Anyone using DS3000 pads with solid discs?

Question above.  Can the standard solid discs cope with extra heat from a higher friction pad or do people use vented discs with the Ferodo DS3000?

its only relative to the pressure applied.... 

I run 9" all round with DS3000 on such a light car its no problem, the rears are likely to suffer first due to their location having a lower air flow, which can be easily addressed with a little ducting.

However if your concerned I suggest running heat paint / tabs on the calipers and discs and see what that offers up in your application, you may find a subtle change in balance is required
