18" apex wheels with 6p brakes

Been running 18×11 apex wheels with s550 6p brakes on track and until recently they've been fine. But just ran big willow on them for the first time and the barrels of the front 2 got scraped. I'm assuming it was when I bottomed out at turn 9. Anyone else have this issue?

Strange, rather even scrapes on the caliper. Did you have internal balancing weights? Have had the same brake setup for years and only had that problem one time with badly placed weights. Or maybe some track trash got in-between the caliper and wheel?
