About this book
Brake systems are one of the most important yet least understood vehicle systems. Brake systems can be intimidating, and they aren’t the first thing the average horsepower junkie chooses to upgrade. But there’s no reason to wait until you have a problem to learn how your brakes work. High-Performance Brake Systems: Design, Selection, and Installation gives you the knowledge to upgrade your brakes the right way the first time. Author James Walker, Jr. doesn’t just tell you what to do--he uses over 315 photos and plain English to help you understand how and why your brake system works, what each of the components does, and how to intelligently upgrade your brakes for better performance. There are chapters showing you how to choose and install the most effective rotors, calipers, pads, and tires for your sports car, muscle car, race car, and street rod. You’ll even find special sidebars detailing how each upgrade will affect your ABS system. Whether you are a commuter, a casual enthusiast, a weekend warrior, or a professional racer, this book is perfect for you.
