Brake Upgrades

Optimal brake performance in a muscle car is not an option, it’s a must!

Optimal brake performance is critical in any car but none more so than in muscle cars. With all that extra power and torque, your muscle car needs the most effective and reliable braking system possible to keep you in control of your machine and keep you, your passengers and other drivers on the road safe and sound.

An effectiveand reliable braking system reduces brake fade for shorter stopping distances, even when driving in high demand situations. In addition to the obvious safety concerns, brake performance in muscle cars can also affect your overall driving experience. If brake hoses lose their strength and wall rigidity, brake pedal pressure can be affected, particularly under heavy braking situations.

Enhancing the performance and safety of your muscle car braking system

At JMACCH PERFORMANCE, optimal braking safety does not come at the expense of superior race-ready driving performance. We have the experience and dedicated diagnostic equipment needed to assess your muscle car’s braking system and recommend enhancements for optimal safety without sacrificing the superior performance of your machine.

As part of our assessment and service we recommend a brake fluid flush every 2 years to maintain optimum fluid condition. We also recommend replacing old brake hoses to prevent unexpected failures that put you, your passengers, other drivers and your muscle car at risk. Rest assured we will never replace brake hoses without assessing them thoroughly first. If brake hoses do need replacing, we recommend braided brake hoses which help brake pedal feel by minimising flex or ‘give’ in brake hose strength, even under the high pressure situations commonly experienced in muscle car driving.
