Big brake kit!?

It is a Great Big Brake Kit, spotted in the spot light.

Can anyone guess what size brake rotors and how many piston calipers?  Overkill?

Wekfest San Jose Trip

This is the other part of the Wekfest SJ Coverage. In the first part, it was just the cars from the show. This one will document the drive up, a few random shots during the show and the drive back. All in all, I had a great time and the weekend was too short, can’t wait for the next road trip!

Infiniti Q60 chassis component compatibility.

Infiniti Q60 exhaust component compatibility.

As Tanabe wrapped up their summer R&D session, they tested all existing G35, G37, 350Z, 370Z chassis components on the new Q60. Although the vehicle is visually identical to last year’s G37, and many people may feel that this is enough information to assume compatibility, in typical Tanabe fashion – all parts were physically fit to the car and test driven.

The first part tested was the Sustec Underbrace (part number TUB130F),

as expected, fitment was perfect, compatibility with the Q60 was confirmed.

Next up, were the Sustec Stabilizer Bars, first the front was fitted (part number TSB150F):

then the rear (part number TSB150R):

once again, no issues. Both front and rear stabilizer bars were confirmed to fit the new Infiniti Q60.

Downtown LA: Giant Slip and Slide – Bad Idea or Fun Idea?

1376213 lg gallery pic

Image from Slide the City (http://www.slidethecity.com/)

Recently an event that went viral is now on the minds of LA residents who are debating whether this event is worth the fun or is “environmentally wasteful”.

Slide the City is an event where a giant slip and slide was put together, spanning a few blocks in Salt Lake City, allowing thousands of people to simply slide their way down and have fun while doing so. Now all the buzz is bringing this event to many parts of the US with a few events planned in major California cities.

However, as fun this may look, many LA residents find this to be a major waste of water especially due to the fact that LA county has been facing severe drought and has even laid down restrictions on water usage. Is this event worth it for a day of enjoyment or will our city pay a hefty price? Either way, Slide the City LA is scheduled for late Sept but there is a petition urging the event coordinators to reconsider holding the event.

What is your take on this?
