    i'll give you my 2 pence, hps plus pads work well on the rear lot of grip, though i've heard ferrodo's are better. never liked ebc green stuff , not tried red though. i'm still using stock discs at the back and they're working fine , will be switching to ecs grooved. i've used grooved before with green stuff, can say they kept the kevlar pads from scaling up. preformance wise i can say 2 piece ecs grooved on front end do keep them cool at the front i'm not really getting brake fade with 6 pot callipers, not sure how much it would effect the rear

    i wouldn't think that changing pad type or groove/drilled discs would at all alter bias, and as long as you have bigger brakes up front on the street bias should be ok, but i know what you mean i'm looking for something for the rear i'd like to relocate the parking brake and put on some 993 or boxster brakes like the mtm-s4 has
