All out race pads (like pfc01 and xr1) don't need bedding... in fact when cold they are so abrasive it will remove all bedding from previous pads. then when you bring them up to temp they put their own bedding down. if you want to clean off the surface of your rotors just put race pads on and drive on the street home
