Definitely agree. I never tracked my 65 but I gave it some seriously competitive street use. While cold, the Kelsey Hayes calipers and factory rotors stopped much better than one might expect, but I over heated them several times. Some serious fade.
I did the same thing with my 66 GT when the brakes were stock. A 1/8 mile
offramp was not adequate to stop from whatever asinine speed I was going.
So I upgraded to the B302 Trans Am fronts. Problem solved.

As the drill sergeant said, "I taught you everything you know. I didn't teach you everything I know."
"Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so."
