Hi Scott,

	This month's "EUROPEAN CAR" mag, as I'm sure many listers already know,
has a fairly detailed evaluation of about 7 or 8 different brake pads, no
carbons that I recall. Granted, they are tested on a VW GTI (I think?), but
this may give you something to start with...plus what the list contributes.

	BTW, the Metal Masters faired poorly in their tests; if I remember
correctly, they referred to them as a nice older compound that's been around
for a while. The stock pads fell in the middle of the pack!!
