“The Wilwood cutting brakes system was one of the most beneficial in this tight course racing. “Wilwood helped me design a cutting brake system that is independent of the standard brake system. Modeled after drifting cars, I have a standard 6 piston caliper setup for the normal brake system and a 4 piston caliper setup for the cutting brakes. This system allows me to have many options including having a backup braking system if anything were to happen,” explained Carner.
