Fronts have only been done once around 43k and still look new, yet rears were done at 49k and were completely gone at 66k, also 3 other f-bodies i have owned were the same way! Anyone know why???
A good possibility of why: when people do burn outs they usually stomp fairly hard on the brake . in order to break the rear tires lose they must over come the force being applied to the rear brakes and by doing so creates a lot of counter acting forces which generates a lot of heat from friction and causes both the rotors and pads to wear much faster then the fronts
That's my opinion
