Irregular pressure on the pad can make 'hot spots' on the rotors and lead to premature brake fade.
Well then how is it that the 'The Hack' on these forums who does a lot of racing and uses BMW OEM single piston calipers on the track has not had a problem with brake fade and for that matter many others have not either?
