Post How-To
Big Brakes for Small Wheels
Despite The Fact That Nearly All Factory Performance Cars Come With Very Competent Braking Systems, Upgrading Beyond The Factory Components Has Become Very Popular

By Terry McGean Our '67 Camaro is relatively stock and sees frequent road use. Like most Camaros produced back then, it came equipped with 91/2-inch drum brakes on all four corners controlled with a manually operated dual-circuit master cylinder. The brake system seemed to function as GM intended, but today, those standards are marginal at best. Even cruising around town, stopping was something that had to be planned in advance. We wanted to keep the 15-inch steel wheels in service, but until now that meant our options for brake upgrades were limited to factory-type disc brake components.


I sold my Camaro,hope the current owner drives it.

What's the point of this b/c we all know it!!! pdq67

PS., and my wife used to get real upset whenever I had to make a high-speeed panic stop by first slamming on the brakes and downshifting through the gears as my ***-end bounced and hopped around all the while as my slapper-bars were reverse slapping!!!

Boy , that stuff ain't gonna happen again with my pdqCBB setup now, ever!!!
