And had they been Hawk race pads instead of Carbotech race pads, what would the difference be?

It was Kalim btw who suggested anything. I was just like "hmm, pad wear sensors don't fit. KALIM! HELP!"

Normally it's just very faint white ink on the back of the pad. Just a little scrape or some baked on brake dust and you won't be able to see it anymore.
