I have Zimmerman xdrilled rotors/akebono euro on all corners installed in April. Last week I was driving my kids to school. I have no stop sign for 2 blocks, but cross traffic does. I had a feeling of something as I coast around 35-40mph near the intersection. I had my foot kinda hovering over my brakes. Suddenly within 50 feet of intersection, a honda accord approaches and I'm thinking, RU stopping or not?!?!?! In a split second, I slammed on the brakes and I swerved just a tad to my left. When smoke settled, I just glanced at the driver and was speechless. Damn Asian woman driving just smiled, waved at me and drove off. I checked my kids to see if they were ok and luckily only got shoulder/neck soreness.

Cliff notes: Akebono euro brake pad works.
