Sounds like it topped out the struts hard, and unloaded the car.

From the pictures, it looks like the car has 14" front coilover springs. It might be time to change to a 12" spring, and tighten up the struts some.

Juice I think tires just need a couple passes on them to break end. They mixed street tires with slicks. Track sucked. This is usually a top line track. A couple of guys I know with bracket pro radials couldn't even try to hook on nitrous. They ran N/A. Tune on our car was really close. Could have added 1 deg timing   Just a hint of fuel ring. Air ended up at 72 grains. 3300da

Here's what we did on our brake pedal mod. Our brake pedal assembly was from a manual trans . We removed clutch arm and quadrant. On our assembly the brake pedal was mounted in the upper holes , there were a set of holes brake pedal could mount approx 1 1/2" lower than top holes. We removed pedal and measured down 2" down from pivot and marked center. We then drilled a 9/16" hole . Start small metal is really hard. We then ground plug weld from the lug that holds master cylinder rod. Then we used a punch to remove. Then tapped into new hole and plug welded back. Reinstalled brake pedal into lower set of holes. After reinstalling pedal assembly push rod is all most centered. Still lack reinstalling seat but brake pedal feels much better. If rain holds off we will install seat and test tomorrow.

Main difference I see between Aerospace and Wilwood, (ON PAPER) is Aerospace is 10.25"rotor, and Wilwood is 11".  Wilwood looks  prettier, but especially with an easy to find 30% discount for Aerospace...  the Aerospace is WAY less expensive.  

For old mustangs:  (V8 drum brake spindles)

Aerospace:

Wilwood:  
http://www.wilwood.com/BrakeKits/BrakeKitSearch.aspx?year=1966&make=Ford&model=Mustang&option=Drum+Brake+V-8+Spindle+Only&axle=Front+Kit

Aerospace 10-1/4" dual piston $669.  30% off $468.30  Brake line kit $95.  30% off $66.50

Wilwood 11" dual piston...  well says $783 on the list with all the others, then $996 after you click on it for more info!  Also requires a brake line kit they offer for $83.  

They have a cheaper one, but is still $857 once you click on it.  Brake line kit included with that one.  It's a little over 11", and is likely heavier.  Probably for street rod type applications.

Wilwood also offers a drag race brake kit for $834.39, plus $83  brake line kit.  Looks very lightweight.  NON-vented, 11.75" thin rotor. 

These are the matching drag race rears for the small Ford housing...  car sure would be pretty, and significantly lighter with both!   Smiley

I like the Wilwoods, and enjoy the looks of the Wilwoods...  but DAMN.

Mike my 68 mustang already has frt Willwoods and rear fairlane drum brakes. Stops like you hit a wall. These are for the foxbody. Couple of the guys at work bought the aerospace for thier s10 Chevys. They were happy with them so we went with the aerospace. Brakes already feel a bunch better after the pedal mod.

What is a factory master cylinder that is fairly small, lightweight, and works well with one of these 4-wheel disk brake systems?  Thanks!
