The Strange Engineering Pro Race Rear Carbon Brake Kit was developed to satisfy one of the most demanding and competitive racers in NHRA history, Warren Johnson. After not being satisfied with other braking systems in the industry, WJ approached Strange Engineering to develop a carbon brake system to meet his stringent standards. After intensive field testing and WJ's valued input, the result was a carbon system that surpassed his expectations. Strange Pro Race Carbon Brake Kits have evolved beyond its competition and are widely used by past, present and future World Champions.
The 4 Piston Ultra Caliper incorporates a unique two piece piston design developed by Wilwood Engineering for Formula One cars. Each piston is comprised of two separate pieces, with a special ceramic insert encapsulated by the piston halves. The ceramic piston design eliminates heat shields, which in extreme conditions proved to warp and cause brake drag if not periodically replaced. Besides eliminating the heat shields, the ceramic inserts prevented the boiling of brake fluid when the rotors exceeded red hot and became white hot. The Ultra Caliper incorporates a bore size of 1.750" for optimal feel and superior braking.
The 11" (outside diameter) carbon rotors are .50" smaller than other kits on the market. The smaller rotor generates more heat than the 11.50", providing peerless braking for Pro and Sportsman racers. The 11" carbon disk also provides the lightest rear disc weight on the market at a mere 1.68 lbs. Each brake pad has been slotted to allow carbon dust to escape, improving rotor and pad longevity.
The entire assembled rear carbon brake kit (pair) weighs only 14.95 lbs. Each disc weighs a meager 1.68 lbs. and when mounted on the rotor mount, still only weighs 3.10 lbs. Each carbon pad only weighs .20 pounds.
Strange Pro Race Rear Carbon Kits include the following:
Ultra Calipers, Billet Aluminum Caliper Mounts, Mounting Hardware, 11" Carbon Rotors and Slotted Carbon Brake Pads.
WARNING: Motor vehicles contain fuel, oils and fluids, battery posts, terminals and related accessories which contain lead and lead compounds and other chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects and other reproductive harm. These chemicals are found in vehicles, vehicle parts and accessories, both new and as replacements. When being serviced, these vehicles generate used oil, waste fluids, grease, fumes and particulates, all known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, and reproductive harm.
WARNING: Some dust created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drilling, and other construction activities contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are: lead from lead-based paints, crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and arsenic and chromium from chemically treated lumber. Your risk from exposure to these chemicals varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure, work in a well-ventilated area and with approved safety equipment, such as dust masks that are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles.
WARNING: The wires of these products contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. Wash hands after handling.
