    Hey guys, just got the GT sports in the car, it was really hard to get them between the rotor and the caliper though. The rotors were just re-surfaced due to crappy AEM pads glazing the crap out of them. Well anyways.. I was taking the car out tonight to break the pads in but, when i was going down the road, I noticed the brakes were dragging really bad. I wasnt going fast, only like 15mph or so.. I'm just wondering what i should do.. should i take them out... sand them down until they fit without a problem between the rotor and the caliper.. or should i just leave them and wait until the pads wear down a little. Im just worried about glazing the rotors again. If you guys could drop a line i'd apreciate it.

    hey john, sent you a PM by the way :)

    other than that, I would call up Aaron to ask him, or I might do so myself to maybe get some insight into the cobalts.

    I talked with Andie about the pads, I'm just waiting for a response about the fitment. I forgot to measure the thickness of the AEM pads to the Cobalt Gt Sport pads. Andie Said the Cobalts are OE in size with the stock pads.. so I think all im gonna do is take them out and shave them down with sand paper, until they fit without a problem.

    Milan,
    p.s Your Ghetto PCS phone company should be giving you a loaner phone, until you get another one!
