Burnishing is what you want to do to carbon ceramic brakes like I had on the ZR1. You brake 60 to 0 fifty times in a row to actually change the make up of the rotor with the heat. Bedding the brakes on the camaro is moderate braking 60 to 20 mph maybe 10 times in a row(at a minimun) just to transfer some pad material to the rotor, then drive without braking until they cool. Tire Rack has an exellant write up on their website on how to do the entire procedure..

Will do some research and find a low dust pad. Here is a site that advertises low dust pads: http://www.brakewarehouse.com/brake_...rmance-ceramic

Speed had nothing to do with it, Joe. I didn't touch the brakes during that speed run. My wife had done all the driving to the 1500 mile mark and she doesn't hot rod.

Might ask Erik @ Torq to see what pads he was using last weekend... Thread is on the home page... 1st thing he did was swap pads before hitting the track... all else was showroom stock except wheels.

Per videos and manual; only needed done prior to track use!

However both stated to avoid hard stops
