I came upon this site recently. It's got some 4G stuff. Might be worth a look if you're like me and are tired of paying duty/getting raped on exchange.

Good find. Free shipping to all provinces on all items I've looked at too!

But crossing the border with "scrap metal" is a nice way around duties. If you're up for the drive

Looking at the exchange today and it's about equal to what we pay here in the U.S.. Looking at a few parts and doing the conversion there is a little mark-up, but not that bad, but someone has to pay that import taxes. All in all, when you don't have to go through all the crap to get a part... it's a good deal.

And yes, I did bookmark the page.

I looked in the brake parts section, and among their story of slotted or drilled rotors was the comment: these slots provide to increase the surface area of the rotor and therefore, improve the stopping power....If you're taking surface area away to grind the slots, how can that increase the surface area?

Explain...

Lol. You are increasing surface area but reducing contact area. Whoever wrote there marketing is not a break person. Lol

For every action, there is a equal and opposite reaction. When you apply the brakes you create heat and gases. If you can not expel these gases quickly, they react onto the forces that are being applied (Floating). Drill, or slotted rotors allows gases to be quickly dispelled allowing the rotors and pads to maintain contact while breaking action is applied.

We can also add by allowing these hot gases to escape we keep our brake parts cooler and there is less heat transference to the calipers and the brake fluid. Heat will cause the brake fluid to break-down, and if the fluid gets to hot, it can/will boil (See different boiling points of DOT 3, 4, and 5 fluids). When the fluid hits these higher temperatures, brake fade occurs, just like not having any brakes what so ever.

Did I mention that brake fluids should be changed every 30,000 miles, or every two-years under normal running conditions. So if you are running tracks every weekend maybe sooner.

Dang. Or cars use DOT 3 right? I hear DOT 5 is not ABS compatible. Is this true?

When I upgraded my rotors and pads, I also replaced the brake fluid with DOT 5, I have not incurred any problems in the past 7 years, so....

The neat thing about our brake systems that they are a sealed system. There is only two-ways to loose brake fluid... a leak, or your pads are wearing so more fluid is left in the brake caliper. Hmm!!

In todays brake systems you will notice that the brake reservoir is made of a see-through white plastic, so why do people open their brake system to check their fluid level?? I don't know!!

Anytime you do a brake job, you should also change your brake fluid and in this process you will also be bleeding your brakes. You now have new pads, and a fully top-off brake reservoir, install the cap and never open it again!! This way your brake fluid will not get contaminated.

If you keep an eye on your reservoir, you will see your fluid level go down as your pads begin to wear. That is because as your pads wear, the caliper pistons start to extend further, and further to keep up as the pads wear. So the fluid that was being stored in your reservoir, is now being stored in the in the calipers pistons. This is normal!!

Now when you look at your brake reservoir, and the fluid looks awfully low, could this mean that it is time to check your brake pads for wear... You bet, it's time to check them!!

In most applications, unless you live in the mountains and do a lot of heavy braking, your brakes should last about 45,000 miles, or 4 to 5 years. Brake fluid is an oil, and like any other oil, once opened and put into use, it starts to break-down. Brake fluid should be change every 30,000 miles, or ever two-years. Guess what, both the schedule oil changes for your transmission fluid, or trans axle is the same, and the same holds true for your clutch fluid.
