....  I left the set in the rear, but found the .55cf just too agressive for
the street on the fronts, and a high propensity to eat rotors......   The
cool carbons with the ceramic barrier seem to work better and you don't need
to bleed the brakes after hard driving.....  And about 1/2 the price of the
pagids (and ned don't sell em any more), yes, glen, THAT'S expensive........
