It’s not every day we work with a Dodge Viper, but it’s certainly not outside our comfort zone. Recently this yellow First Gen Dodge Viper hit up our team of Mod Experts about giving this V10 Musclecar the stopping power to match its acceleration. Our Mod Experts recommended converting to a Big Brake setup from StopTech Brakes to let this super snake stop on a dime and promptly shipped out the performance parts needed to make it happen. The owner of this Viper then sent us these photos to share with you!
Up front, we’ve replaced the kind of dinky OEM calipers with a set of matching yellow StopTech calipers with oversized cross-drilled rotors for good measure.While at the rear, that ridiculously small rear caliper goes the way of the dinosaurs in favor of this massive StopTech caliper to balance the brake force more evenly front to rear than the stock brakes did.
Here’s the front brakes – these things look like a piece of artwork. The rears look equally at home fitted to the car.
Here’s how the StopTech brakes look installed on the car with the wheels reinstalled – the oversize rotors fill up the barrels of each wheel and the bright yellow calipers add a great accent to tie the car’s black-and-yellow theme together.
