Oh, and don't forget the slot running down the middle of the friction material. That's supposed to quiet the pads down as well by giving the 'puck' of friction material enough flexibility to better mate with the rotor. As you probably know, uneven pressure can cause the slight vibration between the backing plate and the piston.
wtd44, Brute Stop came out about a year ago and a half ago. They are Raybestos' entry in the high-performance market ... but I've seen very little marketing of them to date. Maybe they are concentrating on the domestic muscle market (even though I know they make them for my Honda)? When first introduced, they advertised they are a carbon fiber formula but that language has been pulled off their site. For more info:
My silly little Honda Civic goes through a set of front pads every 80-100,000 miles and I just did my brakes a year ago so I'm not expecting to need anything for a while, but if/when I do, I'm going to take a good, hard look at the Brute Stop grade.
