Vesrah's were available trackside, at Loudon, NH for me as well, most raved about them. You're spot on about letting a lil bit o heat get in 'em.Street bikes I've always left stock (until now) or replaced with basic EBC HH's but on my race bikes I ran Vesrah SRJL's - mainly because they were available for sale trackside by a vendor and of course they were awesome pads for a reasonable price.
I heard from a few friends who still race that the EPFA's aren't quite as immediate in their bite as the top spec race pads are but overall offer similar performance with a better lever feel - that works for me! Only tradeoff is they need a tad bit of heat to get up to proper working temps versus crappy oem pads - I can handle that.
