Hi Guys,
I have a full set of stock rotors and brakes that have never been cut and the pads are about 3/4 - 1/2 left. The rotors are warped but can be cut. If someone local wants them, they are yours. Hopefully my days of warped rotors are over!!

I am there with you.... How did you solve the problem and stop the disc warp? I need to do it too.

Thanks,

after 6 supercoupes and 2 Mark 7's and 11 Mark 8's, I can tell you the best way is to use a torque wrench to torque the wheels EVERY time one is loosened. Next, I use stock rear pads, and semimetalic front pads. Break them in properly - 6 hard stops from 60 mph and let them cool completely.

Hi Ralph,
"How did you solve the problem and stop the disc warp?"
After replacing the rotors with stock and having them warp within 2 months, I decided to try something different (and hopefully better).

I went with the slotted, drilled rotors and pads from Spinning Wheels. Since then, NO WARPING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Also, I am still on the original pads from Feb. 2007.
