Raybestos Enhanced Hybrid Pad...anyone Tried Them?

Getting ready to replace rotors and pads, SS N/A.
Rock Auto sells these Raybestos hybrids under "High Performance/Heavy Duty."
Not able to find out much about them on the interwebs other than the typical advertising hype.
If you're using these, speak up man!

Haven't had any experience with the Element3s. I'd just go with Hawk HPS pads, definitely a tried and true pad. And they don't really produce much dust.

Thanks for the info. I'm leaning that way. Dust isn't an issue, really, I don't daily drive either of my vehicles (bus to work is the best way to keep a car nice).
You use the Hawks?

Yup, been on Hawks for many years now...since 2010. Still on those same pads, and still have lots of life left and easily 50,000 miles on them.

Don't know what's on my car right now, just got it a few months ago. It's really clean and was well maintained but most likely with big-box store stuff.
One of the front rotors is warped, and I'd like to get more stopping power. Doubt if I'll ever take the car to the track but might autox just once to see how lousy I am at it.
The Hawks might last not the rest of the car but the rest of my life. At the rate I put miles on, I'll be dead before I put 50K on a set of pads.

I put on a set of raybestos "advanced technology" pads on my escort zx2. Definitely had better grab than the regular semi-metallic pads.

I believe they were advertised as being something like a carbon-flake titanium hybrid pad. You could see the litle dark specks of carbon all over the surface.
