before you install pads lay a peace of 80 grit sandpaper on a flat surface. Now run the pads across them a few times. This will speed up the brake in period. Yes it takes a good 10 stops or more for pads to really stop you.
Remember front brake stops you rear brake slows you down but does not stop you in a critical situation
