Not much happening here with the baby boss. Driver window tint started peeling. I'll get it taken care of.... eventually. Already made a clean tear off to prevent further peeling.

Some gas station shots because why not.

Starting to get a shimmy when braking, especially at highway speeds. Based on my past experience, I checked for a seized caliper and sticky caliper slider pins first. Turns out that is not the case so I guess it's most likely warped rotors.

Got my front brakes changed! Went with StopTech Street Performance pads and new rotors. They feel great. Definitely outperform the mystery pads on the car previously.

Any chance you know the weight of the rotors ? Or maybe it was on the box?
Looking to replace mine with lightweights and drop some weight.
