  7. A very successful attorney parked his brand new Lexus in front of the office, ready to show it off to his colleagues. Just as he was getting out, a truck came along too close to the curb and completely tore off the driver's door.Fortunately, a cop in a police car was close enough to see the accident and pulled up behind the Lexus with his lights flashing.Before the cop had a chance to ask any questions, the attorney started screaming hysterically about how his Lexus, which he had just purchased the day before, was completely ruined and would never be the same, no matter how any car body shop tried to make it new again. After the lawyer finally wound down from his rant, the cop shook his head in disbelief. "I can't believe how materialistic you lawyers are," he said. "You are so focused on your possessions that you neglect the most important things in life.""How can you say such a thing?" asked the lawyer.The cop replied, "Don't you even realize that your left arm is missing? It was severed when the truck hit you!""OH, MY GOD!!!" screamed the lawyer - "MY ROLEX!"
  8. I think he visited Mazenod 2 or 3 years ago.
  9. If you start with good rotors(true), you can safely swap the pads. Again the pads have to be good as well.
  10. I started out with the different level of Hawk brand brakes and were not happy with any of them. I tried some Racing Brake (TM) { http://www.racingbrake.com/ } performance brakes on a suggestion from Curtis and they performed well to excellent depending on the environmental conditions. Cooler weather degraded the performance and produced squeal. On the other end of the spectrum, I never experienced any brake fade on an autoslalom course. Not too sure on which level of pads I did use as I first installed them 4 years agso you would have to do some investigation on the website. I had to swap them out for my OEM pads for winter. All in all they lasted 3 seasons, one was a co-drive so I can attest to their durability. Not too aggressive on the rotors either. Will I buy them again, YES. I did not run the car with the pads for time attack at Gimli so not much input there. I will say that if you plan on doing some hard time on the track at Gimli, whatever you use for autoslalom, will not live up to your expectations ... period. It is a PITA but swapping out the pads for track days is probably a good idea if you have a bit of a competitive streak.
  11. And thank you Cara and Shane.
