I've had my brakes on my rig in 4 hi lock up all 4 39" red lables and spin the backs loose from the rims in soft dirt far enough that they lost air and almost went flat.

That was when I was running internal beadlocks and had lost pressure in the tubes.

I can make the brakes stop your tire and rim combo, what you do with your limits of adhesion after that is all on you buddy.

I just read a new MotorTrend or something....the ZO6 stops from 60 in 93 feet. That's DAMN impressive. I want that.

Tony is Flatlander757. I knew you would eventually get to my point... it is all about adhesion (why my last Jeep didn't stop for **** on 28.5" even though I could lock the brakes without trying).

I'd love to see the video of that one. I'd more believe 193 with reaction time involved, maybe 93 without.

I will venture that the brakes capable of doing that are easily the cost of a newish TJ X with some trimmings.

Try getting the brakes to work on some real tires someday. It's quite interesting.

I'm sure it was a cone-based test so reaction time doesn't play as big of a part. But yes, every magazine review I've seen has recorded sub-100 foot stop times for the vette. I know the M3 and 911 GT3 (hell, any 911 for the past 10 years) have always had great braking performance.

You mean like my 31" MT/Rs. That stops pretty well. Can almost hang with my sister's Sunfire and that pulls your face on a hard stop (that is of course just at the edge of locking the brakes. Both lack ABS).

Just watched a show on the Z06 and that is one fantastic car. The frame and roll cage is aluminum which is 30% lighter than the standard Vette. The brakes are huge!

Yeah, amazing car. Maybe we can chat about it when you accidentally call me to talk about the "antirock" next time.

I was that customer, and I am forever in Savvy's debt - many thanks to you and Gerald for your personal generosity to a stranger. The brakes are awesome, and I take considerable pride in knowing that they were originally earmarked for the Savvy Unlimited.

I highly suggest taking it for a test drive, I haven't been impressed with a stock vehicle in a long time until I took one for a ride.

60 to 0 in 93 feet, psh, Bennettj13's jeep can do that in 30 feet.

They wouldn't let anyone take one out without a sales person going with them, lets just say the woman that went with me wasn't very happy with the test drive.

That's good for everybody, cheaper manufacturing costs, the end user doesn't have to figure out which part is for which side, that's just going to save a lot of time and money, good call.
