[V8] UFO brakes

Thanks Kneale. I do try to remember to come to a stop a bit early at lights and then creep forward, but I'm not always that good about remembering this. Plus it's not as convenient to do with a manual transmission.
I noticed the other day when I had to jump on the brakes hard to avoid yet another idiot CO SUV driver making a blind lane change, that afterwards in the next couple of normal stops there was more wheel wiggle than usual. I don't think the emergency brake application was enough to heat the brakes appreciably and I did not come to a full stop immediately afterwards either. But after the next couple of stops, it was back to normal, which is about nil, except for some uneven deceleration right before a full stop which is about all I ever notice. I suppose this could be the rears I guess.
Anyway, this weekend I'm going to try to find some time and enough road to do perform the IBT procedure. Another lister has suggested 3 hard brake app's from 110 to 75. Depending on which road I can find to do the IBT, I will choose one or the other of the methods.

I've unwarped the UFOs with half a dozen heavy stops from about 80 mph
followed by travel without using the brakes for several miles so they can
cool down. I doubt the pad material plays a part in warpage. It's
sitting at a light after the brakes are hot with the pads held against the
rotors in one spot.
