Pedders newest video for the Supercar Coilovers and the perfect match for Z28 brakes. Maybe if we show this enough we can get them installed at the factory with the CTS-V brakes.

Those GM security people must be every where.

Sorry Mark. I was joking around with Radz28. I was there today, but it is all confidential, secured building, you didn't see anything kind of stuff.

It was the first time I was back at GM since the track event last week. I drove up in my Camaro. I spent more time talking to people about my Camaro and the CTS-V brakes than I did on the actual business I was there for. It is so cool that there are so many 'car guys' (generic term ladies) working at GM.

Once again, sorry for the joke.

Tech II is the version that would have the 2010 Corvette brake bleed.

We do have bushing packages. Please email me a list of what you have purchased so I can review it. PGB@PeddersUSA.com

Agreed. Probably, a good idea to change brakes if going to increase RWHP by an substantial amount I'm at 418rwhp on a humid summer day, looking to get over 500rwhp at some point.
At which point would you suggest changing OEM brakes?

So much depends on how you drive. We have tracked our Pedders Camaro with the SS brakes and Cobalt friction pads running race car style laps with no issues. On the other hand, the CTS-V front upgrade is so cost effective and the brake bias so perfect that it should be high on the upgrade list. By the time we have 500 RWHP the Camaro is a two ton low flying jet and even jets need brakes to stop safely.
