11" rear disk brakes used with a flanged axle rear end.

Why front brakes on a dragster? There are several advantages. First they only weigh 16 lbs. or 10.5 if you get the aluminum rotors. We use the front brakes operated with a hand lever in the drivers compartment separate from the foot operated rear brakes. A performance advantage comes from the fact that on a "normal" burn out on a dragster or altered when you finish the burn out you roll a certain distance before stopping and then have to back up. Here lies the problem first this procedure allows their rear tires to pickup bits of rubber and debris from the track especially if you do not back up directly in your tracks (often you don't). The crap your tires pick up is the first but not the only problem. If it is a cool night (early or late in the season) and the track is cool you will find with a "normal" burn out coast and back up the tires cool down to what the track temperature is. In our car with the front brakes we do a short clean burn out and then roll just a few feet into stage with tires that are 20 degree hotter than the "normal" burn out. Sedan cars have been taking advantage of this for years and now dragsters and altereds can do the same. This method takes less time to execute stresses the engine and tires less and produces better results. If you add to this the safety factor of a separate independent braking system (In testing I've stopped our car from 150 mph with only these front brakes on 2.5 x 17" tires with not problem) now you can make pass after pass with out pulling the parachute. One fact I can share with you is that with the front brakes operating on a separate lever - if the car wants to bounce a little in the braking area a little squeeze of the front brakes will stop the bounce IMMEDIATELY. Now that is adding to safety.

Your car needs the front brakes and only because you have never driven your car with these front brakes you cannot imagine how good they are. Everyone who had driven the Drag Race School cars and used the front brakes swears by them and are adding them to their new cars.

What is the down side of these brakes - None !!!  
Note: We also make the front wheels as well - see them here. We also make the spindle mount tow hook shown in the photo.

Disk brake pad selections.jpg (16291 bytes)
The two pads on the left are rear caliper pads the others are all front caliper pads.

The B5010 and B5020 disk brake pad is dimensionally the same as B3325 and the B3326 except for the center retaining hole. Both are 4" across the face. The Strange B5010 / B5020 pad has a 3/8" hole for the spacer to pass through while the B3325/B3326 pad has a 3/16" hole for a small bolt or "cotter pin" or "split pin" to hold them in the caliper.  The steel backing behind the pad material where the center retaining hole is located can be drilled out on the B3325/B3326 pad to 3/8" so it will fit in a Strange caliper. The B5010 and the B3325 are both "soft" pads and work very well on the street. The B5020 and the B3326 are both metallic pads and work better when hot. This is primarily a race application but can be used on the street but will not work well when cold or at slow speeds.

The B5020 and the B5020 fit a Strange caliper.

The B3325 and the B3326 will fit a Wilwood, JFZ, Mark Williams, Aerospace or Romac caliper.

The 31 Chapter 200 page Fuel Injection book is here for  more info on what has been called "the best fuel injection book on this planet". Now only $99.95AUD If you only learn one thing it is worth it
The FI book has been this price for ten years now, my publishing costs continue to rise and soon I will have to raise the price.
Currently all orders are processed at the old price of $99.95 - don't miss out - order now.

I must point out that my printing house (and all the rest of them as well) have raised their prices so when this last printed batch of books are gone... the price goes up. Order now and save.
Can I point out it is less than 50 cents a page!!!


We ship the FI book inside Australia COD Australia Post. When the order arrives at your post office you pay the postman and he sends the money to us. Outside Australia we require a valid credit card to make the charges to.
