Heat often gets the blame, but a brake expert I know told me that essentially improper torquing of the lug nuts is the cause of virtually all warped disks.

Mind you, I'm not saying that. But his position was that properly torqued rotors won't warp when they get hot.

Maybe.

This is also what I have been told by several shops. They said if the rotors are over torqued it will cause the to warp on hard stops. Not sure how much truth there is to it but seems to be a common theme.
