A trusted indy mechanic performed the install and bedding procedure for me in 2 cases of failure, while I did it all myself the third time. The rear brakes, where the heat build up is much less, are also/still centric/stoptech, have never exhibited a problem for almost 7000 miles now.
Let me guess, the 'trusted indy mechanic' is the jerk off know it all at the Oldwick Garage...
