Stock Brake System on F30 328i for Track Use?

Let's talk about the stock brake system for the F30 328i. How are they for track duty? I presume the stock pads are not sufficient for extended, hard use; nor is the stock brake fluid--but maybe I am wrong. How about the stock calipers and rotors? The calipers seem pretty small. If you have used only aftermarket pads, which ones and how did they hold up?

I think we should have a separate post on the same topic for the F30 335i. That would certainly be informative to people with those cars and people with the 328i who may consider upgrading to 335 brakes.
