Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall. Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

I wasn't to pleased with Wilwood's fast road pads, but nowadays you can get Ferodo DS2500 for the Powerlite 120-8729 4 piston unit and they are pretty good for both road and the occasional trackday. I used them myself for a few track laps and on 2 trips to the Alps already. Ferodo model FRP3108.
