FYI - I pointed you at that article so that you could learn something about the depositing of pad material on the rotors, not warping per se. This is a necessary step with some types of pad material - you have to get an even coat of it on the rotors before they work properly. Racers know this well and as you move to higher performance pads you have to learn about it. Also, those stops have to be hard - just short of lockup - stops from about 55-60mph. If you do it right, the rotors turn blue. Watch out for brake fade and don't do it where there is traffic. A lonely road with a high speed limit and no traffic on Sunday morning at 6AM is usually best. Good to hear that it is working better.
