My question is to RB people - do the pads on the photos look like yours? There were no marks on them. If they are, I warn GT-R owners to think twice even if you get them for free.
From the pictures, i noticed that those were not bedded in properly, the rotors has tons of residue and the face of the pads are glaring like no other.
From what i read so far concerning these rotors and pads, the proper bedding procedure is a MUST and if it wasn't performed correctly and taken to heavy track conditions, this could happen.
Change the rotors and pads and perform the proper bedding procedure and then take them to track and come back here for another review.
I've got a friend who tracks his car 20 times a year and he's a good driver and yet the rotors are still on his car for the last 4 years.
