Rt Frt brake grabbing more than the Lt Frt?

OK, All...

I replaced my OEM pads with Vesrah RJLs for a track day. When I removed the OEMs, I noticed discoloration, but didn't think too much about it since they had over 10K on them.

After the track day, I removed the RJLs and inspected them. I could see that they had gotten VERY hot...but true to reputation...no fade ever occured that I could tell.

When I removed the left side to inpect/change, I noticed that they didn't have the discoloration from heat like the right side did. I presume that since I am still running the original brake line setup, single line to the right and a line going from the right to the left, that it may have something to do with that...or might there be a different issue of why one side could pull more than another? Since it has very little miles, I don't feel that it is possible that there is "junk" in the lines/calipers or any such thing like that.

Thanks for any help.

My idea of 'gun control' is putting as many bullets as I can into the same hole.

Iím all for gun control, I just define it a little differently. If you can put 2 rounds into the same hole from 25 meters, thatís gun control!

yes clean them with soap & H20 and tooth brush after pushing them outward a bit and then perhaps push the pistons in/out a few times prior to bleeding the system.

strange thing is that it appears that it has done this from the beginning...being that the OEM pads also showed heat from one side and not the other...
