Okay, i have just resolved the same problem......
Not sure if yours is the same cause but for the record..
I have the 11.75" Big BBK with Willwood dynalites and carbotech xp 12's.
I LOVE the pedal feel and the stopping power.
Worked well for the first few sessions but then noticed the wheels wouldn't spin after a session (I like to jack the front end and turn them to try and prevent cracking).
After the first few sessions of this setup i could barely turn the wheel by hand. Couldn't figure it out...
Subsequently cracked the left rotor ( seizing was worse on that side).
Replacing the rotor the other day i was looking at some old Padgid pads and noticed they had a cut out for the inner rotor curve.
Looking at the Carbotech ones they dont have the cut out and I had the perfect relief of the inner rotor (a cliff) on the pad and that had been wearing on the inner edge of the rotor. To the point where it had a nice radius on the rotor.
I haven't tested yet but am sure this is the cause of the problem for me. I spent some time on the bench grinder grinding down the inner curve as the padgids had as standard.
I am hoping this is the cause of the pads wearing so fast as well.....
I am not sure why this is suddenly a problem after using the xp10's on the normal BBK for the past 2 years....must look at the old p 10's to see if they have the cut out.....I have to admit that if it was the cause to being a bit disappointed with Carbotek/Supplier about it.
