as martin said - not a problem. i'm running DBA slotteds up front now, with stockies in the rear - next change, slotteds will be going on the rears too, without a doubt. if it stops me that 30cm quicker, they've paid for themselves :wink:

no you shouldn't!!!! forget those other wankers they know nothing.

If you put slotted on the front only it upsets the balance of things, my fridge stops and causes my beer to warm up - you don't want that to happen!!!

Are you OK?

No doubt slotted all round will be better, but there is no reason he cant use them on the front n not the back for now.

Yeah, if you're fronts need replacing, and not the backs, do teh fronts now, and teh backs when they're needed, no point wasting otherwise fine discs.
