Svt Brakes pulsating

Hey guys
When under hard braking in my svt their is a rapid pulsation through the wheel. It doesnt feel to scary and i can control it. Its just annoying though. When i bought the car it had drilled and slotteds on it and i still have them on there. Could that be the problem.
Any info is much appreciated.
:)

I have drilled and slotted and mine are smooth as can be. If I had to guess, I'd say your brakes weren't bedded in properly and have formed cementite deposits where the pad material and the metal in the rotor have fused together and created spots of higher friction. Optionally, one or more rotors might have cracks and or be warped. Others might know better than I do but just my 2 cents.

Pulsation under hard braking= warped rotors. You can turn them if they're turnable & add a set of pads. Or just replace the rotors w/ new ones.
