I added a centering line and delineators to help keep me straight. open the rollup and fire it up, walk the exit to ensure it is clear back off the concrete pad and into the yard. did show, but I have to angle due to transition and spoiler draggging. down the long dusty path to the paved road. head into...Read More...

The calipers were mounted on brackets to work with 12.19" x 1.25" rear rotors. I used them for about 250 miles before...Read More...

I bought a unit from SACC a while back but never installed it primarily because of possible mishandling at medium and high speed. I sold my brand new unit to someone that needed one now. It looks like I might be ordering another one with this improvement. Nice work Scott. Below is Scott's announcement. NEW: We also have a Speed Sensitive option available if you would rather not have a potentiometer for adjusting...Read More...
