I am not sure of the best place for this topic, so correct me please if you know where it should go. Don't worry this isn't yet another thread about whether they can fit on a bug.
I have a standard Oval and I'm planning to turn it into a historic race car style oldspeed bug with a hot 1776 motor. My intention is to take it to track days in the future and maybe gentleman racing if budget allows for it.
Forget price and I know the WILL fit all I want to know is are they any good?
I see many hot motor bugs many over 2 litres with 356 brakes, can these guys stop? I currently have cable brakes and drive the car as fast as possible, everyone says they're cable brakes are rubbish but you'd be surprised what you can get out of period equipment when they are set up right and you plan ahead!
All examples and recommendations welcome. I want the car to look as period as possibe so 356 drums are perfect, I just don't want to regret not buying discs based on performance.
Thanks for the mention of the racing bug via justkampers. I've actually met that gent and chatted to him about it. He seems to be doing very well indeed, lot's of hard work. He is running discs on that bug with radars I believe.
