    Hey mate, car looks great. The rims really suit it.

    wanted to ask you what you thought about the DBA 4000 series discs, I assume they are the viper slot rotors and how do you find them? I wanted change mine with the Bendix pads too. Can I ask how much you paid?

    Thanks.

    Yeah they are the wiper slot discs.
    So far so good, i only get to drive my car mainly on the weekends due to having a work vehicle, so I give them a good workout :)
    I paid $200 per disc, and $250 per pair of Bendix SRTs.

    thanx :) hoping to get a better soundclip soonish weather permitting

    oh the wheels im selling r 19" PDWs, the ones in the pics r 20" Advanti gauntlets, i got the 19s, and they were ok, but i wanted bigger, the PDWs didnt come in 20s though, and it just niggled at me in the back of my mind, so i eventually gave in and upgraded haha.

    lol its ok

    oh and another thing bout how it sounds, i got asked by people who were working on my car stereo of i had put a new cam in it, coz they said it sounded like it had.....and being ppl who worked with lots of modified cars, they would have heard heaps of cammed cars, so i take it as a compliment lol'

    or maybe they just didnt know what they were talking bout, but for now ill take it haha

    no I've noticed that - Sureflo systems seem to have a very distinctive sound. I wouldn't necessarily call it cammed - but it is individual. Haven't come across anything similar. I haven't seen how their system is designed - is it single mid pipe? That could explain the 'lumpy' sound

    best pic i have of it sorry
    from what i could tell, there is no baffles in the central muffler, my mechanic tapped on it, and it sounded hollow, maybe thats part of it?

    I'd class that as a fault in your driveway - time for the jackhammer!

    or a fault with the guy who sold me the springs, he talked me into SSL's when i only wanted about an inch lower, now i think it sits about 2" lower lol

    maybe my fault for not sticking to my guns, who knows, its done now
