I can't tell you precisely what it is, but you have some problem on your rear brakes. Slightly sticky caliper, sticky piston, something. It's not totally unusual for a single-pot caliper to produce uneven wear (especially on the rear) but that's way beyond uneven wear.

That rotor wear is very abnormal. And with it coming from a manufacturer with proven quality control like StopTech, I doubt it's a manufacturing issue with the rotor.

Your brake fluid is scorched. Replace it with something that has a higher boiling point. If you've already replaced the rotors and pads, then it's your fluid. I've had the same issue before. People also assume you need some sort of drilled/slotted rotor to stop better but it all comes down to the pad compound and fluid you use.

This is what I'm thinking.
Were BOTH sides like that or only one?
