correct time to change brake pads

Brakes

Joel, thanks for taking over and answering our questions.

I upgraded the brakes on my 2002 996TT to the 6 piston front GT3 calipers and 350mm discs at all 4 corners. I DE my car and have been using Pagid yellows up front, and Pagid blacks at the rear, as recommended by a well respected expert, to help balance the braking bias of the car.

My question is, since I am driving 90% on track, when is the proper time to change these type of pads? I have heard that when the pad thickness equals the backing plate thickness, that is the correct time. Others say differently. I know you have much track experience so I would like your input on this topic. Thanks.
