Hmmm I have to think on that one. As it's a brake upgrade and quite a few folks only think of going fast and Dyno racing...not about stopping..lol...I will shoot a few PM's though.....

Well it removes about 5 lbs of unsprung weight from each corner which certainly helps acceleration. If they combine that with a lighter wheel than stock, it makes for a nice improvement in acceleration, handling and stopping power. Thanks

Yeah dyno racing is such a competitive sport lol. Thanks; you know a whole lot more people on this forum than I do. I appreciate it! Can't wait to get those rotors on my car behind my rims. Those blacked out hats are going to make the shiny rotor surface look like a floating halo around the hub. In addition to all the performance benefits these should look seriously cool.

Heck yeah them performing great and looking cool in the process is awesome...I think I am going to start a performance calculation thread for vehicles..maybe folks will start to think before modding their cars..and not just because everyone else is doing it.

There should be a thread for performance and a separate one for show cars where looks and style while sitting on a carpet with other show cars is the primary purpose.
I just made one with a calculation link...hopefully the discussion will be good and my post a great starting point.

I promise though that if/when I get on a race track I WON'T close my eyes LOL.
That reminds me of a joke...

Excellent idea!

There was a post from Pedders regarding an owner wanting to drop their car in the weeds... AFTER he bought tires/wheels with incorrect offset.

Yeah I saw that...think before you mod should be a theme...but some folks like the "appearance" mods and there is nothing wrong with that...but when the two worlds cross...ummm strange things happen..lol

hehe... I was wondering how you guys could post so many "relevant" posts. I read all over the forum and try to post things that are at least reasonably useful lol. I was thinking "man, where do these guys do all this posting!?"

Yeah I saw that post. I know a lot of guys do these mods and don't really understand the full ramifications; they just get what they think looks cool or badass and don't know what that might actually be doing to their car. Not many guys are going to admit "I removed it afterwards because the experience sucked" although some actually have the guts to say so. A car isn't just a static image; it's a sophisticated piece of moving machinery.
