Installation was a bit of a pain but, that was due to me. Once I got past that the pads went in quickly. Pads seated to the rotors well and I have been stopping effectively since I installed them. What more could you want from new brake pads.
I put these pads on my focus st paired with steel braided lines and they work well for the street but are just ok on the track. On the track I found myself having to brake much earlier as i got more laps in because the wouldn’t grab as hard once they got really hot. 75 miles on the track plus about 1000 miles of daily driving and they have a bit more than half the material left. The noise isn’t super noticeable to me but they do create a lot of dust (not something I care about but others might.) overall they’re great for spirited street use and very light track days but if you want a pad mainly for track use I would go with something more aggressive.
A must have for good braking and good product all around
