    Does anyone in AS have a computer? Are they using some other forum? Nobody is posting here.

    I don't understand what this brake thing is about. Are you guys just beating the sh!t out of them or something? I would look for some air ducting changes first, you keep them cool and bleed them regularly, they'll last. You should be able to get at least a couple seasons out of them.

    ahhhhh, not exactly... to heavy and to fast. I ran PFC01 for 2 years and they seemed to kill the rotors, 2 weekends and that was it. I think I will try Carbotech next year. they worked great on the SSB camaro I ran this year and I hear they are going to do a cash contingency deal...

    Hey guys, the two best places for a-sedan info are http://s91730302.onlinehome.us/forums/ and send a request to be on the a-sedan mailing list to asedan@stg.com . There is a bunch of people at those 2 places.

    The official rule change for AS is official in fastrack. There are several brake manufacturers that we are allowed to use now with some restrictions. Off the top of my head so check out fastrack to verify, these manufacturers are Willwood (superlite and dynalite series) Brembo (sportline series) Coleman, Brakeman, Outlaw (tornado) and Sierra. Please double check in fastrack, Im recalling these by memory. Basically they have restricted us in master cylinder choices as we must use a stock master cylinder in the stock location, as well as our 16 inch wheels which restict the super expensive rotors and calipers that are out there due to clearance of the wheels. Also our new rule dictates rotors no larger than 12.2 inches in diameter.

    I am in contact with a brake company that is willing to do all the legwork on developing a bolt on kit for AS cars for both Ford and Chevy. If I can generate enough interest in a group buy, the price will come way down. Using Wilwood components and compliant with the rules, this kit will be complete with hardware, rotors, hats, calipers, brake pads, brake lines, brackets, proper master cylinder requirements and legal. This kit would be a direct bolt on eliminating all the guesswork on the changeover. This kit is NOT yet available and needs to be developed, so if your looking to make the change quickly and painlessly as possible we need to get this ball rolling. Rough estimates on retail pricing for this kit are looking at $1700 ready to go. Remember a group buy will bring this price down. I can find out how much if I get enough interest from you the racers.

    I would like to add that if you are happy with your current pbr setup you DO NOT have to change. The rule has not eliminated the old brakes. So now there are just more choices with proper racing brakes available to use if you so choose.

    If you are interested please send me a PM and I'll get the answers to all questions you may have.

    Precision Brakes Company, www.precisonbrakes.com has developed brake kits using the wilwood components for both GM and Ford AS cars. These kits will include everything you need to upgrade to a full racing brake caliper in AS. Many options are available to make these brakes bulletproof. There will be a link on their website specific for AS cars so stay tuned as they have all the bases covered for both makes. I am involved with getting group rate prices together if anyone is interested in saving some money. To view the latest discussion on these brakes go to www.asedan.net and click on the precison brakes thread.

    you might be approaching the wrong company
    please see this website for details
    http://www.logicfusiongroup.com/pb/
    it might certainly be ok if Precision brakes screwed you but if you do a group buy and they don't deliver
    you have a lot more at stake then money.

    of course it just an opinion based on my experience (by the way I still do not have a working set of

    brakes but my wallet is $1400.00 bucks lighter!

    I would also like to say that The Brakeman stuff is top notch. It works better than advertised. Check their stuff out then look at Wilwood or Brembo. You will see what I mean. I picked up over 3 seconds a lap at Summit Point in my A-Sedan Mustang just with the brake change.
