Yes I forgot to mention this fact.  The dust is very bad for your wheels and
paint.  The fact that the pads do not reach optimal temperature is the
reason that they work so well at removing the pad deposits.  When the pads
are "cold" they are very abrasive on the rotor.  Use the pads only long
enough to remove the deposits, then wash your car to remove the dust left
