If they're the race compound pads they're going to be wooden until they warm up.

My best time at TWS (Texas World Speedway) is 2:08, mostly run around 2:12 and I ride L3 sometimes. L3 is not as much fun as L2. Get to do some passing in L2, not so much in L3 (as in none) But L3 is where I have run my best times.

L3 i can do a little passing, dont get passed much but the few days ive done in 3 the track always feels so empty but thats msrh. never done 3 at TWS (Texas World Speedway). TWS (Texas World Speedway) L2 is insane, pass like 3 people doing a wheelie on wheelie hill, i didnt get passed the whole weekend (cause i was in two)

The RJL pads will have a different feel that the ebc. They will have more initial bit than the HH pads tha you run. Just keep that in mind as you bed them in on your first lap out. I never worry about warming Veserah pads. They always work when I need them.

Nah, but they might start to fade a little bit towards the end of a session if you're deep into them like you will be eventually.

Based on race lap times (which yes...I know, they're faster than trackday lap times) it seems the "meat" of L3 guys are in the 2:01-1:59 range. Slower than that, and you won't pass many people. Faster than that, and many won't pass you.
