Brake Dust?

I've been running my Mustang at the track fairly frequently and whenever I do the race pads dust so badly that the car gets covered in brake dust. I've tried to wash it off but it seems to stick to the paint. I've even washed the car with a deck brush and it certainly helps but it still doesn't get it all off! Obviously, scrubbing your car with a deck brush can't be good for the paint. Has anyone else experienced this and what have you done to remedy this situation?

John

I don't know for sure but I have been told that the metalic brake pads create more dust than the semi-metalic or the ceramic brake pads do. You might try changing pads and see how it works out.

Correct. Go to ceramic over the carbon metallic pads. When the dust flies it is heated and will melt into an aluminum wheel finish and the vehicle paint.
