Returning from running my Turbo-1 swapped 1982 Rampage at the GRM Challenge this weekend, one thing that I came away with was that I really wanted (more realistically needed) to upgrade the brakes to stop better both for handling purposes but also safety (both on the strip and on the road). I've read a moderate bit about the S-body upgrade, which is what I had planned to do- but the problem is that thanks to a last-minute change of plans I ended up with a set of WIIIIDE 13" race wheels with sticky tires and a full set of the same replacement tires. So I'd really prefer to maintain the ability to run those 13" wheels, but it looks like going to the S-body brakes would mean I'd have to run 14" wheels at minimum.

Am I wrong on that, and will the minivan brakes still fit a 13" wheel? Or is there another brake setup I could use that would improve the stopping power while keeping smaller rotors/calipers? Thanks!

I think it partly depends on your wheels.

For example I have a 1985 K car wagon with 13" 4 bolt wheels but not all 13" wheels fit.

I tried some other 13" FWD Dodge wheels and they wouldn't clear the calipers.

Thanks

I'll have to keep that in mind... I need to measure the race wheels that are my limitation and see exactly how much room there is.
