Default PowerStop C6-Z06 Trackday Brake package

This is going on my '78 Trans Am. I have been running a C5 Z06 brake package.

Well...that should make a noticeable difference in braking force!

Looks like your helper approves as well.

Any changes to the master cylinder as well or just the brakes? Just curious, don't know of a reason it would be needed...

I'm already running a 1" bore master, so I think that's going to work out. I don't know, there may be something I need to do with the rears to control bias.

Yes, like 40% more. The thing that I think I'll notice most is the heat dissipation. The brakes got very hot up a PPIR on the roval after a few laps of hard running.

Are you running power or manual brakes? I am thinking about doing the c6 z06 brakes on my 73 Camaro and I'm trying to figure out which mc I need to go with.

If you don't already have the brackets to mount them, I would give a shout to Tobin Knighton at Kore3. Fantastic products and great tech assistance to help you get the best/correct sized master cylinder/booster/etc for the combination.
