. Likely changing to a more dedicated track car before long because 4200 is a hell of a weight to feed tires. I want to go back on much better tires at least once but the itch will likely be scratched after that

Motul 600 is good it's what I use, change the lines to SS. The answer you seek is Miata.

Garage mate was the builder:

advantages:
Cayman weight and handling
$250 motor vs $4000 original, used prices each
Selling OEM will fund the conversion
+130 hp
-20 lbs
Bolts up

Disadvantages:
I haven’t read the build page yet, just pitted next to the originator
I surely don’t have a fraction of the time or skills of the originator
