BBK are mainly for looks. They do help, but you can get nearly as good braking performance from really good pad+rotor setup SS lines and good fluid. Unless you track your car.then they will be way better than stock, they are good at reducing brake fad, but they usually preform equal or worse than stock in normal conditions.

I've heard the wilwood's pedal throw feels god awful as well. Stiff and unresponsive.

Ahh I see. Yea I've run into that logmein issue a few times. Generally the logmein software was turned off/offline.







I've make less money staying home. I'd probably end up spending it on mods haha.

Yeah you can get some pretty awesome setup and retain the OEM size brakes.

Ya but IDC that much because I needed a day off working at the internship then going to work at the restaurant at night has been killing me. Many 13+ hour days with maybe 30 min break that isn't driving to and from.

Ordering my new projectors... Can't decide on a shroud. It's between the mini gatling or the gatling 2.0

Yeah I love the work c-lightz does but the minis require no cutting/trimming just like my old ones. There's no need to go through them since I have ballasts and Ethan is gonna make up some new wiring harnesses for me since I'm including my old ones with the projectors I'm selling.

Too bad I need new housings.... Dang it, I just may have you guys fab something up for me. I didn't even know it was that easy. How long does it take you normally to put something together? I am completely Addicted to Chris' SC420 Lexus Projectors. I'd also love to do a custom LED DRL strip, like the Audi's, on the bottom of the light housing...
