Yes, it was what everyone said. I had them bleed the system again, I followed stoptech's bed-in procedure and then it was better. After changing from track pads back to the ST pads I had to do the bed in procedure twice before getting the bite back. Also, there is a slight learning curve due to they have a different braking characteristic than the stock set up and pads had. The stock system would bite hard and then even off as friction builds. The trophy kit with the street performance pads has a moderate bite and then grabs harder as the friction builds.
