Chris Sneed makes a nice one too. He fabricated and installed mine.

So I had the car out and did a 90 mile round trip to a friends and back. I bled the brakes twice in the past two days and on this run I could not tell any difference from the single pistons relative to peddle travel. Ready for a mountain run.

Although I have not done any mountain runs, I have done some 60 to 0 type brake instances. No issues, things are still tight.

Did some mountain runs yesterday. No wobbles or vibrations under some hard and constant braking. First time the EBC Reds saw some good heat. My eyes and ears are nowhere as good as they were years ago but my nose is still pretty good and could smell the pads. Different distinct odor from EBS Yellows as the Reds are ceramic.

All in all, a very good big brake option at a good price.

Aaaaah, that smell of a new brake pad being “grilled” on a nice hot rotor. Mix in the smell of racing fuel being fed through a high performance engine and you have the makings of a fun race day at a vintage race car fest...

Nice to hear that this is working out for you.
