agreed, but if i go to drilled - or ventilated - rotors i'll stick to porsche oem stuff since they are cast that way rather than weakened by having holes drilled into them iirc. seen some aftermarket rotors get cracks forming between the holes..
Yes, stuff like that drilled "Zimmerman" crap cracks faster than... you can say "crack".
For the most part brake feel with the same calipers is influenced by the pad's you have on em. The composition of the materials used will dictate the operating temperature at which they will bite their best. So extreme racing stuff sucks for the road , but a slight upgrade will probably provide better bite.
I was quite pleased with the stock brakes on my mk3 16v (286mm vented rotors in front) . But if I went real mad I could experience the failfade.
They didn't really upgrade the mk4 brakes accordingly to its weightgain over the mk3 imho. But in the end it's all a case of preferences. When I had to change rotors on my 1500 kg 150 hp car which also had 286 mm rotors in front, I didn't bother with slotted or drilled , because I would probly warp em just as fast as the regular stuff.

OT : lower it

There's a storm comin' that the weather man couldn't predict,
I start the ball prick; you better flee cuz I' get ticked
It's a rap, I was down, when I was down I was kicked
I got up
I'm bout to punch ya to the ground, ya trick,
It's a trap,
**** my last CD. The shit's in my trash,
I be god damned if another rapper gets in my ass,
I hit the gas and I spit every rap as if it's my last.
You can die in the blink of an eye,
So bat ya eyelashes, and keep winking and blowin' kisses
Cause you're flirting with death
I'm destroyin' your livelihood, I ain't just hurting your rep,
I catch a flow and get goin',
No remorse, I'm showin' they slowin', for no one,
Knowin' there is nothing you can do about it
Zeroin' on the target like a marksman,
The target is you,
I shut ya lane down,
Took ya spot, parked in it too,
Watchin' it flow, lighter fluid, saliva what can ya do,
Go get ya crew to hype ya up stand behind you like 'whoooo!'
That boys hot enough to melt hell, burn satan too,
Fry his ass, and put his asses back together with glue,
See you can hate em, he don't blame you frankly he would too,
This game could ill afford to lose him,
How 'bout you?
Wash/wax/detail today. Quality bonding time.

Also started to clean my faded headlights but realized I am going to need some high speed action on the buffing side. And since I don't have Johnny's wrist skills...

Also, Lowes Motorsports intake. Shit sounds tight. You can really hear the wastegate opening now. Bring the hate.

Also, Little Trees Mafia, and how I get down after a long day of phuxin' wit the ride.

Mother ****ing rolled the GTI to the Dirty Jersey today for the ****ing first of many epic ****ing car shows of the year. Got that shit chipped like what. 18psi on 93 Octane ****ing Shell premium quality shit. **** yes. Y'all niggas can't even comprehend that shit. Boost all up in this bitch.

I didn't have time to wash my car yesterday cause I was busy being ****ing amazing. But when I got home, the car was spotless. Why? Cause ****ing dirt is afraid of boost. That's right, mother****ers. Forget detailing your shit. Get a turbo. It's the real mother****ing deal. God damn. It reminds me of something great that someone great once said.

"I'm an F18, bro, and I will destroy you from the air. I will deploy my ordinance to the ground." -A great warrior

John's GLI? Ain't got shit on this. I can't even take off from a light without spinning the tires and driving over some ****ing Camry in front of me. Traction control? ****ing bulb burned out from flashing so God damn much. Shit. Hit a buck ten in 3rd gear. Looked down and said "Holy shit."

Also, new tires cause my old ones were beat like a Mexican whore's vagina.

Also, Koni height and dampening adjustable coilovers sitting on my bedroom floor. Holy shit I'm going to ****ing lower it like Johnny is going to have to do to his standards if he ever plans on getting a girlfriend.

****.

PS this is an epic thread.

93 Octane? You run your cars on diluted urine over there?

US measures octane differently from the rest of the world. We use RON, they use.. something else.
