      I wish that forum restricted the content to "justrolledintotheshop." I looked through it last week, and there were a lot of stuff I've already seen, and some DIW stuff.

      Has great potential.

      Actually brake systems designed with enough piston travel to wear through the whole rotor and into the vanes impress me.

      I'm not sure where I grabbed this from.

      I am confident you are wrong, but instead of illustrating why, I will just make disparaging remarks about your reading comprehension.
