But seriously, either deezums or aidandj take me up on these BP10s or I'm going to throw them in the trash the next time I see them in the garage.

Last time I got my 15x7's discount tire was cheaper than Goodwin, even before the promotion discounts. Also they charge the same price for the 15x7, 15x8 or 15x9 Dial-Ins at discounttire.

I'm well aware of the suckage of the bp-10 pad, but I wasn't able to find any other mildly cold running pad for the street that's cheap.

I've already ordered em, so let Aiden try them out.

Those carbotech's apparently stick like wood till they're at temp. I hardly ever use the brakes, downshifting to lights everywhere. The times I'd have the pads riled up and ready to go will be pretty few. They're also $130, compared to $30, so there's that.

If anyone has any recommendations for a pad with solid cold bite, no squeal evar, sub $50, I might give it a try. I was thinking about the polymatrix E, but still double the money.

<p>I've currently got the BP10's installed, and planned to drive on them to and from Laguna, switching to DTC-60's for the track using the same rotors.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Is this a bad idea?</p>

<p>Deezums, when do you plan on trying to make the 11.5&quot; bracket. I might try and do this upgrade before the end of track season.</p>

I don't think I'll have machine time till next weekend, but if I'm lucky I might get them done a bit sooner.

I'm going to get material from KC next time I bring parts for anodizing, hopefully by Friday...

Edit - You want to print a sport adapter bracket too? I don't think we've got offset dimensions, but I don't think we need them, I think they both need to mount on the same plane from the looks of the m-tuned bracket.

I am not 100% sure just yet, kind of wait and see deal.

The application notes say Except cross drilled and slotted - 294mm diameter.

There was a factory cross drilled and slotted option, then there were regular blank 11.5" rotors, I think they called it JCW brake package. I'm hoping these rotors are blank 294's. If they're 11", eh, I probably need them for winter wheels anyway.
