What you also get is a larger pad area; that means longer pad life, lower pad temps, or the ability to use a milder pad with the same results. While I do not recommend it, we had one of our track junkie customers use his street pads in the Alcon setup for a track weekend... he noted a little less "bite" than the track pads, but they held up perfectly fine.
So does upgrading from the Wilwoods tot he Alcons make sense for someone doing HPDEs and doesn't run more than 25-30 minutes at a time.

Different from the PFC DDs? Maybe a little cheaper?
