whats up guys, im buying new cross drilled rotors for my car and i was
wondering where I could get intructionals on how to change them.
Haynes Manual. You should be able to get one at AutoZone, Advance Auto Parts, etc... for around $15.
Google (http://google.com) is your friend
i tried google ...so that doesnt help me.
I heard you shouldn't go for cross-drilled rotors, and they tend to warp a lot...same with titanium :thumbs:
Really? How about providing us with some supporting documentation to back
this semi-statement up. Or is this more... well you know? :doh:
Do they have car parts stores in Chicago? Then go visit one and purchase a manual.
Unless you're using period-correct brake pads that release gasses when hot,
cross-drilled rotors don't improve performance.
If rotor holes actually are drilled instead of cast (this includes most cross-drilled aftermarket rotors), the rotors are prone to cracks, and ultimately failure around the drilled holes
BTW I didn't write it, but copied it out of a book...
Most properly made cross-drilled rotors are done by higher-end manufacturers...
Is that not true?
Read the post in question and the post above. Except for the subject
matter (rotors) you're talking about two completely different things. Not
once did you address warpage... Or titanium rotors. The tap dance may
work with other 15 year olds, but not with me.
Can you support your initial statement with reputable sources, or not? My bet is not.
That quote was from David Vespremi...he's pretty respectable if you ask
I was mistaken about warpage in cross-drilled rotors, but I knew that they weren't good (at least most after-market ones)
And I didn't mean titanium rotors would warp, I meant that they were not good...
As odd as it may sound to you, words mean things. Read the quoted post
above and then compare it to the one that started this exchange. Do they
convey even remotely the same message? NO! Have you ever heard the old
adage "a little knowledge is more dangerous than no knowledge at all"?
Right now you're pretty f*cking dangerous. Think back to that flurry of
PM's we exchanged last week. Remember me telling you that those who know
can readily identify those who don't know? Remember me telling you how
hard it is to repair the damage done by those who pretend to know and give
out sh*t information? You're guilty on both counts bucko.
Think, type, submit.
My message conveyed a similar message though...after-market cross-drilled
rotors are very often not the best way to go...and titanium is not good for
But I see how that could be taken the wrong way :ohcrap:
i bought the cross drilled ones becauce i thought they are better than regular ones...so now you are saying they suck.
I guess I shouldn't really be listened to on this, but from what I read...most are not drilled properly...check if yours are cast or drilled...
