    CAN YOU STOP IN TIME?

    A serious situation has arise from China!

    Just got word that some shady Chinese company are actually making counterfeit Brembo and AP Racing brake kits. From just the looks of it, there?s little to tell apart from the originals and the counterfeits. Price wise, the counterfeit brakes are just one third the price of the real deal.

    What we can gather from the news site is that the whole operation isn?t as shady as you would imagine, as the makers of these imitation brakes actually has a showroom, warehouse and a workshop! The shop owner, known as Chen, mentions that the brakes are even used in some Macau races. Even more worryingly, Chen has claimed that he has exported quite a number of these counterfeit brakes to Malaysia. The reporter has also noted that the warehouse has stocked a lot of these counterfeit brake calipers and disc rotors, which they suspect might be for wholesale purposes.

    Haha that's the same thing I was thinking!! If someone from Trinidad happens to get their hands on a shipment and decides to pull a profit, men will be drawn to this like moths to a light!

    The question is now, how many cars, including racing vehicles are equipped with this counterfeit part?? And what is the limit of the parts themselves!?

    Yepp that's the safer way to purchase parts.. However for those of us who don't have the resources to purchase parts online, we look for the best price on parts all over Trinidad lmao I know for sure I would have gotten caught with this!

    For now just keep away from Brembo parts unless you know how to distinguish the fake from the real ones.

    The article says it's almost alike!! I'm sure most Trinidadian salesmen cannot distinguish the real from the fake!

    I also wonder if any shipments have reached here! Because the company has shipped to Malaysia and even European countries, so whats to say that they haven't shipped to the Caribbean??

    yea brotherhood, i mean the caliper covers not affecting the brakes themselves, is just to clip on, so you're still rolling with brakes, but these fake brembos causing some serious accidents, imagine someone who has a highly modified skyline or something, and they just happen to get these brakes god forbid, and they start to push ah nice 260kmh on a highway, when is time to stop, caliper just fall apart on the road, i sorry for the people who on the roadways!
