Default PFC 97's, will I cook them?

I usually run DTC-60's but I have a set of PFC 97's with literally 8 laps on them and they're mocking me. Has anyone successfully run these on moderate braking tracks?

My experience with PFC97s is limited to the observation that they didn't fade during 30 minute track sessions in my dad's ~500whp FD on Hoosiers at VIR Full. Wilwood calipers and Coleman rotors with 3" ducting. I'd consider the Full course a moderate braking configuration. In that car the two straights had me braking from 140 to 50-ish and 165 to 40-ish, but there's opportunity for the brakes to cool a bit in between.

I'd say VIR is easier on brakes. Tons of time for cooling off between braking zones.
