Strange Brakes

Strange Engineering is proud to introduce the next step in braking technology. Designed specifically for drag racing, the Strange two-piece rotors utilize a unique floating rotor design that allows for axial and radial growth as temperatures increase. According to Strange, its lug design reduces warping and coning tendencies of the rotor. In addition, the spiral-lock retention eliminates the possibility of loose bolts and the need for safety wire as well as reducing rotating weight. Its rotors can replace existing Strange rotors or be upgraded into any of its front or rear brake kit assemblies.
