M1144 good for track use, prefer yellow stuff on the road. Fronts are what matter

Did you find them to be very noisy at prolong braking? It's like metal to metal sort of..

It's all about balance..I found that there is not enough clamping force for the rear brakes,all the weight is at the back.

If you have a Mk2 that's all she wrote.
To the best of my knowledge they are not available for the rear.
Happy to be corrected with a link to a source.

To be fair I was using the M1144 on another car. A pure sprinter so not bothered by any noise, As I also use the MR on track I find the yellow stuff excellent

I didn't used them on MR2 either but on other car too. I find them to be very noisy compare to other pads and was just curious if you experienced that too.
