Re: Please comment on my suspension, brakes, and drive train plan
I can't offer direct experience on the equipment you're planning on using, other than I'm happy with my 13" C5 front brakes and EBC rotors. Rotors are coated so no corrosion on the portions that are untouched by the brake pads so they'll look good for perpetuity. The C5 brakes aren't fancy and don't say Wilwood or Baer on the caliper, but they work great and are way, way cheaper and you've already got Cadillac rear discs. I've never understood why Baer brakes are so much more expensive than something equivalent by Wilwood. Do call Kore3 as suggested for some input on recommendations on brake components including master cylinder etc., Tobin is very knowledgeable. Unless you're getting forged wheels for the aesthetics, when was the last time you heard of a cast wheel failure? You can get some very nice cast wheels for substantially less than forged and spend more on tires. Even if you're going to track the car periodically, the tires will lose traction before the wheel fails, especially if you're running street tires. You could also use the CPP tall spindles and save another $1k or so. Sounds like a great project.
