Too much autocross has glazed the stock commuter-spec rotors on my MR2. What are the best “big brake” kits for such a car? I autocross it a lot, but it’s also a daily.
Because... weight savings?
See, this is what happens when you don’t inspect your brakes THOROUGHLY.
I am good at ignoring noises. The sound a wife makes when you don’t do your share of the chores. The noises a child makes when they drop their toy for the umpteenth time. These all fall on my deaf ears. But what I have never been able to ignore is unusual noises coming from my vehicles.
Have you ever done something so absent minded when working on a car that you thank your lucky stars ‘it wasn’t worse’? I had one of those events this weekend while working on my 2006 Infiniti G35 6mt sedan.
Being still under initial warranty did help though. Complained to the Dealership(Not Stealership this time around) about vibrations between 40-50MPH and sticking calipers that made noise at low speeds. Rotors have already been resurfaced twice. They did ho hum about whether it would be wear and tear or warranty when I…

You talk first? I talk first?
A few years ago, I was introduced to the wonderful world of rust-free copper-nickel tubing, for brake lines. I think the stuff is awesome, but how awesome is it, really?
The FieSTa got new brakes this X-mas eve, which it was desperately in need of, on the front at least...
Then I installed my wife’s winter tire.
Painted all four calipers black.
“My car makes this wooshing noise...”
Don’t ya just hate it when a repair has to be done twice?
15,700 miles and I think my rotors are slightly warped. Braking over halfway full from 60-65 produces an ever so slight vibration. Nothing bad, but it’s there. It doesn’t shake the steering wheel but I can feel it all the same.
