Yes. The pads are high friction pads. These kinds of pads dust like crazy. Completely normal for high performance pads.
No, it doesn't. The brake rotor holes filling with brake dust would not cause them to need to be replaced more often. It's just the nature of the cross drilling. Now, if you are on the track every weekend you will want to keep an eye on the rotors (especially the front) for hot spots, cracks around the drilled holes and pay attention to the brake pedal feel for warping. Under normal street driving conditions I would expect them to last a very long time.does this mean they would need to be replaced very often?
Say what?! Granny braking on the F?yes the pads. at the rate i see the dust comming off them these pads are just ridiculous. I am not holding my breathe for them to last over 25,000 even with granny braking the whole way.
