Carbotech 1521 pads.

PN(F): CT946 ($164)
PN(R): CT683 ($152)

Low dust, no noise, etc. Very good initial bite. Call Carbotech up and ask to speak with "Mike Jr." to ask him any other pertinent questions. Tell them you go to the track with Chin Motorsports and you'll get your 5% discount.

Note: I currently have the step up from the 1521 (i.e. the AX6) on my street cars and they make an unbearable amount of dust and noise. The dust is thick, sticky, and quite nearly impossible to remove from the wheels if it's been on for more than a few weeks. Plus, the AX6 is the autocross pad so you really need a little heat in them to get them going good. I usually start my day by dragging the pads a bit and doing some medium-pressure, low speed "bites;" if I don't, they just hardly work (i.e. you REALLY have to give the pedal a pretty good workout to get the pads to bite). My next set will be the 1521s without question and based on what you're looking for out of a pad I'd absolutely recommend the same to you. I strongly suspect Mike Jr. will say the same.

Let us know how you get on.
