Yep. at least some of the carreras have a pad wear sensor, but it doesn't affect pad compatibility (except of course you can't use the wear sensor on SC pads). The wear sensor is useless for those of us who check there brakes once in a while.

To continue this, would there be a benefit to switching to a stainless steel piston in place of the stock pistons in the SC/Carrera calipers? Or is any benefit too small to bother. I know the correct answer is to get some even larger rotors, but I'm a cheap bastard.
I don't think that would be an advantage. The material to use here would be 6AL-4V titanium for the pistons. It seems like it would be pretty easy to make up some pistons for 'A' calipers on a mill and lathe. No doubt the seine titanium shims would be cheaper, but I would think full titanium pistons would be more effective.
