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.

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

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?



anyways, top gear is on, back later, if you have more questions
