New, big-bore rear-wheel cylinders from Maximum Motorsports improve braking in drum-brake 1979-1993 Mustangs by shifting brake bias towards the rear of drag cars running slicks, front skinnies, nine-inch rear drums, and factory front discs.
These larger-bore cylinders cleverly capitalize on the stopping potential of a drag car’s large, sticky rear tires. Shifting brake bias rearward shortens stopping distance and reduces the risk of locking up skinny frontrunners, thereby freeing a driver to fully focus on “racing the finish line.” Coupled with stock Fox front brakes (except SVO) or 1999-2004 GT or V6 front discs, rear bias increases by 17 percent. Improvement varies with each combination of front brakes and tire size. (A recommendation table is provided at MaximumMotorsports.com.) Perhaps no other $27.97 aftermarket item delivers so much improvement in performance and safety.
Newly manufactured (not rebuilt), big-bore wheel cylinders are the latest additions to Mustang braking systems engineered specifically for drag racing by Maximum Motorsports. Master cylinders and hard-line sets, manual-brake-conversion kits, adjustable proportioning valves, and premium brake fluid are described and illustrated at MaximumMotorsports.com, or call (866) 378-2854.
