Yes I would follow this procedure as close as possible. Most brake pads come scorched on the face to provide quicker break in times. The EBC pads are not scorched and actually have a layer of "break in coating" which is a super high friction level material that is supposed to bed into the rotor giving you ultimate performance.

The first 80-100 miles are important in getting to coating worked into the rotor. Be soft on them for a few days.

The full width contact patch they are referring to is the rotor face. Make sure the pad is wearing evenly.

After all this, do the 10 hard stop bedding procedure, let them cool and you should be good to go! No need to drive around for 800 miles, that is more for used & beat rotors.

See the "band" going around the rotor face, this is what you are aiming for.
Thanks Chas…that makes more sense!

Will the band still be the same for the type of rotors that come with the Stage 5? (Btw, are those types called slotted, etc? Do the spiral lines have a name that go around the rotor?)

Matt

They are slotted / dimpled rotors. The band will still be there except not where the slots are. The slots help remove debris and keep the pad wear even on the rotor, preventing the dreaded rotor pulsation that these trucks get.

Another thing to add. A lot of people like dimpled and slotted over drilled and slotted because the drilled ones can actually crack unless you buy a really high dollar ceramic rotor such as used on race cars. I like the dimpled because i know i should never have a cracking problem. They really bite well and last!

How is everyone determining what model to get? I don't have any specific needs, other than I have the TW mod bug so I've upgraded everything from stock thus far, might as well keep it going haha

I'd be coming from stock OEM brakes.

Thanks

Got A little dusty during final break in

People are determining their kit choice based on dust, bite, and of course price. I like the stage 5 kit because they bite cery well, i don't mind the dust at all, and they are priced very well (at least from TAP the are).
