    Default Noisy brakes

    Any idea about this?

    When braking from 70ish the brakes make a dull noise, this doesnt happen below 50ish.

    Difficult to describe, doesnt sound like grinding just a dull noise. Only happens when braking fairly hard.

    VX pads are harder than other aftermarket pads.. hence the 'grinding' noise that some owners experience..( namely me ..)..I was told that if i didn't like the noise i was to put different pads in
