RB Rotors - Brake pads?

So I got myself those beautiful rotors at all 4 corners with Porterfield R4 S pads. I just had a track day with 7 x 20 min sessions at LCMT. Much more consistent braking than the OEM rotors + Cool Carbon pads.

Only thing, I have used over 50% of the front pads. The rears roughly 1/3. I also noticed metal filings sticking to the calipers. Looks like the slots are chumping off the pads. Any thoughts? Maybe harder pad compound for longer track life? Otherwise 2-day events will require a new set of pads each time.

Is track only pads the solution for track and changing to softer material for street?
SB, Terra, 6MT. Only a few mods here and there.....nothing extreme!
