I designed a Blipshift t-shirt

08 January 2019 - 09:17 AM

Shameless plug alert.

 

I designed a t-shirt that Blipshift thought was decent enough to put on sale (today only).  I'm not a designer - just a car obsessed guy with an idea that they thought was good enough to green light.  Take a look here if interested:

Carbotech pad fitment issues

24 November 2018 - 10:23 AM

For the latest front brake pad change on my 2008 NC Miata, I switched from Hawk DTC-60 to Carbotech XP10.  After the swap, I noticed a hollow clunking sound from the front wheels while driving over bumps and also when pressing the brake pedal.  After checking all of the suspension fasteners and ruling out any loose bolts, I took a look at the brake pad fitment and noticed larger-than-normal gaps between the Carbotech pads and the caliper bracket.  Here’s a comparison between the old Hawk DTC-60 pads and the new Carbotech XP10 pads:

I double checked my order invoice to make sure I ordered the correct pads, and it appears I did.  Before I raise the issue with the vendor (KNS Brakes), I wanted to check here to see if anyone has had similar fitment issues.  I’m about 95% sure the source of the clunking sounds are the pads jostling around as I drive over bumps.

 


WTB: AiM Solo DL

In a moment of recklessness and stupidity, I sold my Aim Solo DL last year.  Now I'm looking for another one.  Any leads?


Where to buy Carbotech pads for NC Miata?

30 October 2018 - 09:51 AM

I'm looking to switch back to Carbotech pads from Hawk DTC-60 (it seems to me that the Hawks wore through much faster).  Looking for front XP10 pads for my NC Miata.  My go-to vendor used to be 949 Racing, but it looks like they no longer stock Carbotech pads.  Winding Road only has the rear pads in stock for the NC.

 

Any suggestions on vendors for Carbotech?

Anyone going?  Weather forecast is looking fantastic.

 

This will be my first time attending with a tire trailer.  I'm moving up in the world!
