From a couple of emergency test stops Ive done Im not that happy with whatever pad is in the car. Im hopefully off to Mahia tomorrow for the day, I should be able to report back after that. Im also going to change the fluid, planning on using this:

Feel at the pedal?

Pedal travel increasing?

Pedal spongy?

Just not much bite.

Maybe have a chat with race brakes, explain that lacking in bite rather than needing massive track based heat range.

From cold or when they got hot?
By "bite" I assume you mean you need more pedal force than you thought appropriate?

Have a good look at the CoF (co-efficent of friction) for the pads you are considering on the site I linked to earlier. Some pads are biased towards cold, some hot, some have a relatively flat CoF and some actually increase as they get hot. If you can find out what you currently have and can find their characteristics yoou can then look for pads that are better in the range you feel there is a weakness and, hopefully, without introducing a different problem.
These are my thoughts and opinions - sometimes I'm wrong, but not often ;-)

Echoing the comment above, I recommend calling racebrakes - they will sort you with a suitable road pad.
