Do many tracks allow the use of rear disc brake swaps in pure stock? The rules for lebanon valley don't mention it at all. What swap would work on a second camaro/firebird or metric?thanks!

Weld-on brackets that accept 74- 78 Camaro
calipers along with rear discs from 88-92
Firebird GTA (firebird or Trans Am are
different). Discs are about $80.00 each and
can be had from most local parts stores
along with the calipers. These pieces will
work on Metric or 68-72 Chevelle rearends.

A cheaper way of making rear disc brakes on a GM 10 bolt is to find you a Cadillac front wheel drive with rear disc. Get the rear caliper bracket, rotors, and the front calipers. You have to cut 16th of an inch off the hub of the axle so the rotor will slide over it. Other than that bolt on and go.
