Default Time to brake...HARD!

You know your an idiot like me when you feel the effects of putting ceramic pads on stock rotors over a year ago and when you brake you have to SLAM the pedal.

Time to replace with the best of the best. First part is simple, I'll get RSM slotted rotors. However I need some questions answered on brake pads.
Ceramic vs. Carbon Fiber. Difference? Suggestions? Cheaper? You get the drift.

Also once I get them all on and set to roll, what'* the driving procedure for seating them properly?

Ceramic, cuz I don't know crap about carbon fiber pads. I love my ceramics, and the RSM'* were designed with them in mind.

Talk to Ty about seating/seasoning the rotors when you buy 'em. It'* fun Especially the 100mph-0 stop.

Well don't you already have ceramic?

Pretty much you live in one of the best places to do the breaking in. You'll get a sheet with it for sure.

Are you knocking Illinois?

Do you guys think RSM makes rotors for +00'*? Someday I'll need a break upgrade, need more miles first though (23K), maybe fall time.
