It's a track pad. Who cares if it vibrates? It's going to make god-aweful noises anyway.
I've seen guys take the 3 prong clip out on their track pads just so they can swap them inside out to even out wear and extend the life of the pad just a little (they're expensive afterall). In fact, some Colbalts don't even come with the 3 prong clip.
You'll be fine unless you intend to drive on the street a lot with these pads which wouldn't be advisable. Track pads eat rotors up when cold (and have relatively little bit).
