Re: BA Brake Shudder issues - the resolution (!)
I've had two problems with the brakes on my BA XR8:
1. The shudder on every application of the brakes, which the car had when I purchased it with 12,000 Km on the clock. They did an on disk machine & asc. fix and it has rectified that problem for now. (Now have 21,000 Km on clock and no signs of constant shuddering under normal conditions).
2. Shudderring under brakes while "Performance" driving. On the track or driving hard I think the rotors are warping with the heat causing shuddering and of course fading. When this happens I go for a slow drive to cool them off and the problem goes away (until next time). As I've strongly winged about non-performance brakes in performance cars in other threadsI won't harp on about that old chestnut again :\
I would be interested to see how the components in the fix you dscribe perform in comparison.
