I have my stock arm rest if RJ doesn't have his. Shoot...I've got a few things I need to put up in the FS section.

Question... Is there any give to that arm rest or is it solid stiff when you put your arm down?

Don't know yet, haven't gotten it. But Alan said it should have some give to it.

My CF armrest still has some give to it, but really only when you press down on it. The resin is somewhat flexible.

I ended up making it myself to see if I could, and because I'm cheap.

Some imperfections, but nothing major. I went the hand polished route and I need to go back over with a PC when I get one.

Nothing wrong with that. I should probably start trying the DIY route, definitely would be cheaper.

Got my rotors and pads installed this morning at T&T Performance.

Ugly stock rotor


Shiny Racing Brake rotor




I also got to ditch the roller skates when we installed the Hawk pads, so that was a nice bonus.

Looks like he did in that last pic. Aesthetically, those rotors look awesome! Curious as to your opinion regarding the rotors performance too. I ended up getting DBa's myself.

Yep, the Goodridge ones - funny enough though, I was missing a copper washer from the kit. Another member had the same problem like a week ago and everybody kept telling him he must have lost it. It worked out though, Tim had a bunch lying around so it didn't really delay anything.

The rotors are freaking awesome - though I do wish I had used them with the stock pads (that way I could see what an improvement just the rotors were), but I'm glad I did it all at once. I don't think I ever realized how "squishy" the stock rubber brake lines were until now. I can stomp on the brakes and it's just constant pressure all the way down.

Kaylee can literally stop on a dime now. I've noticed that I'm starting to play "chicken" with red lights - seeing how long I can wait before I need to hit the brakes and still stop before the line. It's a lot of fun. I need to find a HPDE near me so I can really enjoy these things.

Luckily I live kind of out in the boonies, so I get to enjoy windy backroads on my way to/from work every day. You wouldn't think that changing out rotors would improve handling - but it does. Which makes sense when you think about how much weight these rotors save over the stock ones. It's like Kaylee's a whole new car.

Honestly, you couldn't pay me to go back to the stock rotors now.
