    And yes, I have searched already. I am trying to find 60 to 0 stopping distances for 348 and 355 models. Also I have been looking for a guide that tells what colors were offered for a particular model and year. Any help greatly appreciated. John

    zjpj, there are several cars around this board, both 348 and 355 that have done this brake upgrade.
    Dino, thanks for the hard data, that is quite an improvement and worth the money spent.

    Remember that the numbers are only true with the TIRES they were tested with. Tires are the most important part of the equation when you are talking about 60-0.....if it's your 4th or th5 consecutive 100-0 stop, the brakes will start to coming into play. Godd tire mean high corner speed and fast stops. Big brakes take more abuse before overheating, but reduce acceleration because they are heavier.

    I just figured - limited production cars mean limited production parts... which means that they aren't available to put on other cars. Where do you buy the parts? Can it be done on any model? - I guess as long as the wheels are big enough... That's so cool :)
