    Great write up. Thank You. So you would say most things are the same compared to the current version except the new one has significant more power?

    Thanks Walter.

    The car is definitely an American icon. I was just watching Americarna with Ray Evernham and he was sharing a custom Merc of this vintage on his show.

    I didn't get the name of or recognize the owner/builder but he's a rock star.

    That would be a question for Todd or Dylan from RUPES. Whether there is or not they probably can't talk about it.

    I know what you're asking but I also know that wording a question like this is also tricky. I think Todd is better able to answer technical questions about

    more power


    What I can say is my experience is that pad rotation for curved panels and at any point you're applying downward pressure is greatly improved. I think this has more to do with efficiency through engineering.

    So the anti spin feature or shroud still touches the backing plate?

    I have some curvy cars lined up for the January class.





    I should have a 1956 Buick Special too that is in HORRIBLE condition! Just no picture yet.


    Plus a 1965 GTO and some new cars for a class that includes the widest spectrum of cars to learn and train on.
