Brakes work but car won’t stop
I just upgraded my front brakes to Wilwood 4 piston 12.19” discs. There are no leaks, they were bled, the mc is full, rotors were cleaned with brake cleaner. On jack stands the brakes worked. I just tried to take the car for a test spin and can’t stop the car. The e- coating on the rotors is scratched up so it is engaging at some point.
Next issue. Haven’t driven the car in a year. When I fired her up, the engine is racing at around 2500 rpm. When I go into gear, the car accelerates to around 25mph without hitting the gas. Not sure if this is because the choke hasn’t opened yet. So this isn’t helping the brake situation... but I would think the brakes should still overcome this. So maybe I have two problems.
Right now I’m relying on the steep slope on the driveway and slamming the tranny into park to stop the car (not good). Almost hit a tree, the house, etc.
