I don't think that would apply to my case...

My 2001 has been driven hard (road & track) since I bought it new. It has 140K miles on it and still has the original drums and shoes in good shape. I've never put that many miles on rear discs before changing at least the pads.

I'm just stating my experience here. If you have a suggestion as to how to get that many miles out of a set of rear pads on a car that is driven hard, I'm all ears.
