Default What happened to bonnevilleperformance.com?

Didn't there used to be such a place? Anyway, I'm going to put some repair money into my car and I want to upgrade it in the process and need some links from where to get parts. I am getting CV halfshafts from rockauto.com (the new GSP parts). I'm going to have my crossdrilled rotors turned and buy temporary cheapo rotors to use while having them turned (I hypothesize that the CV joint problem caused rotor warpage??). While I'm "in there", I thought I'd replace the brake lines with teflon/stainless steel parts (tirerack.com?). I'm going to reuse the 3-yr old ceramic pads on the resurfaced rotors. I may buy tires before winter (I'm in Illinois). I don't see a reason to deviate from the RH Goodyears that have served me well (RHs were specially produced by Goodyear for a specific tire chain that I can't remember the name of.... speed-rated tires with real good wear). Anyway, I think that stopping is more important that "making it go fast" (at least the safety should be the first concern). Finally, I'm considering opting for speed-bleeder screws because I like to purge brake fluid whenever it deviates from clear color.

You can try
WWW.intense-racing.com
www.zzperformance.com

I've bought from both places and they ship fast and everything came in perfect condition.

there was domesticperformance.com, but they folded after the owner turned scammer

and seriesoneperformance.com has stuff too. Nothing you can't get elsewhere, but sometimes hard to find series I parts.

Seriesoneperformance has lost vendor status as well. Very poor customer service.

I think he may be asking about Deathrat'* old store? Here'* what happened to him:
http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=22649

DomesticPerformance.com lost their vendor status for running off with several member'* money, including mine. He is the reason I don't have an EP LSD to this day.

Former vendors gone by the wayside for 'bad' reasons:

SC Performance
Floz
PurePerformanceFever
DomesticPerformance
SeriesOnePerformance

Give us an idea of what you're looking for, and we'll tell you where to get it.
