Choosing the Right Brake System For Your Classic Car: A Three Part Guide

Posted by toby on May 30, 2013 10:11:22 AM

You’ve just gotten your classic gem out of storage a few weeks back and now after a few week-ends of cruising under your belt, it is obvious:  it’s time for new brakes.  If you have never scored a brake kit from us but have given it some thought, or if you bought a while back but find yourself confused by our product line, this post is for you.  With the introduction of the new Master Power Brakes website, we thought it would be a good idea to explain the differences between our three different sub-brands which are summarized below:

Legend Series: Our most cost effective option. The Master Power Brakes Legend Series is a complete brake system to upgrade your drum brakes to the reliability and performance of disc brakes. These kits consist of OEM style cast-iron calipers and vented rotors. The Legend Series is our most cost effective kit and a great upgrade to your classic vehicle. Installation is a weekend project that will pay dividends for years to come.

Rallye Series: Performance braking for 15” wheels. The Master Power Brakes Rallye Series takes a good thing and makes it better. This system is a complete brake solution that upgrades your original drum brakes to disc brakes with a distinct, modern performance look and feel. These kits consist of high quality 4-piston billet aluminum calipers and brackets along with the added benefits of slotted and drilled rotors. All of this gives increased performance over the Legend Series but still allows the use of stock 15” wheels.

Pro Driver Series: Our ultimate solution for looks and stopping. If you are looking for the ultimate in looks but also expect the ultimate in performance, then you need our Pro Driver Series. This complete kit is engineered to work with 17” and larger wheels. It utilizes larger 4-piston billet aluminum calipers along with 13” cross-drilled and slotted rotors. All of the brackets and hubs are machined T-6061 billet aluminum for increased strength and durability. Every component is the best available to provide the looks and handle the most aggressive of driving. If you demand the best, stop looking!

Whether you are trying to weigh your various options prior to buying a new brake system for your classic car, or you are in the middle of an installation and have questions, we want to help so that you can get back on the road quickly.  If you have any questions regarding any of the products or what something means, don’t hesitate to give us a call at 1-800-397-2076 or shoot us an email.
