I had understood that it's not a good idea to swap pad types without turning the rotors, because the residual material from the previous pad is still on the disk and prevents proper braking with the new pad.

But I've also heard that you can do just what you're doing- swap in track pads at the track, then swap back.

Are there any brake gurus out there that could shed some light on which is true?
