Default AVID Brakes

I have a couple pairs of the AVID brakes for my RC8. Anyone running these and what are your results and experience with them?

Thanks

I've been running avid brakes for mugen and xray for years and they are the best I've tried, rarely fade, very lite and last for ever. The only other brakes I would compare are the craddock's high temps but those are hard to find now.

You made a good choice.
