Default The Grond Chronicles : Perhaps not even a paragraph...

Not so much a Chronicle, but more like a short sentence

Got these today (new stock rotors) to go with my Hawk Performance brake pads and Earl braided lines installed a few weeks ago. This is to tide me over until the C6 Z06 brakes becomes widely available.

Why didn't you get drilled and slotted rotors? I see everyone raves about them.

Drilled & Slotted + Road Race = Cracked Rotors

Anyone that buys D&S rotors is for show only.

And Kyle is correct - Napa specials
