    Default *General - Warped discs; myth or fact?

    Good article that examines the issues involved.
    Worth a read if you have a pulsating brake pedal.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    Default Warped Discs....no myth...

    Hi Alan, I once had a car with warped discs. The effect was a noticable grab/release/grab/release effect on braking.
    As soon as I fitted new rotors braking was a new sensation, really smooth and predictable. Definitely preferable to the old warped tragic rotors I had replaced.
    Apparently they can warp if they wear down too thin, below recommended specs.
    Cheers...George.
