As usual, your answers are so in depth, that I definitely feel armed when I go talk to indy shops about any issue I'm having. I followed your instructions to the tee but after no improvement, I had the wheel taken off to inspect the rotors and hubs with more scrutiny. With disbelief, I ran my fingers along the fine grooves that have been etched into rotors that have only about 3k miles on them. I placed calls around town to see if I could have the rotors "turned" but because my rotors are drilled & slotted, the answer is the same. "Replace the rotor and pad."

Other than heavy braking while driving to Indy, I find it hard that this could occur so soon.

Nevertheless, thanks for lesson in "rotor run-out".
