Gents, besides warped disc, what else could cause brake shudder?
I have some serious shudder, but only sometimes, I'm inclined to point at the master cylinder. Could that cause a pulsating? Like ABS almost...

And please, don't skim them.

I'm not sure what size discs you have, but unless they are 330mm or 305mm they shouldnt be expensive.

Autozone priced me R305 per disc for the 284mm on the front of a 156. And its normally about R150 to skim so pointless and the shudder often comes back with a vengance not long after skimming.

Autozone don't stock 116 breaks, lol!
But I found out the problem, something that lance said the brembo guys get. My rears got warped after I drove it hard and parked it with the handbrake up, spoke to Gorgio and a few other 116 guys and they all said I should't use it after some spirited driving. So I've sorted it it out with some breaking from a high speed 120kph,cause that is legal speed :rolleyes: then driving without touching the pedal and parking it WITHOUT the handbrake....
And all this cause I decided to fix my cable, lol!

Ah cool, so it was mainly Brake etching - brake pad material depositing onto a hot brake disk - so a decent brake bed-in sequence solved it...

See avatar, I have the sexy GTV :p

You better run hard and hide well
