BRAKE COMMENTS ONLY

I am building my blazer the way that i want it and right now i have terrible brake fade. I am going for a tuned performance suspension. It does not matter what kind of motor you have but if you can get into a turn and out of a turn quicker than the other vehicle, you are ahead. The proper way to take a turn is to brake before it and drive through it. A blazer is a bulky vehicle and will require a nice setup like this one.

I will post prices or get Ed to when I talk to him. He will offer just the brackets aswell so that you may use junkyard parts, or find your own if you please.

looks like it will be pretty cool...what size wheel are you going to be running because i would guess that you would have to run atleast an 18 to clear those brakes.

YOU MUST HAVE 18 INCH WHEELS TO CLEAR THESE BRAKES
I currently have 18 inch wheels for the winter, but as soon as I install them, I am going to measure out for a set of forged 19s.

I have to take a close look, but it looks like the rear is going to be set in alittle farther. That is ok with me because that just means that i get to run a bigger lip.

You can find fitment templates here to determine spacer/offsets needed to clear the calipers.

I'm putting the exact same brake package on my truck and in my situation it will be U N D E R K I L L so say that twice over. And FYI its not just high horsepower motors that need big brakes to back them up...big wheels need them too :Phil:

Let's say for a minute that it is in fact true; the brakes are overkill, and aren't needed without more power behind his truck.
Tell me what is smarter; to first build the engine, only to find out later that your truck is unsafe and now you need need bigger brakes; or to build with safety in mind and do the brakes first?

Either way, in this situation your argument is just an argument for the sake of arguing. I'll be loking into this kit myself.

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
I like the idea of larger brakes. Most of the vehicles I have owned typically get a "better than stock" upgraded brake system.

Think about this.

You are driving down the road minding your own business coming home from work. You are traveling 50 mph in traffic. Some idiot in the lane next to yours isnt paying attention and at the last second slams on their brakes and cuts over in inches front of you so they can go 2 lanes over to make their turn. Now, instinct says to hit the brakes from hitting them. Now, would you rather have the stock brake system to stop your vehicle from making contact with the other car? Or would you rather have better braking (either in the form of larger rotors/calipers, ss brake lines, better pads, 4 wheel disc brakes, slotted, crossdrilled, slotted/crossdrilled rotors etc)?


Personally, I like this idea. I currently have 4 wheel disc brakes on a 2.2 4cylinder s10 extended cab. 18" chrome wheels etc.

What is the difference between a 120hp, 250 hp, 300 hp, 500hp truck etc etc going from 70-0 mph?

This is very true, but a larger engine doesn't nessecarily need a big brake kit. Especcially since most of these guys just go in a straight line and they have a 1/4 mile to slow down. I am going for a different approach. The farther you can stay on the gas before having to brake for a turn will dramaticly affect the time around a course.

My next mod is going to bea either a 3link or a 6-speed transmission, and then i am going to start on the motor build or swap.

are you doing a bolt in blazer notch? Or a full 8" blazer step notch?

Let me know how it everything works out of for you. Is there a direct bolt in kit available yet? I already have disc on the rear. And of course would love to upgrade to the setup you currently have.

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
I dont think there is such a thing as 'overkill'. This is an extemely badass setup and I complement you for shelling out the dough for it, because I know it didnt come cheap. Some of you saying that for an s-10 this is a stupid idea, are retarded. Doing anything to an s-10 could be considered stupid. Engine mods, 17,18,20,22" wheels, custom paint jobs, bags...etc. But that is besides the point. You all do things to your trucks, because you WANT to. You do it because you think its COOL. That is all that really matters. Its what you like. So dont give this guy a bunch of shit because he went for the jugular on his brake setup. Thats what he wanted and what he felt he needed for his particular application. It is no different that spending $3,000 on a set of Intros for a truck that probably isnt even worth that much to the average Joe Blow. So STFU.

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
Yeah, those brakes are definitely overkill. Hell they are overkill for the corvette that they came off of. I think everyone should still be rolling around on 4whl drums, but that's just me.















Yeah right! Dude's nuckin futs. There is NO SUCH THING as overkill when it comes to brakes. Those brakes are AWSOME!! If I had the cash I would be going with that setup instead of the 13" Vette/ 12" LS1 set up I have now. I am also curious as to how much that kit costs.

There is a link to a fitment template in post 14 to make sure you get all of the clearances correct. You have to scroll down to the c6 z06, but it sticks out 1.69 inches

and besides you can't go overkill on a safety item i think, if you have to stop you have to stop.... some just like to be able to do it quicker, and its better to do it right and not have that oh sh** i shoulda upgraded those moments

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
this may seem like a stupid question and those brakes are very expensive and pretty but do you have a master cylinder that will push enough fluid for them to be effective?

redxtruck 04-10-2007 04:43 PM

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
yeah the stock one should be fine, if not then i will get one. The original quote that i got was only 2650 front and rear. so i am kinda pissed about that, but i have them now.

MINTSICK 04-10-2007 04:47 PM

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!

redxtruck 04-10-2007 04:58 PM

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
i could have gone with something different, but i didn't want to get something and it not be enough, so i went with a good start. i can still upgrade if i need to.

If you compare the price to the baer kits you get twice the brake for the same price. and this has abs.

besides it is very different.

yes but they just bolt on. the only thing you have to do is grind like a 1/4inch out of the spindle for the bolt to go through

Im not too familiar with Intro's, or where they place the valve stems, but my Bonspeeds have the hidden stem, and I had to go with a flush mount valve stem.

Rear brackets are only $85 with all bolts and hardware
Sounds like your next upgrade jim

I also talked to Ed and he said that the front is more than the price that i stated. so that means the rears are cheaper. Not sure how much yet though he will get back to me

You have s10 drop spindles. they will stick the front out half an inch, but this kit is on blazer drop spinldes. He doesn't have brackets that work for the s10 spindles, but the blazer spindles should work on the s10

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
That's a nice set-up.

If they are still off the truck, could you weigh them? On the fronts weigh the spindle, hub, caliper, and rotor as a unit. On the rears do the bracket, caliper, and rotor as a unit. I'm just curious about these types of things.

redxtruck 04-11-2007 06:02 PM

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
the fronts are heavy. i have them all boxed up right now until i get everything, but i will weight them when i take them back out. i am actually curious myself.

Update:
I sent one of the rear rotors back to Ed to get zinc washed again. It was not completly done to match the other.

ZZ4Blazer 04-11-2007 06:44 PM

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
I know its not the same, since your still using the s-10 spindle, but I think my spindle/brake combo weighed 50 lbs. It was around there. I know it was a pound or 2 lighter than my 12" b-body spindle set up.

Is that possible??

OK, the M3 might be an improvment. We have a 330Ci that will run circles around my Blazer right out of the box.

are you thinking of doing the swap too now?:)

When he said he was selling them I was, so that I could use the ATS spindle that ZZ4Blazer has. After looking at the dimensions of the front calipers though, they won't clear my wheels. I'd need to run a 1/2" spacer, and have another 1/2" of backspacing added to the wheels. Then I run into the problem of having a very narrow lip on the outside of the wheel. I like narrow lips, but not that narrow.

Doesn't seem worth it to change the sweet setup you have now.

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
i have a friend that put c5 z06 calipers with aftermarket c5 z06 rotors on a 3rd gen camaro. we turned the old rotors with the bearings down on a brake lathe to just turn them into hubs with lug studs. the car already had long studs installed. all we had to do was fabricate some brackets and tap some holes... and it wound up working out nicely http://i146.photobucket.com/albums/r...y/DSC00063.jpg

fishindabay 04-15-2007 11:59 AM

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
i neglected to mention that we had to run a 1/4 inch spacer between the wheel and rotor to clear the caliper on those wheels.

i'd love to do something like this to my s10... but i don't think i need that much stopping power with a 4cyl. this camaro used to drive to the track run 10's on slicks, and drive back home... 100 miles each way. now it has a tuned down 383 in it... sick car

redxtruck 04-15-2007 12:33 PM

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
yeah you can do that on an s10 but then the front will be another half inch out due to the leftover caliper. this is how ed does the s10 spindle setups for other brake kits.

On the front I have SSBC 43mm/4 piston calipers with a 13" rotor.

On the back are the SSBC 45mm/single piston aluminum calipers with a 10.5" rotor. I believe they are late 80's/early 90's Thunderbird calipers.

Red X...are your brakes already mounted on the 2102 Belltech spindles? And you also have all the eBrake stuff for the rear, right? How much are you looking to get for it all? Exactly what you paid/quoted earlier in the thread?

Brian, from what I've heard those brakes will BARELY fit in 18" wheels, so most likely your valve stems would hit :(

And about your track widening question, if you modify '82-04 S10 TRUCK spindles (stock or drop) to work with the brakes it will add 1/2" width to each side of the front track. If you use either stock '98up Blazer spindles or '98up Blazer drop spindles (Belltech #2102) it will not widen out the front track at all.

Is the backside of your timeless 5's that flat? Usually that style of wheel's got a decent mounting flange.

he has custom wheels that are pretty much flat to clear his current brake setup

ZZ4Blazer 04-15-2007 07:35 PM

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
From what I thought, they made the spokes of the wheels flatter, instead of curving in towards the hoop, like typical wheels. Therefore, giving him more clearance for a large caliper.

But maybe I miss understood??

My rotors look to have more of a "hat" on them as compared to the ZO6's. I looked at the dimensions on mine, and I have 1.1875" from the wheel mounting surface to the face of the caliper. When they made the wheels they left me about 1/4" free room.

Based on the spec sheet form KORE, the ZO6's dimension is 1.69". I'm thinking that the distance from the rotor face to the front of the caliper is pretty similar, it's just that the taller hat is causing the .5" difference.

You can see it in these pictures...

Well you said $3350 earlier in the thread but you also said that Ed is charging more than you actually paid b/c of the time/labor involved etc. So is that $3350 what Ed now charges or what you paid?

Alright, I scored a set of Belltech 2" drop blazer spindles, #2102,

for the C5 Z06 brakes,

do I need Corvette hubs, or will the blazer hubs work?

hivoltagedriver 05-05-2007 07:30 PM

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
The blazer hubs will work fine. You will just need the adapter brackets to bolt the Vette brakes to your spindles.

firedog 06-07-2007 07:25 PM

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
I got the C5 set up on my Blazer X with some of Ed's brackets and I did a LS1 Camaro rear set up it is Essentially the same as a C5 Vette/ZO6 (all had the same brakes the ZO6 was just red) I personally feel that I have too much front bias and am in the process of fixing it with a C5 master cylinder. I'm having trouble finding some fittings to get it to work. I think the C5 set up is plenty but going up to the Z51 set up should not be too hard 13.4" front only an abutment bracket change the rear would need some brackets made by Ed for the rear (I think)

With the exception of the C6 ZO6 the calipers are the same as the C5's the lettering is different thats it so you can get the C5 stuff cheaper. I did my whole swap for about a grand. I'm needing a brake job I may go bigger for the hell of it I got 18's allready, I don't need it though what I got is "PLENTY" trust me.

What size are the stock 98+ blazer discs?
I think the stock truck discs are 10.5 inch.

I believe that 12 inch rotors can be fit under them with the right caliper and bracket combo.
I remember the old B body using 12 inch rotors with 15 inch wheels.
I test fit my 15x7 snowflake T/A wheels on my rear disc 97 Firebird and they cleared.
Firebird used 11.2 rotors.

The rear rotors may be different in diameter, but they have much less surface contact. The pads are about half the size and only pressed by single piston calipers.

You're the biggest ignorant douche I've ever came across on this forum! Anyone with any knowledge about cars and racing know that being able to come to a stop is 1000 times more important then being the fastest car out there. So brake and suspension upgrades are the most important thing to do to a vehicle. Once you get that taken care of, then you can start working on the engine. :rolleyes:

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
the u- bolts are for my air tanks. the price on this kit was like 3350, but i don't know if he will still make them. i do not have any pictures of them with the wheels on, but i should by the weekend. i am having a couple of shockwave problems

what problem with the shockwaves?

redxtruck 07-27-2007 09:38 PM

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
the air fitting is hitting the top of the spring pockets. can you find me some pictures of what i need to cut? i can only find regular bag stuff, or people just saying that shockwaves suck.

you and me both man. i bought some 20s for it but they don't fit, soooo i think i am just gonna get 19s. i like how much the brakes fill the 18s, but i like how the 20s fill the wheel wells.

19" tires are really expensive btw. They probably cost close to a 20" tire. It's just something to think about if you hadn't been already.

my front calipers come out so far. i need like an extra inch of clearance, so spacers won't even work because the wheels will be into the fenders.

Yeah i know. I actually think that the ones that i want are more expensive for 19 than 20, but it costs money to do what you want.

Cam? me? Nope, that hasn't happened yet. Only thing I've done lately is the 3.42-to-4.10 swap. I'll be rebuilding the motor soon, (that's why I keep lurking in the comp 270 threads), but i'm going on about my sixth month of that claim...:D

well finally on the road... only one pic for now, from a meet, but i will get more tomorrow.
the brakes have completely eliminated any brake fade that i have previously had and the pedal control is unbeleivable.
the brakes cannot stop me any quicker currently because the tires do not grip good enough.

Welcome to the club. Im looking at EFI set ups now too, my carb cant keep up even close to my braking capabilities, nor the cornering.

What tires are you running? Size too? Ive been doing lots of measuring lately, and now looking for another cheap place to get bonspeeds, and getting a 9" wheel and a 275/35 tire for the fronts. Hopefully I can upgrade over the winter on the front 2 wheels and tires.

i only have 7 inch wide wheels because i bought them for winter. i have the bfg gforce kdw2

i still need to order a set of wheels.

redxtruck 10-22-2007 10:17 PM

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
they are 18" Alt wheels with bmw offset and bolt pattern. i did that so that they are cheap and the spacers give them enough clearance for the brakes

For you guys that are wondering...

He used the 2102 spindle with a custom bracket made by Ed Miller. Apparently Ed has fallen into a black hole, so don't ask about contacting him. Ed sourced all the C6 parts for redxtruck and sold him the "package" - brackets plus brake parts.

The install was simple. Unbolt old crap. Bolt in new crap. As you can see in his avatar, the setup is complete BEFORE you pull your tire off.


redx, correct me if I'm wrong (and also, I apologize if I'm stepping on toes).


There are several ways of doing this setup (and similar C5 setups). You could use either the old S10 style setups or the new blazer style "divorced-rotor." You can source all the C5/C6 parts or let someone else do it (Ed, in this case). Then all you need is the bracket from Ed (or others, I believe one of the guys posting in this thread is working on brackets too - but I'll let him speak for himself if he wants to advertise). Bolt it all together and you've got a badass brake setup.


PS - I've got a stock set of 98+ Blazer spindles/brakes for sale if anyone is interested.

HectorM52 10-26-2007 06:22 PM

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
Oh, and as I said on SSF- the brakes look freakin' sweet!!!!

<----JEALOUS!!!

redxtruck 10-26-2007 07:29 PM

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
you are correct about everything except for being able to use the regular s10 spindles or s10 drop spindles. i beleive that someone asked ed about a kit for them and he said that there was not enough clearance.

also i had to add spacers between the rear axle and rotor to prevent the rotor from hitting the caliper. i also had to purchase longer SS brake lines for the rear because the ones he gave me were too short.

About contacting Ed i still have to call him and let him know how everything worked out. i will ask him if he is still willing to put these kits together.

My neighbor and I were talking a few weeks ago about the ZO6 brakes. He pointed out that their aren't right and left specific rotors. The vanes on the driver side are swept backwards. I wonder if any other GM vehicles use those rotors. I don't see why they wouldn't have made two different rotors for a limited production vehicle like the ZO6.

I thought maybe the caddy xlr-v would have something like it but from what I pulled up, nope judt the C6 ZO6 uses them. pads arent cheap for them either..

Dont know if you meant eh vettes or caddy, but if I remember right, even from gmpartsdirect.com, the vette pads were $250.

I got a set of Hawks from tirerack.com for $136.

Yes, he does. But so does Bad94. And you can get in touch with Bad94...

I think Ed was charging between $115 & $150. Can't remember. I'm sure Bad94 would have similar pricing. Try PM'ing him too.

It does not matter what kind of motor you have but if you can get into a turn and out of a turn quicker than the other vehicle, you are ahead. The proper way to take a turn is to brake before it and drive through it. A blazer is a bulky vehicle and will require a nice setup like this one.

a bit overkill IMO

good enough to activate the abs. just like stock. i will not be able to notice any distance change until i get tires, but even then i will not have any way of comparing to stock. the brake fade has completely been eliminated though, which is what i was going for. and the pedal control is amazing.

overall i am very happy with the turnout.

Thanks for the help.


No those bracket wont work.


What spindles do you have?

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
i was tryin to figure out if i had to change the spindles on the s10 to blazer spindles in order to run the vette rotors along with that bracket and the vette caliper.. that was it.. how are you doin?

HectorM52 01-08-2008 09:16 PM

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
The answer is NO, you don't need to change out spindles.

Shoot a PM to Bad94 if you're looking for some brackets that will work with C5 brakes and stock and/or drop S10 spindles.

As for the C5 setups, go search for some Corvette forums and cruise ebay. They pop up for cheap all the time. Just gotta keep an eye out and have some cash when the opportunity presents itself.

tazzmitch 01-08-2008 09:21 PM

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
so the whole vetter conversion is just a bracket and vette rotors and caliper? wow, alright thanks.. i sent him a PM already, i'm just waiting on word.

redxtruck 01-08-2008 09:52 PM

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
it depends on what vette setup you want. i am pretty sure that bad94 doesn't make brackets for the c6 z06 brakes.


also when you do decide on which ones you want you will either have to buy blazer spindles or get a turned/milled s10 hub for the rotors to slide over.

for the c6 z06, yes, you will need to run 18s. you will also have to get a custom offset wheel or use spacers

I just picked up a set of these brakes,the beltech spindles,and some odds and ends. My question is what you paid for your control arms? Any problems with the bushings walking on them? What are you running for sway bars.
I am currently changing my rear suspension to a triangulated 4 link and almost done installing my LS1. So I am looking to upgrade the control arms and sway bars so I can punish my truck at a road course and want it to handle better than most cars. So any recomendations for these parts would be great. I like your new wheels,what did they set you back,and how much do they weigh?

DISCLAIMER: I'm sorry if I insult anyone on this board, but...

99.9% of the guys on this board have not and will not ever step foot on a road course with their truck for serious competition. And no, I'm not counting parade laps.

Head over to www.pro-touring.com and do some more extensive research there. Thanks to a similarity between S-series trucks and 3rd gen F-bodies / 78-88 G-bodies we have some major upgrading possibilities.

I personally am getting spindles by ATS (check out www.t56kit.com or www.scandc.com ). The C5 & C6 brakes will bolt up directly to these spindles. But nothing else, you can't go back to S10 setups or LS1 setups.

There are a TON of UCA's out there. There are few LCA's out there and even less that have some sort of benefit to handling. But they're out there.

Personally, I'd say to get rid of the Belltech spindles. Apparently, there's a chance THIS will happen with the right (wrong) combination of parts/wheels/etc...

that can happen with a bad combination of parts on stock spindles... thats why getting the width/backspacing of the wheel right is key.

Its His ride and he wants something different.

The reason why it's overkill is because that brake set-up was designed to stop a ZO6 that will regularly achieve speeds of 150mph+. Because of this the rotors have a large amount of mass to them(diameter and mainly thickness). It's needed at those braking speeds. The downside to this is that it's a lot of extra unsprung weight that will hurt handling if the vehicle doesn't see those high speeds.

I don't want someone to think that a set-up like this is needed if they are planning on doing some racing in a fairly stock vehicle. In fact you could probably be quicker around the track with a set of modified stock brakes, because they are fairly lightweight.

But you're right, it is his vehicle to do with as he pleases. It's definetly a nice set-up. I'd like to have a set.

EXACTLY.

I know that a lot of "us" are also on a budget, so a set of custom wheels with the right backspacing is out of the question. Especially if you've just dropped 500 or a 1000 bucks on the brake setup...

Thanks for the information,it's alot of reading for me to do. The spindles on my first glance only appear to be a 1" drop,I am looking to keep the 2" drop I have,but I will look into them further. You wouldn't happen to know what they are worth would you?

HectorM52 01-13-2008 09:35 PM

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
I'm not an expert by any means on ALL S10 parts, but I'm pretty sure there are no 1" drop spindles (mass produced). Someone prove it if I'm wrong, I'd love to know.

If you're asking the worth of your own spindles, I'm not sure, it's been a while since I sold my set. Maybe $100 or so?

If you're asking the worth of the ATS spindles, something around $600 or so. Then of course the cost of the brakes (as you can't use S10 brakes).

Just search "s10" over at the PT forum and there's a ton of info on there.

I bought some Air Ride Technologies strong arms from a member, They can be used with Qa1 coilovers. I am using my stock zq8 swaybars.

The wheels were 900 and the tires were 1400. of course shipping mounting and balancing is in there also. The wheels themselves weigh 24.75 for the 19x8.5 and 25.25 for the 19x9.5. Im not sure about with the tires, but shipping weight for 2 wheels was 110lbs. I would say about 52 lbs each.

Where do you see ZO6 Vettes getting up to 150 regularly other than a track? Even then they probably have different pads


There are plenty of Mustangs I know of with HUGE upgraded brakes and they dont get up to 150 even at the track. Not one person has EVER said anything about unsprung weight and hurting handling.

BudRacing 01-15-2008 10:18 AM

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
The Vettes are designed to do 150 comfortably. He wasn't saying all vettes do 150 on a regular basis.

I am doing this to my truck to make it suit my driving style and be completely different than anything you see. It may be overkill for performance, but it is a blazer we are talking about. What part of blazer screams track performance? But it isn't overkill, the brakes are the perfect size behind my wheels.

From my limited research, SUV's aren't allowed to run competitively in any racing series.

Again, from my limited research, Road Atlanta seems to follow SCCA's rules in allowing vehicles on the track for "all-out" runs. So you'd be out of luck in a Blazer. The S10 Xtreme's are listed as acceptable vehicles. One of the only "truck" type vehicles.

greencactus3 01-16-2008 02:47 PM

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
i read up on the SCCA rules, and they said it really depends on the event runners.
my truck's wheelbase is "just" at the limit for the track requirements to allow, so xcab truck's wheelbase may be 'too long' for the designed course.

ive never done autoX, but the roadcourse ive gone to allowed me on. but then again, whether they will let a stock blazer is a whole different question.

im assuming as long as your truck seems like it is safe, and has been modified to be more suitable for the track, (and you dont look like you came from the sec of state on your bday that morning) most event holders would allow you to, maybe with a word of advice to take it easy for the first few laps/runs.

I'd say there's a difference betwen running on a track vs. running Auto X.

On the track you could potentially approach speeds of 100+ mph. On the autoX you probably approch speeds of 60+ at MOST and you're not gonna turn in the middle of that.

Either way, I would think that a track would make an exception for a well-built truck/suv but who's to say what would constitute "well-built?"


All I know is that the C6 brakes are SEXY whether or not they are overkill.

What vehicle is that? Maybe its just the pictures, but certainly isnt a s-series. I know the pic is just for reference, but just curious. I know that has happed to guys before with smaller diameter wheels. I dont know if you've got your ATS spindles on yet, but they raise the rods up some, and WAY in. You'll have tons of clearance with them. Youd run into the frame with your wheels before you'll hit them.

HectorM52 02-13-2008 10:45 PM

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
You know, I'm not sure. That picture was part of the propaganda that pushed me to get the ATS spindles...

I just knew that my old salad shooter (stock '95 Z28) wheels were VERY close to the tie-rod ends and that I really didn't want that same thing to happen if I lowered my truck with the bigger brake package.

Oh, and just TODAY my ATS spindles arrived and I was able to mock them up VERY briefly (on one side) but nothing else. Gotta get some sleep.


So, anyway, the above was just a warning to people out there that this sort of thing can happen and that research must be done before just throwing a bunch of parts together.

Brake lines for $100.

Modified S10 hubs from Bad94 - $150???? PM him for costs.
Modified S10 spindles from Bad94 - $200???? PM him for costs.

What else do you need.... hmm...

i payed 3500, front and rear, but i had all new parts including blazer hubs and belltech spindles.

Sorry - I didn't clarify. I was just speaking about the front. I would double those numbers if talking about new and/or GM parts.

Or you could get them from gmpartsdirect.com(and better pads through tire rack.com), and save yourself some money.

You must be clear across the country and killing you on shipping then.

I've about $900 into my front brakes. And BTW, pads from tirerack.com are a lot cheaper(and probably better compound as well.)

Sorry about going a tad off-topic, but I searched and really couldnt find anything so here it goes.

Are the LS1 front calipers the same size as Z06 calipers? If not, has anyone actually done just the LS1 front brake swap? All I got were corvette setups.

Hmm, lol. That kind of makes me happy and at the same time I'm not sure if it's a happy feeling or a "damnit, now what am I going to try" feeling.

I'll simply put it so I don't get my hopes up, will LS1 front calipers be able to work with a newer style ZQ8 16x8 wheel? I can't find a damn thing on these LS1 setups.

BudRacing 06-05-2008 12:43 AM

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
I want to say yes. They're not much bigger than the blazer brakes, so they should fit pretty well I'd say.

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
Ya know, right now I wanna give you a big kiss. :D:kiss: :haha:

Now, will I have to get a modified hub from the member on here that does them? I would assume so considering the hub was built into the S10 rotors, as the F-body rotors are just rotors.

The calipers on these two setups will interchange with each other so you can "customize" them so to speak. I do know that you can fit a setup with a LS1 rotor and a C5 caliper (stronger of the two) inside a 16" wheel.

Now for the big one..The 13" Wilwood setup is seen here:

http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/taram...ler72/my_photos

This setup uses the ZQ8 Blazer/Envoy spindle with the one piece hub, a Wilwood 4 piston caliper, and 13" x 1.1" rotor. This will give you all the stopping power you'll ever need.

E-mail me for more info and questions..thanks!

pretty cool to actually see some people serious about road course track running s-series.


Not sure how it applies: But every 4th of july here the rally car club holds races for its members. Usually it's just cones set around a huge parking lot, but if you're a member they allow pretty much any vehicle type in. Last year we watched a fully loaded Police Tahoe cruiser with a k-9 unit in the back run through the course, kinda proved to me I really shouldn't be worried about ditching one of the police trucks if I had too. other than that they had all sorts of vehicles, from stock 90's imprezas, lotus espirit, to fully rebuilt 69 camaros a chevy nomad and saw a modified caprice wagon.
That's just a large local club, but I've also heard times where they open the tracks to the public for a fee they'll let you run your vehicles on them. Letting them compete in a road rally is a different story, but I'm sure some of these trucks could find a way in.

That's kind of the way I'm building my truck. The exception is, I won't be racing it on a course because I'm a very small guy, and I doubt I can keep up with the turns and pulling the wheel from left to right and vice versa so rapidly. I'm building my truck, so when someone gets in, they feel like it's not a truck, but a nice car. One that when/if they get to drive it, they actually want to keep driving it.

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
In regards to the overkill comment. There is a threshold for most things, that a certain amount is overkill.

Frankly, your ultimate stopping distance is determined by the coefficient of grip your truck has on the road. This depends on the coefficient of friction of both the surface you are on, and the surface of your tires.

Not to give a lesson in physics here, but fundamentally, if on dry pavement, you can stomp the brakes and induce ABS, or induce lockup for those without ABS, then you've exceeded the threshold of grip. Now, rotors and calipers are very simple. The caliper presses on the rotor, causing again a coefficient of grip, as determined by the friction, between the two surfaces.

When the grip of the rotor on the disc, exceedes the grip of the tire on the road, simply put, your wheel locks up, or goes into ABS.

Now, obviously the inertia and force of the truck as it travels forward, greatly effect the coefficients, but thats why brake bias is generally ~70% to the front.

In terms of Blazers, and S10's- they are not Mack trucks, nore are they even close to a full size. They do not require the amount of brake force provided by corvette setups.

It has nothing to do with traffic, if somebody cuts you off- frankly thats your reaction time, and how quickly your foot moves to the brake pedal. If you're a slow ass tool, then C6 brakes wont save you.

Now, conceededly larger setups avoid brake fade, and are more tolerant of temperature, but unless you're driving Laguna Seca in 110 degree weather all day long, you again don't require that capability of fade resistance.

I whole heartedly agree, that Bear and SSBC setups, even changing S10's to the blazer 2piston setup, will improve your stopping distance over stock, given you aren't running the narrow ass 205 stock front tires.

I also conceede that larger diameter rotors produce more rotational inertia, however the primary culprit of that rotational inertia is the 18+inch x 8.5+ inch wheel with the big ass spokes and thick rim edges.

All that said- if you are running an LS truck, or blazer as it may be, or maybe you have some really whacked mid engine twin turbo shitsubishi setup, and your passengers asses get hot from the exhaust manifolds, or maybe you've crammed in a 572 that hasnt sipped pump gas since it was installed- then perhaps, just maybe, you'd warrent a C6 setup for the performance aspect.

Maybe you really do circle track your truck, perhaps you're trying to compete in the truck series.

If the above were the case, I doubt you'd be running such heavy beefy setups. Unless you are very lucky and get to go around Bristol, and can actually break 100mph on the straights without going straight into the wall.

But by in large, most users of the forum, don't drive in a manner that requires such a setup, unless they live in LA... I hear the cops out there have pretty quick cars :).

So- why do it.

A: Because you have the money.
B: Because you weren't an idiot, and got some nice open spoke design wheels.
C: Because you think stock stuff looks, and feels like poo.
D: Because you want to be the first Sonovette.

and perhaps the biggest reason of all:

E: BECAUSE YOU CAN.

Now my personal take- since you all probably think Im jealous,
frankly, I'd love to do this setup, or even the SSBC/Baer setups, because they look damn cool, and I think the people who have done it, kudo's to you, I wish that GM would have made a 2nd gen Syclone style truck, or even that they would drop the piece of shit Colerado/Canyon, bring the S10 back out with a higher performance option, that had beefed up 4-wheel disc.

If people don't do it, and don't want it, the OEM's will never build it, why do you think they have reinvented the muscle cars 5x over, because people want it.

I love seeing S10's, and Blazers with big brakes, big pipes, and cool amenities, don't get me wrong its why I read this forum.

Ultimately, your grip on the road, your reaction time, and your decision making, will determine if you smash up your front end. I highly doubt that if Baer/SSBC brakes don't save you, that C6 setups would.

SLStruckin 06-05-2008 12:37 PM

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
As an add, Im actually surprised the stock master + booster would provide enough volume and pressure to a C6 setup.

better tires are better than better brakes, but both of them compliment each other well. and speaking from experience, the total feel, endurance, and look of these are remarkable. I don't know what the baer/ssbc brakes are capable of, but they are what everyone else has.


01cherryreds10- you might want to talk to bad94 about getting brackets, and if you want it to ride really good, get dbl adjustable shocks. I have the dble adjustable shockwaves, but im sure the coilovers will well also. Now for the rear suspension you will have to talk to cactus, i know he has done alittle bit of research on it.



oh yeah, i will get some new pictures soon

Rear pads per wheel = $441.75 x 2 = 883.50
Total 7809.00 :eek:
Add about 15% for GM retail parts price = $8,980 for parts only. To see if you need rotors they have to disassemble the brake system enough to remove the rotor to weigh it. Each rotor has its own discard weight stamped on it. "NO sir, you don't need rotors at this point, that will 750 dollars labor, thank you very much" .So add in labor and tax and I am pretty sure you are getting out a ten thousand dollar bill to be paid in full. Getting GM wholesale pricing from GM parts departments is pretty easy. Get ya down to around 9 grand or so. So there ya go, for what it is worth.

Yes, those will bolt up any factory C5/C6 brake combo. I have those on my truck and a great investment if your after killer handling IMO. Went up in price though...

Alright cool..does those spindles really drop the front an 1in like it says and they also claim that the spindles don't push the wheel out like Drop Spindles do.

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
Do you also have the lower control arms? I was wondering if they also dropped the front? (the ones the hold the stock springs.)The reason ask is because stock lower arms have the hump in them and these mount below the arm so it just seems by looking at them they would also lower.

Did redxtruck ever say what size wheel he was using and with backspacing-offset?

I'm pretty sure he did.

You can search this thread - look up at the top of the page under the "page numbers" of the thread. It says "search this thread" then just enter his username. Show results by "post" not "thread."

I couldn't find a post with any backspacing/offset spec on redxtruck but some 20" Eagle Alloy 025s should easily clear.

Just a newbie here but I found the Complete C6 Z06 Frt and Rear brake set up for $1925 @ the following: http://www.corvettegarage.com/produc...e-package.html This is just the calipers and rotors. You will have to buy the 2102 drop spindles and brackets and ss lines seperately.:rotf:

Also, found C6 Z06 frontsetup w/LS-1 Rears includes lines and pads, and hardware(brackets incl.) for $2325 Add $140 for custom hubs if needed @ http://www.flynbye.com/index.html. This is also the site for the ED guy mentioned in earlier post if I am not mistaken. So every body stay cool and low!!:cool:

Bimbob-O

Brackets @ the second site are $75 or $80 by themselves.

If you guys have the cash to lay down for just this setup you should be driving something other than an S-Series and this is coming from someone who put a lot of money into his front brakes.

$2k and up for JUST BRAKES??? Nuts. Cool looking, but nuts.

Wouldn't a less expensive and better route be to buy the ATS spindles and buy a used or reman set of corvette calipers and rotors?

Considering the ATS spindles around about $1k, I would imagine you can find the front brake assembly and some rear discs for less than $1300.

This is the most logical setup IMO. without lighter spindles you're increasing the unsprung to sprung weight ratio, which will make the car ride more harshly, and thus grip less over uneven surfaces. minimal unsprung weight is a key to a good ride and good traction.

So there are no kits that are made to bolt up to a 1998-2004 S-10 Spindle?

Talk to kore3.
they now carry brackets for the blazer spindles but they are not listed on their site.
they may have something for the s-10 one too

Have a quick question on this, does it matter if autopart store calipers are used?

syclone2673 01-28-2013 01:16 PM

Re: S10 Blazer Xtreme C6 Z06 Corvette Brakes!!
 
Would love to put a "big brake kit" like this on the ty, just dont want to have to buy new wheels & not crazy about the "corvette" logo on the calipers. I will probably just do a ls1 kit so I can keep the 17's and keep the cost down. Very nice though, cant wait to see it on your blazer.
