Did you machine this yourself, or did you send it to a shop?

I'll measure braking distances cold and hot, speed verified by GPS. You would be surprised how well the jk axles under a tj will brake with centrics and EBC yellowstuffs. **** you smartasses.

::SELLING HALF OF MY JEEP::

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f33/?uid=152304

Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.

Do the cone test. Then you don't have to worry about reaction time. It would be all about how hard it can grip the road.

Take everything out of the Jeep and put some money on this.

The best you will be able to get is an average of 5 50-0 stops before you overheat the pads and rotors and start skewing things out of whack.

And no, brake physics do not surprise me at all. Folks perceptions of distance very often surprise me when they are accurate.

If you do back to back stops with something like a cone, mailbox, or fence post marking your initial application of the brakes to take the reaction time out of the equation, I'll be very surprised if you can get 5 stops that all end within the length of a Jeep bumper to bumper or about 13'.

If you can get an average of right at 100' from 50-0 I'll be astounded.

To give you a comparison, the Z06 everyone is talking about is about 1/2 the average stopping distance from 60-0 of 170 feet. That's in a vehicle with a very low COG, low weight transfer, large grippy tires, and huge brakes.

Good luck, I'm really looking forward to your results.

So you really want him to get used to a skewed stopping distance and then when he's back loaded up in traffic he can rear end someone? Not your brightest suggestion.

Most of his brighter suggestions are quotes anyways.

Just to see how far he can push it in terms of stopping. I don't think there is much he can get out of his Jeep now without a lot of work. 1 spare and that job box. Maybe 250lbs.

You weren't getting the full braking capability out of those brakes, Just because the tires got noisy, doesn't mean you locked them up. Also you have to come to a complete stop for it to count, other wise you didn't stop, just ask any cop.

You might want to bleed your master cylinder like you know you've needed to do for the last 9 months, putting EBC pads and Centric rotors on it doesn't make that go away.

The same guy who worked on James' brakes must have worked on that Vette, cause Car and Driver reported the ZR1 as having "142 feet to a stop from 70 mph—the shortest stopping distance we’ve ever recorded for a production car" and it uses some of, if not the best brakes in the industry for a production car.

Any chance of getting the AutoCad or CadCam file for those brackets?

That will do you no good as the knuckles still have to be machined as well.
