Disc Brake facts...
The harder the pad the longer they last
The harder the pad the shorter the rotor life
The harder the pad the more prone to squeal
Ceramic and metallic pads cost more because of the higher co-efficiency of fiction, better stopping power and they won't necessarily last longer.
Soft pads wear quickly
Soft pads stop good
Soft pads don't eat rotors
Soft pads will mask the squeal from a poor installation job
Do not confuse soft pads with Cheap pads, good soft racing pads are made from highly refined organic materials of some secret formula....
90% of brake squeal is not the fault of the pads, it's worn pins, worn sliders on the caliper, incorrect installation, warped rotors, cheap rotors, overheating of the pad from excessive drag or high speed stops.
The pad material does not stop the car, the resins mixed into the pad material come to the surface by capillary action when heat is generated, it's the quality and amount of resin in the pad that creates the co-efficiency of friction and stops the car, the "Puck" is only a carrier for the resin. You can have two identical looking pads, cut them with a pocket knife and they will feel the same, one will stop the car from 120MPH easily without smoking, the other ones will overheat and fade as it doesn't have enough resin to stop the car and the puck will just burn up. If you've ever seen a pad that was glazed over like glass on the surface this usually indicates excessive heat that has brought too much resin to the surface and the resin has burned onto the surface, throw them away they're all used up and just wear out very quickly and can take the rotor with them.
