Front brake setup includes: Howe large bearing steel spindles, Brembo 13" x 1.25" rotors and Wilwood ultra light billet aluminum 4-piston calipers. Weight: 54lbs per side.
Our goal horsepower for this project is somewhere in the 700 range, and with an all iron big-block Chevy under the hood some stout brakes are required. That's why we picked up this beefy but light brake setup. This setup comes straight off of a cup car. This is probably the best brake setup available for vehicles without ABS. With some insane stopping power and significant weight savings up front, I think this will be a valuable addition to our truck.
We will update the blog next week and give you a sneak peek at the rear brakes and front suspension (also from a cup car).
