Need opinions based upon experience - which PFC compound do YOU use at the track - what is preferred?

Gotta agree, for the most part. I like 01s all around. Love the initial bite and the modulation feel. Longevity on the front much better than the Hawk Blues I had before. Agree that material transfer to rotor is much less, too. Rotors like them so far. I plan to use 01s for the season.I currently run 01s front 97s rear. I have tried the 03s and 06s as well but like the 01 best for feel. In most cars the rear pad is used considerably less and has quite a bit less impact on feel. (911 being an obvious difference) The 01s will stand up to about anything while being relatively easy on rotors. They have great initial torque and a very crisp release. They also work less from a material transfer stand point which aids cooling and swapping back to street for DE cars. For my money there's not a better pad out there.
PFC now has 08's for Cayman S front and rear. Nice pad, using now. Moderate initial bite, but nice wear, easy on the rotors so far, yet to overheat them and easy to modulate. Probably not the choice for ultimate performance, but i like them much better than the Pagid Oranges they replaced.How about the PF08s? Are the PF rotors the same diameter as stock (06 S)?
The color most importantly! LOLWhat do you like about the PF08's more than the Pagid's? Quieter? Less dust? Longer (?) lasting? Cost? More initial bite? More heat resistant? Color?
Can you let me know the price for a front and rear set of PFC 11s for a 2014 Carrera S (991)?WE are a PFC Distributor and can add the following regarding compounds
....97, 01 and 06 compounds are all out of production.
97 Compound was discontinued in favor of the 06 compound then 06 was discontinued in favor of 08 compound. 01 compound has been discontinued and replaced by the 11 compound.
We still have 1 set of 0776 in 06 compound in stock.
So currently PFC is offering Porsche pads in either 08 or 11 compound.
08 compound is their endurance pad.... characteristics are good initial bite
great modulation....the pad lasts all the way to the backing plate.
This compound is what helped PFC become the Porsche Motorsport
Brake Partner. All Porsche race cars are now coming from the factory with all PFC brakes.
11 compound has the greatest initial bite and is preferred by racers
who are serious about wanting to out brake their competitors in sprint races.
We stock all Porsche and BMW PFC motorsports pads and most rotors and hats.
WE have the pads in 11 compound for the new Cayman but don't as yet have them on our site.

Seriously though....based on track use, as neither are ideal for the street (noise/dust/not good cold bite) the Pagid had more initial bite but the PFC is much smoother and consistent. The pagid was probably better at quick stabs of the brakes, but the PFC gives me the same feel from the first lap to the last. Both pads seem to have good life, but after the pagids tore through a 2nd set of rotors it was time for a change. The PFCs so far are significantly easier on the rotors. The PFCs seem to create less dust also. Everyone has their own preferences and I know a lot of Cayman trackers love the Pagid yellows. But I would not buy the Pagid Orange again.
