Perfect for performance vehicles, heavy rigs, and any auto with oversized custom wheels. Race-inspired design distributes powerful clamping energy for a high-performance bite. This is really the best brake kit in the history of racing almost most racing cars on Nascar use this brake kit. This one is really awesome and if you can afford this kind of brake then you should really get one. According to experts this brake kit can last up to 100,000kms without experiencing any problems with the master cylinder itself. The only problem was the brake dust but overall even if you buy a second hand kit set of these it is still good and can still be used if properly maintained.

2005 Nissan Altima, bad motor mounts

Wednesday, August 18, 2010 | comments

I am the original owner of a 2005 Nissan Altima and live in CA. I have driven this car everywhere in every possible terrain (across state lines, through all of Yosemite National Park, Lake Tahoe and many different ski resorts etc).

I am thorough in taking care of all regular maintenance issues and the car has not been in any major accident. It has, however, been in small bumper accidents (ie. another car bumped me in the parking lot while she was parking and other minor bumper accidents). The past several months, I have noticed that the car jerks when I shift from first to second gear. This has caused me to be gentler in the acceleration. Today, the dealer said that my right side motor mount is broken.

My question is, how often does this occur? Also, why and how did it occur? I am a defensive driver. Although I speed now and then, I am not 'heavy-footed.'

My previous car was a mid 90s base model corolla with about 180k miles on it when I sold it, and I had never had this problem with that car. Since I first purchased my Altima, I have noticed that I have many minor issues with the car (ie. rubber lining on the hood came off while driving through a car wash a few months after purchasing the car). Fortunately, they are not major performance or safety problems, however, after spending this much money on a brand new car, I expect NOT to have any such issues because they are time consuming to fix. And the extra expenses, although minor, are still extra expenses.
