Thanks, I've never had this happen with other cars. Generally the brake pads will wear to the metal prong that squeals when it tells you to change the pad but never squeal just from pad material to rotor contact. Does RB have a street pad that can be tracked occasionally? (hybrid of ET and XT series)
Each car uses different brake components, as an example GTR pads (same as CTS-V & MB C63 in shape) is one of the largest ones - 190mm in length and 65mm in height (FMSI called it thickness), which is about or more than double of a normal pad used in other vehicles, and it's therefore more prone to vibration, squeaking or uneven wear
than a smaller pad due to the larger area has less margin for error in matting between pad and rotor.

Compare GTR to 300ZX stock pads = 12167/5062 or GTR is 2.4 times larger in friction area than Nissan300ZX.
Our XT910 is formulated for spirited & aggressive street driving with reserve for light tracking - No squeaking, very low dust with excellent modulation. The only difference with street ET series is it may not have as good initial bite in very cold weather but once it's warming up (after a few stops), it will be just as good as ET.
