PRI 2011: Baer Brakes Puts a Stop to It
There’s an old saying we just made up: “A car that won’t start will cost you a race, but a car that won’t stop will cost you your life.” With the rise of heavier, more street-oriented drag cars, and the fact that they’re getting quicker and quicker, traditional “race” brake systems have been stretched to their limit and beyond. That’s where Baer Brake Systems has really come through, with their SS4+ setup designed for the fast, heavy cars that have soared in popularity lately.
Baer’s calipers are DOT-compliant, with stainless pistons that transfer less heat than aluminum, deep bores incorporating road-worthy dust seals, and square shoulder seals for minimum drag and maximum retraction with no need for residual pressure valves.
Street users can also specify rear SS4 systems with an integrated parking brake inside the rotor, and Baer’s patent-pending VeriSlide technology that expands available applications to include OE C-clip axles like the Ford 8.8 and GM 10 and 12 bolt.
