[s-cars] The Big Blacks shimmy

Hi Igor;

Paul Freidenberg recently posted a similar problem with his BB setup (993
calipers, S6+ rotors). As I recall he tried several suggested remedies to no
avail and finally solved the probem by turning the rotors. The thread should
be in the archives - around mid-June this year, I think.

this is strange.
My Big Blacks shimmy under light pedal application ONLY if I am braking
from above 60 mph. The steering wheel shakes rather violently if braking
from above 100 mph. No shimmy whatsoever in city traffic in stops from
50 mph and below.

I am utterly puzzled. The brakes have been properly broken in. And no, I
didn't do any track events lately, just normal city driving. Hell, I
didn't even warp my G60 in previous years.

My set-up:
928gts + RS2 + S8 (323x30mm, by Zimmermann, slotted) + Mintex Red

Any ideas?
