Andrew, (and everyone else)

	I'll second that for the Deluxe pads.  I was told, however, by 
the distributor, that the Deluxe pads are the same compound as the 
Metalmasters, just with less metal content.  This makes them heat up 
quicker, but they don't dissipate heat quite as well.  I have a friend 
that uses Deluxes on his adzaM 7XR for AutoXing just because they don't 
require any warmup.

	I use the Deluxes on my 5KCSTQ and love 'em.  However, they did 
get a little hot when I ran at Waterford Hills, but they still stopped the 
car repeatedly from ~90 down to 35mph at the end of the straight.  I also 
have brand new crossdrilled rotors, and the combination works great for 
the street.  No warmup required, and phenominal brakes!
