Re: Longest Rotor Life?

My rotors with the stock brembos got eaten up at slightly over 15k miles. I had them resurfaced but the first splash of water warped them and needed replacing.

Re: Replacement tire comments requested.

I got 20k miles out of my runflats, now I need new tires as I'm almost out of thread. I definitely won't be getting runflats though, but when I search online there seem to be so many options but...

Re: Wheel Fitting Help

I'm really not sure that fitting a 305 on a 9" rim is a good idea (or even possible.)

Asleeper, you got a wk1 srt8 jeep? I'm not saying that what you've typed is impossible, maybe pure hwy driving, even then it's very unlikely. If rotors get warped it's because they are too thin,...

Re: Turning Rotors

I resurfaced my rotors after the breaks started biting into them at ~15.5k and got a good 1k miles out of them before a splash in the wet and they promptly got warped. I'm looking for other options...

Re: 2012 Supercharged Results….

Re: 30 degree launch...3.8sec

Never mind, found the answer with a quick google search. Interesting to say the least... in cold weather technically the lower rpm should be better for controlling wheel slip.
