Default Messed up rotors

Hey guys,

I'm planning to get the 949 brake kit, mostly because it costs me about the same to replace my junk with OEM junk (sport brakes). At my last track even I destroyed my rotors. They are so 'warped'. I just wanted to know why. Did I heat them up too fast for their own good? They got exponentially worse after each session. I know a bit about transferring deposits which cause the high spots etc. I sort of want to know how to avoid this with the new brake kit when they come.

thanks.

Pad transfer, rotors don't warp anymore.

That's why I said 'warped'

I thought they were bedded in properly, but I'm guessing I didn't do a thorough job.

Mine do. I can sit them on a table and you can see the roll out with the naked eye...but that was from a stuck pad. Are you getting a good cool-down lap and rolling the wheels after sitting parked for a moment?

Yeah, I normally do two cool down laps and I don't put on the parking brake while at the track. I don't have any brake ducting, so I'll be working on those little things this winter.
