New Brake Pads = burning smell
I just replaced my front pads w/ Project Mu NS and my rears w/ OEM pads. I did the recommended bedding of the pads (several hard stops from 60mph w/o coming to a complete stop), but I immediately noticed a strong burning smell. I've read that this is typical of hot rotors after repeated hard braking.
Can anyone confirm that this happened to them immediately after changing the pads and doing the bedding-in process?
Also, is it necessary to bleed your brakes every time you change the pads? I noticed that the bite isn't strong consistently...sometimes it is sharp and strong like when I got the car brand new...other times it is soft/spongy. I assume it will get better once the pads are really broken in, but wanted to hear thoughts.
