hi, yes, i am. although it hasn't reached 140 yet, to be honest.
but it's well over 125.
i have yet to reach the rev limitor.
i'm a little scared of what the truck will do hitting that rev limitor.
the speed limtior is totally differnet, reaction.
it just shuts down.
if anyone ever hit there rev limitor before, which most haven't since
many don't have the road/speed limtior disabled.
you would know exactly what happens, at top speed.
it's a different reaction.
that is why i want these brakes.
and for good reason.
if you went into toyota and paid 80+ for oem's, why not buy the best out there for 50 more.
much shorter stopping distane, less fade, etc...
but since i don't have them, i really don't know, only what i read.
i will post a thread when i do.
;-)
also www.placeforbrakes.com recommended by EBC because it's the nearest to me, & in south florida.
they have them for $128.04 plus a 10% discount.
i was hoping for someone that could get them at wholesale.
EBC will not sell them to me directly, @ wholesale, even though i have 2 business licenses.
where many other companys do it.
or sell it to me a cost, just to have the name out there.
but i haven't given up, it's not my style.
i never give up. it just might take a while, to find the right shop or person.

You might consider some new rotors. Something either drilled or slotted or both.

hi, you might be right. but 1 step at a time. if these don't work.
than i'll know real soon.
than i'll buy the rotors.
but i plan on getting tubing to flow right to the rotors to cool them down even more.
_________
lower bumper
or
inside the westin bull bar
air

rotor < > rotor

sort of this. it's a thought in progress. it will allow the forced air to cool the rotors, calipers, & pads.

hi the cheapest i found for the yellow pads is:
Brake Pads, Brake Rotors - Best Deals on EBC, Brembo Kits and more | Place for Brakes
they are $128.04 plus the have a promo code for 2 different order's. this order give me 2thing's.
1- 10% discount =approx. price of $116.24
2-free ground shipping
so if you went into your dealership & didn't get a discount for new oem front pads & pad $80ish for the pads.
why wouldn't you go for a pad that has to offer so much more for a little more.
if you ever got into a accident, and if you had 10 ,20, 30 more feet to stop you would have avoided the accident.
these pads, claim to do this & more. like towing, & you have oem pads, & after a while they start to fade during your long heavy tow trip, these pads claim, they won't pad near as much as oem.
as far as brake dust, they claim it's about the same as OEM.

yesterday i was loking for a way to add direct air flow to the rotor's, caliper's, & pad's. i belive this might be a simple project to do. but as we all know, alot of tmes it isn't what we thing it will be.
i'm hopeful all will go as planned,
gorilla
