    - - - Updated - - -

    We have our winner. It is [MENTION=51590]Pikey[/MENTION] ! Congratulations!!!!:party: Thank you EVERONE for playing.
    Done!

    Rule 2 of 2 = answer all questions correctly.

    1.What date did Power Stop Join Face Book? June 13, 2010
    2.They like two of our (GMTC)sponsors on their Facebook, Who? AutoAnything, Auto Parts Warehouse
    3.What was their booth# at SEMA 2012? 22435
    4.Where is Power Stop two distribution centers? Chicago and California
    5.What is, The science behind the Power Stop solution? (Hint there are 6)
    The science behind the Power Stop solution:



    High carbon rotors improve temperature stability and heat transfer - Power Stop uses the finest blanks featuring G3000 grade castings from the best foundries in the world. Most foundries lower carbon to increase tensile strength and hardness. Power Stop rotors have a carbon content that is 3% more than competitive brands while maintaining 210 Brinell hardness and 250 MPa tensile strength. The microstructure is an ideal homogenous matrix of perlitic and graphite flakes.
    Castings are made from primary scrap and charcoal pig-iron without residual contamination from secondary scrap metals - Some foundries dump scrap in the material with residual elements such as Niobium, Vanadium, Molybdenum, Titanium and Tungsten. These residual materials cause the formation of uncontrolled carbides in the microstructure that weaken the casting.
    Precise machining - the rotors are carefully machined to prevent stress risers, and they are guaranteed not to crack for 3 years when combined with the Power Stop brake pads. All products conform to OE dimensions for a perfect fit every time.
    Fade resistant friction - the Power Stop brake pads are specifically engineered to hold a high coefficient of friction above 1000 degrees. Where other pads show brake fade, Power Stop consistently delivers superior brake power. The company provides independent test results to compare brake performance with other leading brands. Power Stop pads feature up to 35% more pad bite and longer pad life.
    Posi-mold brake pads - Power Stop brake pads use positive mold technology. Posi-mold pads enable consistent density as the material is hot pressed at over 6,000 psi. The result is consistent performance and low noise. All pads are asbestos free.
    Zinc-dichromate plating - Power Stop's plating resists rust and keeps the rotors looking new behind those alloy wheels. Some competitors use cadmium plating that is highly toxic, and a significant cancer risk. Cadmium is banned in Europe and with all major vehicle manufacturers.

    Sweet! Thanks Tim and PowerStop. I really did not expect to win. I figured that I would just throw my answers out to help get someone to the 5th response. I am excited to install these. I might have to pickup some new rotors from powerstop now. :great:I just looked and the front rotors cost about the same as a quality replacement set at the parts store.

    awesome give away here, thank you and congrats to the winner on a great set of pads, I didnt enter as I to do not find time for the many social media's today, nor much desire to get caught up in that, used to do it, used to loose a lot of real time doing it, I weaned myself and was it ever hard, that stuff can be addicting, lol. Thanks for the give away POWER STOP, I certainly look to sponsors before other places to shop.

    I screwed up on the distribution points. Had the Chicago but that was all I saw on their site. Should have figured CA too as that's where they started.

    They messaged me yesterday and this is a copy of the text that was sent, so you know.
    Awesome!
    Just a quick update for you. There will be a little delay on sending those pads out. I should have checked with our warehouse to make sure we had them in stock first... they will be coming in next week and will go out to Michael as soon as they arrive. Sorry for any inconvenience.

    I will definitely keep you posted. I really appreciate you reaching out to me and Power Stop. Hope to do this again soon... maybe in the spring time (brake season). We will have our new website up by then and will have a lot more information and content about our products.
