Brake Modification The last bit of the build included a small and simple modification to the brake distribution block. For illustration purposes, we opened up a distribution block on the workbench. Here, we removed the spring and plunger. This allows a signal to be sent to the rear calipers. This modification is only done during the install of rear disc brakes, though, since an increase in brake line pressure is needed to apply the clamping force necessary to stop.

While we haven't fully tested the complete suspension and brake systems from CPP we can assure you it's a completely different car! Its supple ride is quick and nimble and reacts to nearly any twist of the steering wheel. Look for a complete braking, slalom, and skidpad test in a future issue. For now, we've got the autocross to check out how the new gear performs.
