anyone else have a unibody which gets hot on the left side only?

If its getting hot on just the one side then I suggest a stuck caliper may be the cause of your hot braking problem.



Seriously though does it matter what the cause is? Its 5 months old so take it back for repair/replacement, dont tell them you haver been using it like that though as they may say further component damage is caused by you using it knowing it gets too hot.,

Make sure you back up your stuff, sounds to me like its ready to pop.
