Yup, used them for years. Used to be you had to know Gary (Gallagher)  
to get them, they weren't available through the usual channels. Big  
difference between them and the lower quality (but streetworthy) HH  

Oh, the breakin instructions - may have changed, but:

Run up to 25 mph, brake to a smooth, not hard stop. Repeat 5 times,  
let cool and you're ready to go.
