No, that's simply not true. Several of us are using track pads here in the UK for street driving and they have much better bite and feel when completely cold compared to the OE Tesla pads. I agree that some pad compounds can be more corrosive, but there are also some very good ones out there which are not.track/race pads on street are a terrible idea. universally: they need heat to be effective. i would argue it's even more important here with regen, since when you DO need the brakes, they will not work. more dependant on the pad: some track compounds are caustic and will eat your wheel finish.
