I just did my brakes, with Powerslot rotors and Akebono Ceramic Pads. There's stil alot of dust.

What do you use? How's the dust and preformance?

Good brakes are going to make dust I am told. I have had good luck with EBC brakes as well as Hawk pads on SVT's

Unless you want to use ceramic pads that offer poor braking and destroy rotors in short order, you're going to have to put up with some brake pad dust.

1,000 miles on rotors won't show much wear, considering a good set of aftermarket rotors should last 30,000 miles or more. And did you check the inside of the rotors, since they wear much faster than the outside? Ceramic pads are the equivalent of having metal on metal contact with the rotors...and they're known for wearing rotors out much faster than traditional pads.
