Bedding in Brakes

Mr. Andrew & Esteemed Cat:

When I put the Repcos on my car, they came with an enclosure slip 
specifying that the installer should drive the car about 30 mph and 
make 8-10 NEAR-stops (not full stops) from that speed, with at least 
1/4 mile between brake applications to avoid too much heat.  This 
must have worked - the following day the car did five laps at the TX 
World Speedway and tho the brake pads stank, they suffered no lasting 

Yeah, I know, I shouldna dunnit, but my 280ZX had an illegal tire and 
wouldn't pass tech.....and my wife showed up with the Audi at that 
moment.  She was quite impressed with what it would do!
