The Strange take more weight off because of the alum hub,the aerospace doesnt have this option as they use the steel hub but like u said the aerospace for the $$$ are a great brake.

I have the aerospace on the front also, it wa s a decent kit, little short on instructions but if you know how to put brakes on a car its no big deal.

I saved closer to 38lbs off of mine since it had some super thick aftermarket roors on the front. The rotor weight saving alone was 13lbs per side on my car. Not to mention no more fooling with ground calipers/spacers for welds.

I ran mine on the street. They fade if you are in heavy stop and go traffic. Otherwise they are not bad at all. They also make a street version that only weighs a couple pounds more.

The only time I'll be in traffic is when I'm going to a car show from time to time so the lighter kits are the ones I'm buying.

Thanks guys....

I ordered both fronts and rears from Billingsley Racing.

Thanks Andy, car will be ready next week! Gonna take it out next weekend. Both fronts and rears were around $1200 including the install kit, but I got mine on a group purchase. Call Amber from Billinglsey, she'll hook you up.

I have the billingsley manual brakes and abs delete block, everything works fine together. Just had to buy a couple hunks of 3/16 line and one adapter fitting. Biggest pain was drilling was drilling a new hole in the brake pedal arm, was easy with my car since it has no wiring left but will probably have to pull the pedal assembly out of a stock car to do it..
