Regardless of whether you have iron or carbon ceramic's, you'll still get similar benefits.

As GaryZR1 says, the speed will have a dramatic impact on how many stops it takes, as high speed/high energy stops introduce much more heat into the system. Most people (including me) always recommend 60mph because 1) it won't get you thrown in jail if you're doing it on the street, and 2) the amount of heat generated in any given stop is limited because of that speed. Once you've done this process a number of times, it becomes easy to feel when you've accomplished what you're trying to do.

Here is my video..enjoy.

One more note on the subject of race teams view this procedure as being extremely important. Our company burnishes thousands of brake discs per year for pro racers. It is an important part of getting the most out of your brakes.
