MASTERBRAKES WLG - Disk machining


Recommended Posts

Just had my front rotors machined by Masterbrakes in Wellington, they offer a mobile service that (from the quotes I got from other places) is cheaper than taking your rotors into a shop for machining. I was charged $55.20 a pair. The guy was fast and on time and did an awesome job.

P.S. they need access to a 240v mains socket for the lathe.

cheap chinese steel?... no thanks.

Lol you think that your rotors are standard? Over 100,000km if be surprised if they were stock. So machining chinese steel or buying new chinese steel take your pick. Or buy massively over priced chinese steel genuine ones...

They are stock because I bought genuine rotors. And they're made from Japanese steel... I know because it clearly says "Japan"

on them :P

Lewlz.

I love the way something has to be genuine to be accepted. Ever heard the term "made under licence"? Or "contract manufacture"?

Obvious example i can use because i know its accurate. John deere oil is branded to the moon and back and branding looks amazing you would think its blended in a genuine factory. In this end of the world it is blended by a third party in convict island not a john deere factory. Out sourcing is so commonplace its a joke to only buy genuine these days

Japan imported 41.6 million tons of steel last year; where do you think that comes from O_o

China makes a lot of steel... some good quality and some bad. I don't buy Subaru rotors because I think it's Japanese steel, I buy them because I trust Subaru to test all products that they put their name on to be good quality. You can easily see the quality is poor on $40 rotors... and I don't mean I can see that the steel is weak... but there is generally less material used.

Honestly, the China bashing on this site in general is shameful. It's like post WWII Japan bashing. What are we, the USA?

I wasn't bashing the Chinese... just stating they make a lot of cheap and nasty stuff.

Their food is pretty good though :D

Actually the Europeanised version is good... if you go over there is pretty bad. mostly they eat pork fat.

And GC8E2DD, mentioning a WWII Nazi ally when criticising a so called racist attitude towards China, shows some

pretty dubious thinking on your part.

That's the thing about racism; it is passing judgement on things purely based off nationality. Pretty dubious practice regardless of context. You can't ask someone to make something for you on the cheap, and then become an overnight racist when the thing they made wasn't magically as high a quality as the more expensive one you were trying to avoid. There is paying for quality, and paying for name. I try to opt for the former without stabbing myself pointlessly with the latter. The nationality of the people who made the thing has zero influence.

But why is it about ethnicity if a country is criticised for something? Is just mentioning a country in a negative context racism these days? Is saying that China sucks and cricket racist?

You weren't talking about China ...

I'm sorry, are you upset because I said "cheap Chinese steel" instead of "cheap steel from China"? Are you mad?

      You are absolutely right. Declaring past debts to government agencies, even those that have been repaid, can be an important part of the application process for a variety of reasons. It shows financial responsibility and transparency. The same can be said for gambling, even casinos, which you can read about at https://www.slotozilla.com/nz/minimum-deposit-casino/1-dollar should also operate transparently. Of course, there are black casinos on the Internet, but they are not popular, because you never know whether you will withdraw money or not. If the form asks for information about past debts, it is usually best to disclose it, as this reflects honesty and can help establish trust in your financial information. Always read the specific instructions on the questionnaire carefully, as they will tell you what you need to specify.

      Afternoon team,
      im new to the group first time posting. Im hoping some body can help me get my launch control all dialled in on my link g4x. Ive had the computer and car all tuned from chris at prestige awesome knowlegable guy super happy with the results but now im wanting to get my launch/anti lag all dialled in. Ive been reading multiple different forums etc all with different conflicking information which has made me nervious with what do i listen to this or that if you get what i mean. Now ive started to make myself familiar with my PClink software etc the past few weeks and im eager to learn how to do minor setups or tweaks etc so im not relieing on my tuner so much and obviously saving myself abit hurt in the back pocket. 
      Now back to the question at hand.... Im wondering if theres and one who could please share there knowledge and wisdom with setting all my values, timing, fuel etc when i have launch control armed and engaged, or even a launch tune file they can possibly send me to load onto my tune. Ive figured out the setup of my digital inputs turning launch control on etc and its obvisously on its pre set factory settings. It engages but doesnt sound the greatest or as angry as it should i feel. Hence reaching out to you good buggers. 
       
      Cheers in advance for any info and help yous maybe able to give me.
       
      Cheers Shaun
