For a coupe, what are the best pads for fast road, sprints, etc? I assume there's a better than standard option - Mintex 1144 perhaps?

I've had great results from using Mintex 1144 pads on other cars so if anyone could tell me the correct part number for a SE5a I'd be very grateful. I haven't been able to find a definitive answer and they are a bit expensive to order then find they don't fit.

I did some digging and came across these:

Look that same shape as the pads on it now.
