High Caliper Braking - Corvette Standard 4-Wheel Disc Brakes 650275

The four-wheel brake system with separate parking brake was made available as standard equipment on the Chevrolet Corvette. This new system developed by Chevrolet and Delco Moraine meets specific sports car requirements such as increasing total braking effectiveness, giving more stopping power, and improving vehicle control through increased braking feel.
The disc brake gives virtual fade free performance which is achieved through use of a ventilated disc which dissipates heat rapidly and keeps brake linings within their working temperature range.
Intensive proving ground and road tests, as discussed in this paper, prove the overall performance of the disc brake system.
