Honestly not sure, maybe CL6 or RSL29. I've still got loads of life in the 4-2s.
What are you going for next Pete? So your mates 1155's were alright? Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

The hoses will more than likely be fine, but hey, it's your money. It's not on/off, it's more that the first press of the pedal won't slow you as well as the second. Not that it will make you overshoot a junction or anything like that, it's just not as warm and fuzzy feeling as a pad that just grips from stone cold like an oem or 1144 one will
No idea on the condition of hoses but know they're rubber and no history of being renewed. Car is on 80k so will be replacing them as a precaution/ complimentary measure. How wooden is a tad wooden? I've never had track pads so don't really understand the term. Kinda means they're off / on and not much feeling between to modulate? Sent from my SM-G955F using Tapatalk

Changing the hoses makes sense.
If you've never used track pads, or been on track, the difference in pads may not make sense. I brake with as much force as I can generate two to four times a minute. I would never brake so hard on the road and no where near as frequently. 'Modulation' is a relative term.
1144s are my perfect road pad. Reasonably priced, good feel, great stopping power and no corrosive dust. They do not survive two laps on circuit. The heat generated overwhelms them.
I've used all flavours, but am currently a convert to CL (8 I think). They go on the car for the track and come off afterwards. I'm not aware of any pad that will survive track use and still stop you first thing in the morning 100 yds from home. 4-2s are a good road pad at the Pagid price point. 29s are an endurance racing pad (and exceptional for that purpose).
You can't compare pads that suit the N/A as they don't receive the same abuse.

I found the Pagid RS42s no better than 1144s, waste of money, RS14s are better. And I've never found the track pads bad on the road, just braking when rolling off the driveway seems to switch them on for me.

1155s are fine on the road, never had any problem with 1st cold braking.
they last about 5-7 laps on track before they start to fade and around 2-4 trackdays before they need replacing.... i dont think im particularly aggressive on the brakes
they do rattle around in the front calipers

Like Chris says: don't go blind on dot 4 versus 5 on the lable.
The minimum ERBP difference is only 10 degrees, and most good quality brake fluid is way above that minimum for both 4 and 5.
Read up on what you buy. Some popular samples:
The castrol SRF is in a wet ERBP league of it's own, but it's degradable over time. (ie only use in racecars)

I remember you and Cliffie bringing the last few drops in the last bottle on the Timeattack Masters on Zandvoort looking to it that we did not spil a drop when putting it in

I use Mintex 1155's, they're really good on the road and good for the track. They lack the ultimate stopping power of some Pagids on the track but its a good compromise as Pagid prices have gone crazy.
The dust can be dealt with easily by sealing the wheels with a detailing sealant, it will just jet wash off. Takes about 30 mins per wheel to apply but lasts a few years. The cold performance isnt really an issue either, yes its less then when their warm but its still more power than most cars when cold. I use my car all year round and never have any issues.

1144 don't squeal well I have 2 sets with no issues on the road or the odd track day, just follow the bedding in procedure
Changed to 1155 as the price was about the same and have no complaints even from cold

I use ferodo ds2500 in front and ds1.11 in rear, great balans without abs, does not block the front and only light squeaking with poor braking. ds1.11 is beter in cold and hot then ds2500.
