How about some 6-piston calipers. If it wasn't for my seatbelt, I would have been tossed through the windshield into the next TOWN!!!!!!!!

These things are HUGE! If you can't tell by the pictures the LENGTH of these calipers are 11". I believe the front calipers on the GS are about 6 inches in length.

AL_Zr1 can jump in here and tell us more about these bad boys.

How about them brakes Patrick?They are the Wilwood 6 Piston
calipers GNIII's and the rotors are 13" x 1.375".The brakes
are worth every penny.What did you think about the performance
Patrick?
I've gotten into some hairy moments where I tried to stop
and I couldn't, I would letterly stand on the them and the car
would not stop.

SWEET brakes!! :cheers:

They are huge but they are silly light. I bet the rotors are less than 1/2 what the stocker weighs. You could play frizbee w/ the thing. :laughing:

I took a ride in a Firehawk that has those brakes. He gave it some stops from between 40-50 mph, all I can say is I bet the teeth marks are still on his dash. :laughing:

Seriously, I felt my organ's crushing from the G-force against the seat belt. I thought my spleen would have been the first to go.

:laughing: That's a good way to describe it. The only thing that may come close to the same feeling was the Tidal Wave that used to be at Great America when it would slow down as the ride was ending.

Not only stopping on a dime, but you'd probably get change back

My dad said some thing about a C4 having 2 Piston calipers. Does any one know which year it was. Im thinking it would be a mid year C4 but i dont know. He said he was going to find a pair and put them on our vette. Along with some Braces for a Vert to stiffen the baby up.
