Discoloration rear brake rotor. What is it?

Hey Guys,

Today I dont have an issue with the Camaro but the GTO is giving me problems. Hope you dont mind my posting an A-Body question here. Anyway....

Today I removed the rearend on my 69 GTO. I noticed some discoloration on the rear driver side Wilwood disc brake rotor. Anyone know what this is? Here is a video showing what I am talking about.

Looks like excessive heat. If you have the internal parking brake it may need to be adjusted so as not to drag.

Thanks. I never noticed any dragging but I will make the adjustment.
