Not so much a problem, just an observation...
My roommate put powerslots and HPS pads on his RSX, and my new CRX has powerslots and EBCs. He started noticing noise when he was backing up, like a small thud, from the brakes when he put his on, and I'm noticing it with my car now as well. Is that normal, something to do with the slotted rotors? I was just curious as to what causes that noise and if something is bad with the brakes.

I have slotted rotors, and they dont make a thud or anything. The only noise mine make is the sound of the gasses from the slots when i'm braking. Kind of a wosh noise.

yea, its pretty cool. I didnt know what it was at first, but I guess it a good sign that the slots work. I dont know it it will work on yours, but it should.

make sure that the pads fit in the holders tightly... . could be just the pad shifting positions.. or the front side of the pads leading edge needs to be beveled down as it may be hitting the slot in the rotor... causting the noise.....

prob nothing to worry about... . . but def. worth pulling the wheels off and checking things out just to be sure.... . . I mean they do stop the car...
