Warped Powerslot/Hawk combo after 1 day

I have the power slot rotars, and hawk pads....(front and rear)I have not installed them yet, maybe i should check the (runout) before I install them, which runout being defined as how true the rotars are? How does one measure this? I just havent had time to install them yet, thats why I havent put them on yet..i dont have the ceramic pads, I got the ones for (street use) in the purple box.

Warped Powerslot/Hawk combo after 1 day

I received the new set of rotors Friday and put them on yesterday. I have the time down to less than an hour now. I put some $15 synthetic grease on the pad slides so they don't hang up. Drove around the block, made a few stops w/ them, and what a difference. No shake or shudder at all, so I was pretty relieved.
I'm still waiting on a return number from Powerslot so I send the junk ones back. I'm not sure how long it will take before they issue a credit for them. I'm not sure if they're charging me for shipping these back too, since I paid shipping on the second set.
Hopefully Mr. Truck calls this morning w/ the number so I can get these shipped today.
So it's been a huge pain in the ***, but I'm happy w/ the brakes now. I only have about 30 miles on them so far, but they feel great.
I did hear a squeak a couple times from the pads but hope that goes away.

I'm sorry you had to go through all that... my sincere apologies. If MrTruck doesn't get with you today let me know - I can get a hold of him pretty quickly via the Bat Phone.

That sucks about your rotors. I hope everything works out. I had a brand new 2004 Vw Passat it had 7 miles on it and the rotors where warped on my test drive. They replaced the rotors free of charge of course. After that the car ran like a champ.
