Brief Description
Our affordable '63-'05 Corvette brake packages bolt on with no modification to the car. We feature Hawk brake pads in several compounds, even ceramic and OE types. Our braided, stainless-steel flex lines won't inflate or rot like rubber brake hoses, and they look a lot better, too. We have regular DOT3 or 4, silicone, and high-temperature fluids available.

Some of our packages have cryogenically treated or thermal-cycle rotors. These rotors are slotted (vented) to allow hot gases and dust to escape, as well as being frozen to -270 degrees (F) and heated to 244 degrees or more for an eight-hour hardening process. We offer a powdercoated finish on request for all calipers.

Trademark Features
We have a patent for our stainless-steel-sleeved calipers, which feature a four-micron lifetime finish and modern O-ring technology for the pistons and seals ('65-'82 Corvettes). The sleeves carry a lifetime warranty.
