      Living in Oregon it’s tough to get to track during Covid. We’ve been on some sort of lockdown since March. No spectators allowed at drag strip to watch. We’re on level 1 lockdown now they don’t even want you to have 6 people at your house for thanksgiving.

        Working on installing the brakes. This is a Baer kit with 13 inch rotors. I had Strange Engineering install the Torino ends on the 9 inch with the correct 2.50 inch standoff so these brakes would fit. Only problem is that Strange installed 3 inch studs rather than the 2 inch studs that I ordered so now the axles need to come out to replace the wheel studs. Not a big deal, just cost me a couple of days.

          Screw on old lug nuts, at your chosen length and abrasive wheel those studs off. BS on taking that thing apart, unless trust is an issue.

          Got the studs changed over to the correct length and then installed the full brake kit. I weighed the assembly complete with brakes and came up with 212 lbs. That is dry so once it goes in the car it will be about 220 lbs with a gallon of gear oil. I'll weigh the S60 when I pull it so I'll know the difference.

                Yeah, I'm not in a hurry so no reason to butcher stuff. Summit delivers to me next day if the parts are in stock so not a big deal to wait a day for parts.
