Full Circle Rotor?

  1. Maxi paws can go from pc to full with a simple clip maneuver.

    I think the response you are getting is likely due to the fact that mini rotors generally have a poor track record. Your not going to save enough to justify the difference.

    Put a good quality full circle full size rotor in there and you will be far better of.

    Impact heads are the history of this industry, you pup. :)

    So are brass gravity retracting pop-up heads with hydraulic valves installed with a triangular spacing pattern. Being historical doesn't make it good.

    They have a comforting sound that transports one back to simpler times.

    I HATE HATE HATE the sound of an impact head at 6:00 in the morning. Bad enough I have to listen to all the stinkin' birds, I don't need impacts waking me up as well.

    I'd say the #1 reason customers ask us to replace impacts is for that same reason, the damn thing wake you up.
