Yes - rotor looks ok. But if they wear the pads like this you only really using 50% of the pad/caliper...

I'm no expert in this stuff but can't see how the rotor is causing the issue, unless the 12mm increase in dia is some how effecting. To me the issue is the calliper. The thread on Rennlist which you have contributed too could hold the answer. The guy explain that the pucks are getting pulled back off the discs by the seals and dust covers, I'd run without dust covers and see if it makes a difference then also look at seals on calipers. As others have said uneven wear is common but not to that extent. Had same issue with wear on the only set of R29 pads Ive used but didnt suffer from long pedal. I've changed pad type and fluid will report back on wear.

Sorry - typo! Ment to say caliper....

I will go over the front calipers and pop in a new set of RS19 and report back.

Just keep an eye on the pads and flip them when you start to see them wedging up, its not that hard and cheap too...

Vln and cup cars run the same caliper, there's nothing wrong with it.
