Default miata street/track pad?

After a few track days on stock pads, I'm considering trying a more aggressive pad. Not a track only pad, but something in between street and track. It's a 2004 mazdaspeed miata. Any suggestions for an appropriate pad?

I happen to like Hawk HP+ - I've also tried Hawk Street/Race but those are both even noisier and I find them a little too grabby (they're basically race compound pads with an extended temp range that makes them work OK on the street).

I also like the HP+ for dual use street/track.

But note that if you are waaaay more street than track, they will get noisy as they polish the transfer layer off the rotor. Mine are quiet at the track and for a few weeks afterwards, then they start getting squealy... time to go back to the track, I guess!
Slow cars make faster drivers... at least that's what I'm telling myself.

StopTech Sports. I'm very happy with them for both autox and track days. Very reasonably priced thru RockAuto.com as well.
