At how quickly my (mostly) stock Fiero can shed speed. All I've done to my '86 base coupe 5spd is upgrade the rear brakes and I can go from 60-0 in almost nothing flat. Now, it takes it forever and a day to get back up to speed, but from cruising speed to stopped is crazy quick.

That's no joke, I drove Rallaster's car and it does stop insanely fast just with the grand am up-grade on the rear.

I've ridden along in Emc's turbo 2.0 car. It has the Grand am upgrade all around, with an S10 brake booster, and stainless steel brake lines. That car stops like no joke.

I'm eventually going to do the Grand Am front upgrade, but I'm not sure about the booster. I'm not too confident in my ability to do the proper modding to get it to fit right.

To get the booster to fit correctly or the you're talking about grinding the front knuckle?

Rodney's coming out with a booster kit that will make it much easier.

Yes. LOL Actually I'm not entirely sure what modding needs to be done, which is the main reason I haven't done it yet.

Aside from putting a die on the original rod, and hammering on the wheel well a little, its already plug and play.

That's awesome. I'm going to keep an eye out for it. When he get's it done, I'm going to add it to my 'to-do' list, and probably do it when I do the 3.1L swap.
