I think ceramic pads suck. They're great for clean wheels. I'll take any semi-metallic pad over a ceramic.

I'm still not spooked about Wix. Further, up here, nothing with a Fram label on it beats the price I'm getting out of Baldwins from Acklands-Grainger, which is a very sad state of affairs, to say the least.

8.1 is not picky on oil nor have any of the past 2 and current 8.1 I've had used oil. I've run mostly 15w-40 in summer, and 5w-40 in winter, although I've run 5w-30, 10w-30, conventional and synthetic and different brands.. It really hasn't mattered.
