Myths about brakes!

I found a link to a lengthy article which outlines many myths that come up when dealing with brakes. It's from Stoptech.com If you've ever wondered about brakes pads and rotors, and weather or not they actually warp (which you'll read they never do.) Check out the link:

http://www.stoptech.com/tech_info/wp...rakedisk.shtml

It's a long read, but there is all kinds of good information you want to know.

Good post. I read this one a while back and it convinced me to not rush into a big brake setup. Bump folks, read this one.
