In the interest of not hijacking the thread, I don't think it a good idea. Instead, we should refer to the ft86motorsport thread that already exists with a bunch of unhappy people.

Long story short, Slyvain (that's his name right?) likes to argue with customers and make them feel like shit. Could've caught him on two bad days when I dealt with him, but two times being hassled when you're trying to give that person money is way too many times.

Customer experience is big for me.

You're not alone, there's tons of posts about their "customer service" in the FB groups.

rockauto.com I suggest you compare prices between all suggestions, often rockauto has the best deals. I would also just search the part # of the pads you want on amazon, sometimes you can get good deals with prime shipping.


also if your doin it yourself get some brake grease and some extra brake cleaner.

Let's just say, I ordered a part, was told that it is in stock, but didn't get shipped for a month, because of no clear reason and was repeatedly told that it will ship next day and to have patience....just in a very rude way. Don't expect any customer service if anything goes wrong. For them customer is never right!!!

Also where do i get things like Omp or Sparco ?
Burning Rubber in Oakville is excellent in working on racecars, now ALL racecars since their partnership with Boost Theory, but for parts -

BRZWORLD is the place to go, he is an importer who can get anything, special orders from japan etc. and he doesn't hate the hangleesh, tabernac !

Ah, I see. So basically it's one of those places where 'in stock' isn't necessarily in stock; but if it actually is then everything goes off without a hitch. If it isn't in stock then good luck. That's unfortunate.

Thank you for clearing things up.

And the way they treat customers is horrid.

Rockauto shipping (especially on heavy brake parts) to Canada is pretty horrific. I was going to order calipers and rotors but shipping was almost $300 Canadian. If I shipped to a US address at the border it was under $100.

Did you try searching the part # on amazon. I just did a full rotor+pad brake job and I ended up getting some stuff there. The pads on amazon was the same price as rockauto except on amazon it was prime shipping.

Bummer about the shipping prices, that totally sucks. I got 4 rotors (2 front, 2 rear) and got them shipped to me in Southern California for $13.98. Hope you find the Canadian equivalent with good deals and acceptable shipping costs, if you search enough I'm sure you will find a good deal.

I remember when they first started that things were much better. Since then, I do basically whatever I can to avoid dealing with them.

I found a source up here for rotors (all four, centric blanks) for $250cdn to my door.

Nice, I got some Centric ones also, they are nice and painted. So since I just finished my brake job I was looking at the Centric rotor/pad seasoning process and decided to use this other process from Baer which goes into much more detail on what your doing and why.

I didn't like how much heat you put into the centric rotors right away (using Centrics process), and they just say go from 60 to 10 but do not say how much braking force to use. Im currently breaking in my rotors and pads using Baers method because last thing I want is to warp my rotors from not breaking them in properly due to following non detailed break in instructions.

Hit up Alpha Motorsports in Markham. They know what works best on these cars and have fast turbo and NA 86s that compete and track regularly!
