StopTech Brakes for HOONIGAN Land Speed Camaro


CARSON, Calif. – StopTech, the high-performance arm of Centric Parts, is providing the stopping power for  the HOONIGAN Land Speed Camaro being built to challenge the 200 miles per hour mark later this year.

HOONIGAN is documenting the creation of the Camaro on its HOONIGAN Project Cars” YouTube channel during the weekly Busted Knuckle Garage segments.

The segment featuring the brakes includes both a thorough examination of the StopTech kit, as well as a look at the company’s research and development facility.

StopTech’s choice of components for the Camaro are six-piston STR60 Trophy front calipers grabbing 15-inch two-piece rotors. In the rear, a four-piston Trophy caliper married to a 13-inch rotor completes the package.

HOONIGAN is stuffing an LBZ Duramax Diesel Engine fitted with compound turbochargers into the engine bay of the fifth-generation Camaro to take on the land-speed record.
