Reply to "Pantera Brake Improvements"

I only know the Vintage Racers. They are restricted by the rules to what they can run. I never heard of ceramic rotors being used by any of these cars during the era.

The Mustangs all seem to be using the Trans-Am Mustang brake setups that are outlined in Fords "Boss 302 Chassis" racing booklet, Stage III.

They apparently are allowed substitutions like the two piece rotors but they are all using the big Lincoln calipers with the Porterfield race pads, F250 master cylinder with 1-1/4" bore. Rotors are vented 12x 1.25".

Ceramic rotors I think are current technology for the current slot cars.

In some cases racing Vintage is like comparing a canvas skined bi-plane to the Space shuttle, but that's kinda in the point.

There is a little of that here with the Pantera, as far as how the owner conceives of his car I suppose.

It's kinda like a 60 year old guy hanging out at the bar trying to impress 20 something women. I guess some of the girls need glasses?
