Them’s not the brakes

Australian Muscle Car - - KB's Keepsakes -

“The prob­lems I had with the Ca­maro’s brakes are well known. This was one of the many ex­per­i­ments I tried. The Group C tour­ing car rules for brake calipers were free, but you were re­stricted to the size of the orig­i­nal disc. So I tried this ar­range­ment with two XU-1 calipers. When we had a pedal, it was re­ally good, but the sus­pen­sion up­right was flex­ing too much and we were get­ting tremen­dous pad knock off. I don’t think we ever raced it with this setup. I used Edco six-pis­ton cal­lipers in the end and they worked re­ally well.”
