Anyone running the Front Sport Kit with Stock Rears. Thoughts on Pad combo's. I got the BP20's which I hope was not mistake based on what I am reading in this thread. Rears I am looking for a good pair... maybe W3's or Hawk Plus or EBC Yellows

Try a hawk performance + pad in the rear. They work amazingly with my stage 2 front.
As for the bp20 pad, I could ask for a little more bite, but theyíre cheap options that last a good while on an extremely demanding brake track (my home track). Iíve never had brake fade issues and they lasted way longer than stock caliber pads that cost 3-4 times as much

BP20's up front are not bad on the track, especially given how cheap they are. Not a huge amount of bite and a little squishy, but no issues with fade (on a stage 2 kit, at least). Seems relatively easy on the rotors. Be prepared for plenty of squeal and dust on the street.

For the rear pad, I'm using XP10's. No problems there. I've always liked that pad on this car though.

I've used DS2500, EBC Yellow and again DS2500 on DBA plain rotor. The EBC were inferior performance wise but absolutely quiet

You think all EBCs would be quiet? Low speed squeal is my biggest woe with the BP10ís or 20ís or whatever I bought with these. Iím considering getting the rotors spun then getting EBC Red for street driving.

I have the Stage 2 up front and the sports in the rear. I donít even know if EBC has sizes for those or where to buy them.

Have you tried Polymatrix Q? It's a Wilwood pad designed for minimal noise/dust. I think I'm going to give them a try.

Has anyone noticed more wear on the front drivers side pads compared to passenger side?
Through 2 sets of pads me, and another 86 driver have both noticed it with our stage 2 kits running BP20. Not sure if itís a track, pad, or calliper issue.

I havenít tried anything else. From what Iíve read, everything squeals that is semi-metallic, which is why I was either going to switch to organic ďnormalĒ pads or go ceramic like the EBC Red Stuff, but these seem to be ceramic too, so Iíll look into them.

And all brake noises have gone away. Either there's something embedded in your pad that's causing the noise or there's something on your rotors. I actually do track days with my car and I remove the rotor and the brake pad and put on a completely different set of rotors and brake pads when I am on the track. Now obviously my race brake pads are unGodly noisy and I'm fine with that. But those brake pads are only on for the track.
They were squealing at low speeds under light-medium braking from day one. This seems to be universal, and it makes coming to a stop in traffic unbearable. Light braking or firm/heavy braking seems to be fine, especially at high speeds.

You know, I like this idea. Iím aware that people will swap pads for track days, but that always seemed odd to me because the surfaces wouldnít align or seat well, right? But in your case, they are a matching set.

Iíll look into doing that.

I just ordered the Polymatrix Q pads. I'll post a review here to let you know if these solved my low-speed squeal issue. Will also be putting Stoptech SP or OEM pads on the rear as well, so hoping this combination will be completely quiet for street use.

It is kind of frustrating to read reviews online. Some people say the BP10ís I have squeal, while others have the 10ís or even the 20ís and say their squeal is gone compared to their old pads. I donít know if these are short term reviews or long term.

Where did you buy your pads? I donít know where to buy or what size to get these for my setup, but Iíll look forward to your review.

I also didnít find rotor upgrades on RR Racingís website. I thought the steel rotors could be upgraded to two piece rotors, but the one piece rotors listed seem to be cheaper than the replacement discs for the two piece, which seems odd.

Two piece rotors are significantly lighter. Youíll pay more for that minimal unsprung weight.
