Never seen this before, I wouldn't worry too much though, they just peel right off.
Only thing I can guess is that maybe they do a 4 corner balance? Weird regardless.

Those are brake balancers....you need more front bias on a car that's why the front rotors are bigger.



















And FYI I'm totally kidding...lol.

I'm lending it to them for three reasons...the weather here is somewhat less than poopy and I am having them paint gloss black rally stripes on it with the stripe going over the rear spoiler like the one at Barrett-Jackson which I prefer. As well as they are friends of mine and they need to generate buisness as best they can. If it draws traffic to the showroom (and stays clean) until I can drive in nice weather so be it. Or until they get one of thier own.

Thermal ballast. When doing heavy braking, they sink heat from the caliper...

Very cool,

Are you going to have the stripes painted over the front mailslot as well, like on the bumble bee camaro, or just leave it on the hood like the factory stripes? I think if you are paying to have them painted you should DEFINATELY go over the mail slot as well.

Any chance you'd be willing to let us know how much you paid for the painted stripes?

I think there will be quite a few people that want glossy black stripes and will be getting them painted if the black rally stripes from GM end up being matte black - as we've been hearing about lately.

What he said..^^..they are used in racing applications...DO NOT REMOVE THEM!!!!!under heavy braking (like trying to slow down a 4000 pound vehicle in less than 110 feet you need something to pull heat away from the caliper or the caliper gets so hot it boils the brake fluid basically rendering it useless. Once brake fluid boils it is no good and loses its ability to create pressure in the lines over time. Racers bleed their brakes basically replacing all the fluid in the system every few races. You can either have forced air cooling or a heat sink..in this case its the heat sink and it lessens the amount of intervals in which the fluid would have to be replaced. Just imagine driving in heavy traffic and it starts to clear up then having to stop short...and not being able to

I was kidding, and I hope you are too. A heat sink would have a lot more surface area. Those weights are pretty worthless as heat sinks, they're good ballast for storing heat but have nowhere near enough surface area to dissipate heat well.

LOL Yeah those do look like wheel weights..everyone knows the rotor and caliper itself is a heat sink...moreso the rotor..but the idea has been tested...http://www.fourproducts.com/ so the idea that it is a heat sink is not so far fetched..

Yeah I was about to say the same about basically what hole did you pull that story out of, hehehe.

Anyone actually know the truth to this?

Hey guys Just found out that is the way to tell the pre-order ones from the regular ones...










Possibly?

Im sure they have some good reason behind it. Maybe fbodfather can chime in and stop a "panic du jour" I would have thought he would have by now.

What do you mean it's not on production cars? The person who posted this is the OWNER of a 2010 Camaro that has these on it..
