Why the Most Expensive Brake System Isn’t Always the Best Choice For Your Classic Car

Posted by toby on Feb 5, 2015 4:06:13 PM

When customers inquire about upgrading their classic car’s brake system, all of our team members are trained to start the conversation with simple questions.  We ask about the vehicle’s application,  how the customer drives the car, and wheel size.  We take this approach because as a classic car owner, you have lots of brake systems options.  Our team wants you to purchase the kit that best suits your needs, and more importantly, keeps you safe.  A recent call from the owner of a 65 Mustang and the discussion that ensued is case in point.  During our chat, the Mustang owner showed interest in our Pro-Driver series with slotted and cross drilled rotors, asking if the extra dough spent on this kit would give him more stopping power.

From there, we started asking all of the right questions. The customer mentioned he had a really nice set of wheels --he sent a picture like a proud papa, and they were definitely worth using.  He also wanted a brake conversion kit that had some visual presence behind the wheels. While looking at the pictures, our customer also mentioned his wheels came in at 15”. Well, this last detail changed everything.

The conversion is designed much like the original Mustang disc brake option using low profile 4-piston calipers that bolt to an original V-8 spindle. Our approach provides for an installation that is among the simplest in the industry and also allows all 15” wheels to clear and the majority of 14” wheels.
