I was happy this summer with no brake dust. However, my combo did not stop when I wanted to. It happened once. At 50 Km/hr (31 mph) you travel roughly 14 m/sec. At 100 Km/hr (60 mph) it's 28 m/sec. That second before the pads warm up is what turned my handknuckles white on my steering wheel. It's to many meters to be taken by surprise. For me.
hey np man, this is after all a review so i figured id provide my input too so this thread isnt biased and fyi i did swap the fronts for jurids, rears are still ceramic (axiss deluxe). try that first, unless u like washing brake dust off of 4 wheels at a time. u ll get ur pedal feel back, while maintaining clean rear wheels (:
