Thanks for the real-world info. One thing that surprised me (though it
makes sense considering the materials involved) is the brakes staying
hot for so long - definitely not a good sign in any towing or
mountainous or racing situation. It'll be interesting to see how these
pads hold up in a variety of environments as more people hear of them
and try them out....

Also, either welcome to the list or out of lurk-mode, whichever may be
the case =)
