I have seen a lot of brake work done here on this site and I was wondering what the best setup was...... I would like to keep the brakes/rotors themselves as light a possible and still have immense stopping power.
Also I have the Ocelot brake lines from TFS and the stock brakes right now. I love how light the stock brakes are, but will they hold up for autocross or a track day? or do I need to invest sooner? also take into account my goal weight of the car finished is 2200lbs ish
The Grand Am calipers are iron... not a good choice for weight added.
If you used the aluminum Wilwood calipers with the usual brackets and 11.25" LeBaron rotors, you could probably limit the weight gain to be the same as the Grand Am swap, but have a much better result.
Thanks Will! I have seen two guys on cardomain with Willwood brakes and I was wondering how they got them to fit. Now I know the secret. Have you done this brake swap or has anyone else? Is there anything I need to watch out for?
