Carbon brakes were initially developed by Strange Engineering in the 80’s to eliminate brake fade and allow for safe braking under immense loads by Top Fuel and funny car teams. Carbon greatly reduces rotating weight when compared to steel and cast iron brake kits. Carbon is unique material that can withstand “white” hot temperatures during braking. Carbon rotors are virtually immune to thermal shock which can caused steel and cast iron rotor to warp, crack, and potentially fail. Strange has developed a carbon material that has exceptional static and non-static characteristics while still yielding exceptional life. These proven spindle mount front carbon kits feature a caliper that employs a unique slider assembly that prevent caliper from binding or sticking. The square carbon pads have a generous surface area allowing for optimum braking.
