It's advertised as a "very low bed-in time". I have run them straight on the track. Ping John Hutchinson just to make sure. scrc john...

As I stated in my PM, everyone should make sure they clean their rotors when installing new pads. Even if your using the same pad compound again. Scotchbrite the rotor on both sides be liberal with the brake cleaner and really clean eveything off the rotors. There is old pad material embedded in the rotor that can effect the new pad's performance.

I have put fresh RJLs in my SV and gone out and raced on them. Bed in time is very low that’s for sure. One warm up lap and they were good to go. I agree that you should scotchbrite the rotors. I try to do this at least twice a year and when I switch pads, but it does not always work out that way for me.

I did scotchbrite, a couple panic stops in the pits, then two warm up laps and they were good to go. Good brakes yes, but not sure the XX's were worth that price tag!
