RE: UFO brakes "warping"

Nope, they can't be cross drilled (by anybody I've talked to) due to the
design. Something about not being able to get the right tools in or
around them...

I'll probably get some Carbotech pads this spring from Larry at
Carbotech in Florida. I'll be supplying 2 sets of backing plates - one
for street use (kelated metallic pads) and one for track use (Hawk
Blue(? - I have it written down somewhere).

Try the "80mph-to-zip-a-few-tmes" approach first. That takes care of the
problem Joe describes. If that ain't it...

Good luck.
