ATE power disc pulsation when braking

My ATE Powerdiscs have had a high frequency vibration as I decelerate
through 35 mph - 25 mph. I did not have this issue on my C4, though,
only the C5. I've also recently begun to feel a warped vibration at
high speed, so the Powerdiscs are on their last legs.
I, too, will return to a flat rotor, but not OEM. I'll probably mount
up a flat Brembo; the OEMs warp easily.
