please keep us updated vector, more options are certainly the key to pricing and supply....I can say that I tried those pads from Autozone not too long ago on another vehicle and they squeeled from the moment I installed them. It got worse the hotter they got too so please keep us updated.

I would gladly put up with "a little" squeal if it will help keep the break dust down. I swear, I clean my wheels and then make a run to the store and they are dirty again. I have never had a car/truck with this much break dust!!!!! 8O

Both of the benzs I had were like this. I installed PBR metal masters on them and never had a brake dust problem again. So I've been through this nasty dirty wheel scene before and it's no fun, that's why I was so interested in the carbotechs. I could really care less if they stop quicker, I just want my wheels to stay cleaner longer than 5 miles....

so far dust is a thing of the past. The wheels are dirty right now from all the rain we've been getting but before that dust was ZERO on the fronts and hazy on the rears. That's why I really hope GregV makes a set for the rear, it just isn't right having to clean the rears while the fronts are clean... :lol:

Sounds like we may have found the cure to the brake dust then.

although I love the carbotechs, money talks....If these ceramic pads that Vector are installing do the same thing then why pay double for the carbotechs?? Didn't he say they were only $45...it's $90 for the carbos...It will be hard to justify paying double for the same thing when the end result is the same, of which will remain to be seen.
