AP Racing Radi-CALs bring added confidence to the C8 Corvette06.16.2022
One of our C8 Corvette Clients recently supplied us with feedback about his recently installed AP Racing by Essex Radi-CAL Competition Brake Kit and Ferodo Racing Brake Pads. Just after install he took them out for a solid pummeling at Laguna Seca with Hooked on Driving. Below are his initial comments on the system:
