Haha ya my brakes would be pissed at me after that, and squealing too. For some reason my damn CoolCarbons still squeak once they heat up, disc quiet added twice and properly bedded and all..who knows

Got some roads like that down here but none yet that Ive found that have almost zero traffic on em with no stops.

yeah, the brakes actually only squealed that once that you can hear in the vid. and I'm glad the rotors are drilled because they had smoke coming off them when I stopped
