Anybody else had similar issues?
The OEM pads might be better than Cool Carbon, as the product has been getting mixed reviews. The stock pads are dust monsters, so if the cool carbons don't produce much dust, my theory is that they will not be able to hold up under extreme braking, as low dust pads, seem to melt easily.
