strange brakes are excellent choices as well. but the aerospace brakes are considerably less expensive.not too mention they look real pretty.
the reason drag brakes work so well and you can pick up E.T. with them, is that they are designed to back off when you let of the brake pedal.
unlike stock brakes that are always draggin.
when you let off the brake pedal with aerospace brakes or most other drag brakes,the pistons suck back into the caliper and pull the pad away from the rotor. factory brakes don't do that. and not to mention you save a ton in rotational wieght and unsprung wieght.
when aerospace told me i would pick up at least 2/10 in the quarter with thier brakes i didn't beleive them.
they gauranted i would pick up 2-3 tenths ,so i said send them to me.
and they did exactly what they said they would.
and in reference to the other guy that posted that his wieght savings measures were the best ones, i will argue that.
the best wieght savings you can have are the ones that are free. buying a fiberglass hatch and hood are very expensive. i don't have either on my car and i gaurantee it's lighter then 98% of the foxbodies out there.
