PFC01 pads very noisy

I just put my track pads on for the season but decided to do a little shake down drive since I did a bunch of other stuff too.

Anyway, I noticed a squeal when driving in a parking lot. Is that normal?

Yes, that is normal on PFC01 and other race pads. PFC08 on the other hand is a little quieter when compared to the PFC01.

Very normal. They squeal at all speeds for the most part, but their performance is second to none. They also wear much faster than PFC-08s. 08s last longer, have rattle clips, quieter, but don't perform at the same level.

Yep - normal for PFC01's. Also, don't be alarmed if you hear a "clanking/clunking/clicking" noise as well because the 01's don't have piston/retaining clips so the pad is able to move around inside the caliper.

Completely normal, rattle like a mother and sound like a dump truck when braking
