Ceramic typically is a bit more harsh. The general rule is that with ceramic pads you have a 1:1 change ratio (meaning when you change the pads, you change the rotors).adaptabl said:How do they affect the rotors? I had a ceramic clutch(centerforce) in my Stealth and it chewed up my flywheel in 20,000KM. Very little wear on the clutch, but one dead flywheel.
You have it backwards. Cermaic pads are more agressive, so when the pads need changing, so will the rotors. NOT when you change the rotors you'll need to change the ceramic pads, although it's a good idea to.alderran said:My new rotors are starting to warp after 10K miles so if I put on ceramic pads I guess I can look forward to changing the brakes at every oil change
Honeywell has been looking to sell off it's Friction Materials business for many years, even before I started. There is a deal in the works for Federal-Mogul to buy it. The deal most likely won't be signed until the second half of the year. The deal isn't written in stone so it may not go through, but all indications are that it will. If it does go through, since Federal-Mogul has it's own design team (they do the brand name Wagner) it's doubtful that I will be joining their team. I'm not even sure what CAD package they use. Since I'm a contract worker, I'm double screwed. Basically I'll be back to square one with submiting my resume. I can submit it to Federal-Mogul or to Honeywell for some other division (I wonder if Garett turbochargers are looking for anybody).viprman said:Hey, Brian I saw your signiture. Are you going to be out of work? If so, why?
Not sure why I changed them at 22K... now I am at 32K. They weren't really bad but the wheel would shake pretty good on a hard brake getting off the highway... it's just starting again feels like it did when it first started the last time was around 14K.Warlord187 said:

Why are you having so much problems with your rotors? My stock rotors only had slight warpage at the time I changed them. My current rotors are doing excellent.
