Re: Brake Rotor Recommendations?

I think I've read that some folks ran flexible tubing from the front to the brakes to provide cooling air. No idea if that actually works or not.

Re: Will switching from conventional to synthetic hurt my SL2?

I remember reading speculation in the late '80s that the feds would require synthetic oils (and possibly ban conventional) in the near future.

The market was generally unenthusiastic about...
