'High-Performance Brake Systems: Design, Selection and Installation' gives you the knowledge to upgrade your brakes the right way the first time. Author James Walker, Jr. doesn't just tell you how to do it, he uses over 330 photographs and plain English to help you understand how and why your brake system works, what each of the components does, and how to upgrade your brakes for improved performance.

There are chapters showing you how to choose and install the most effective rotors, calipers, pads and tyres for your sports car, muscle car, race car and hot rod. You will even find special sidebars detailing how each upgrade can affect your ABS!
