I believe Brett means chamfering the leading/trailing edge of the pad via
a file, not taking away from the total thickness.  I think that even Hawk
recommends this in their installation procedures.

When I ran R4's this year, I had quite the time trying to get the rotor on
as well with the new pads.

Brett, how did the pads work out for the weekend?
