Had to give it some gas before the pads broke free of the rotors. The pads (ebc red box) stuck to the rotor from the water/soap residue and ended up leaving ridges on the rotor that my Indy had to use a wizz wheel to grind off to make them go away. Prior to him doing that I had moderate shakes when braking.
This has happened on my ZHP several times over the years (various aftermarket pads, on 2 different brand of rotors), but I use Zymol soap not Meguiarís. Strangely it has never happened on my X3 or my old manís E60 using the same soap (OEM pads).
