It wasn't until I washed it with soap that it developed the grippy feel that my new Ascent has.

Was just wondering what the mechanics of that are? What is the soap doing or washing away?
I just purchased a summit and love it. I did notice in the shop though that a lot of the discs had different amounts of grip right off the shelf. I think this is due to the release agent they are using. Kind of like the waxy film that is on brand new tires. Some have more and some have less, really depends on who was operating the molding machine that day.
