Track rear brakes (12 5.0)

for those of you that turn left and right, how often do you change your brakes in track season? seems like my rear brakes have finally started to wear out, rear rotors more than anything. what would you recommend to replace them with? are rotors just consumable yearly?

Carbotech from Vorshlag motorsports

that doesnt help the rotor matter, since we are talking pads which compound for a rotor friendly track pad would you recommend since there are 6 different compounds? i guess rotors are just yearly throw aways?

wow, how much are you tracking it? I would think rear rotors would last longer.

I talked with the guy there and he swaps out rotors and pads to go to the track and then swaps back to his dailys when done. I've heard of a lot of guys running the stoptech brand and they like them.

this is just like suspension to me. so much out there and so many options, hard to justify spending money if i have no clue what it will actually do compared to others
