PRI 2011: Aerospace Components F-Body Brakes

Among the many high-end race component manufactures available to us during the PRI 2011 Show was Aerospace Components. It was there we found what seemed like one-off, custom pieces for various race cars. Aerospace’s newest parts consisted of their F-Body brake kit for ’93-04 F-Bodies and their transmission cable bracket with bellcrank.

Aerospace’s ‘4th gen Camaro/Firebird brake kits looked more appropriate among museum art rather than on an all-out race car. Either the case, Aerospace has shown it’s done its research on this kit.

What’s included are billet aluminum 4-piston calipers, billet aluminum hubs and even a screw on dust cap. Adding to the overall value, Aerospace is also including Hawk brake pads, mounting brackets and even Grade 8 hardware. You can be rest assured, too, because this kit meets all NHRA/IHRA requirements.

More of the Aerospaces’ display consisted of their new transmission cable bracket system. Of course, Aerospace made sure quality was a priority and constructed the brackets from billet aluminum. It’s also fully adjustable and designed for Morse style cables. To find out more, make sure to hit up Aerospace Components and check out (below) to read about which each kit includes.
