Why Spend the money on rear Disc to Gain 5% in braking??

The Rear Disc Brake setups are fantastic, Providing about a 7% increase in braking ability. Remember, the Front brakes do 75% of the braking, Some say 80%. With this figure as a base line for Rear Brakes (20-25%) , then to gain a tremendous value is limited.

After all, stopping a moving wheel, is equated to fiction.

The Show aspects (With Big 17", 18", +) require the show "See through wheel" of rear disc braking being more attaractive, Hands Down Rear Disc Brakes.

However, if one deems to have Excellent Rear Brakes, Not concerned about the "see through wheel-Show") Brakes, then the Dollars spent to gain a Near unnoticable, difference in braking of the Disc Brakes, over the PERFECT, All New, rear drum brakes, is hard to understand?

Figure spending $700.00, over around $155.00 (All new Rear Drums, Hardware, Shoes, etc) , to gain 7%, and you MIGHT NOT be able to tell difference??

Wilwood are great if its a race car on a street car they are way over kill.I would get disc brakes off a 70-73 mustang or cougar and keep the rear drums.A upgrade would be the cobra brakes but they take 17 inch rims to clear.
