    Need advice on brake purchase

    I need to upgrade brakes on my 67 Camaro and am ready to pull the trigger on something. I am between Touring Classics C5 type setup and Baer's "Track" system which appear to be very similar to 4th gen Corvette calipers. Both systems have 13" rotors.

    Which will perform better? I plan to do track day events and possibly some high speed autcross.

    Or would I be better off looking at Wilwood' 6 piston setup? Cost is an issue, sort of, but I want to have good performance and don't want to regret not spending a little extra up front. The car is pretty heavy, with an all iron big block.

    HELP!!

    I believe the Baer and the Touring Classics are basicly the same. They both use PBR calipers. I have not heard anything bad on either system.

    I went with the Wilwoods on my 67. A few of the reasons are the two piece rotor(I know you can get them with the Baer) and they are lighter.
