My front rotors, non slotted or crossdrilled were RRP of 480 per rotor and ford "assured" me that there was no other rotor that i could use.. Idiots - i went and spoke to cam and he hooked me up with some dba slotted ones for the el gt at a MUCH more civilised price, same with pads, cept from cam i got ebc ones much cheaper!
Havnt seen you round here lately, whats the go?


yeah the brakes are shyt(hence my first accident), but its an imported vehicle, non of em are made here obviously so yeah they monopolize on the fact and charge ridiculous prices cuz not many people stock parts for em

yeah sorree bout not being round, been busy, been neglecting the truck too, haven't washed it in like 2 months, usually wash it every week

Well found someone who works at Supercheap and I'll get %25 discount on the rotors.
