I think you are worring too much about it. I put the GT on my blue car and proceeded to flog the **** out of it at TWS and Mark will also reiterate that it stops like it's hitting a wall. We put my brothers GTs on Marks car and I have not heard a bad word yet, except that he is dying to get a set of SS brake lines.

The car stops wonderfully with the PBR's, even with the 7 year old brake fluid in my car. I can only imagine what some new fluid would do (and even ss lines). The car would do a head stand!

I really don't know what to tell you Moob, I would think you wouldn't WANT your brakes to lock, thats loss of traction and possibly control in certain situations.

Ok, I know it's been a few weeks but I've got both front tires ON THE CAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! With having to go back and forth from the hospital, and stuff with mom and my son, and just plain being LAZY!!! I have not done much to the thing. Last Friday we managed to get the right front strut and knuckle mounted as well as install the ASFBs, new adj. front strut rods, and lower control arm. Today I was being lazy again and decided I'd had enough of that and got out to install the left strut, knuckle and tire. After mounting both tires, I see that I have a bit of slop in the front and rear bearing races, so in order to move the car, I'm looking at installing the axles. Lord only knows where they've disappeared to. Right now I'm headed to McDonalds for lunch. I guess I'll look for them when I get back, but DAAAAMMMNNNNN it's hot out there!!!!!

You guys stay safe during the holidays, with all the talk about deaths and suicide on this board we don't need any of that coming true. Remember, DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE!!!!!! peace!
