Default Stuck on Brake MBX5R

the brake kit comes with markings on one side and nothing on the other. does it matter which side I glue the brake pads onto the metal parts to? the side with nothing or the side with markings? thanks.

Most guys I know that run the stock brakes don't glue the pads. Personally, I run the Thunder Tiger option discs with just the metal calipers.
