RE: MetalMaster redux

Metalmasters are not good 1st stop of the morning.  But after that they work 
ok.  Low dust and not great in the wet but not horrible.  All in all I give 
them a B for street use.  Now on the track a solid D+.  As far as noise I dont 
hear anything when I brake other than my tires screeching going for that 10% 
wheel lock.  I am running them on Anderson Bros. drilled rotors (ATE).

I don't mean to stir up a hornet's nest, but I'm still a bit baffled by the 
variety of opinions on the <insert your favorite bashing word here>Masters.  
would seem that most of the unfavorable opinions are from folks who use the MM
on heavier cars, such as the 5k.  

Are there any 4kq owners out there who are using MM for street-only use?  If 
would you kindly share your opinion of these pads?  Also, are you running them
on stock rotors?  If not stock, then what?  

Some listers have expressed their dissatisfaction over cold & wet performance.
Have any of you 4kq owners who use MM seen problems in cold or wet weather
conditions.  How 'bout noise, too?

Thanks in advance,
