Wins SEMA Global Media Awards
At the recent SEMA show held in Las Vegas, CPP was honored to receive two SEMA Global Media Awards for the CPP GM AFX Muscle Car Disc Brake Kit by Brembo. Recognizing the increasing global appeal of specialty automotive style and performance equipment, SEMA presented the annual Global Media Awards to select member companies. Held at the 2008 SEMA Show, the award ceremony attracted hundreds of international buyers, SEMA-member company representatives and the press.
“We are honored to have been selected for these awards” said CPP’s Jim Ries. “Our exclusive partnership with Brembo, who’s reputation for world class braking systems is well known in this industry, has been a great experience.”
“Our goal was to have media experts from around the world determine which new products are likely to succeed in their home markets,” said Linda Spencer, SEMA director of international and government relations. “SEMA’s Global Media Award reflects the niche market segments our member companies have helped establish,” Spencer added. “This award represents one of SEMA’s latest initiatives to recognize the innovation, creativity and drive of our member companies. These awards confirm that the specialty-equipment market has indeed gone global.”
The CPP Muscle Car Disc Brake Kit by Brembo is available exclusively through Classic Performance Products. Brembo’s billet aluminum bells with their “float” bushings allows the disc to seek its true centerline for consistent braking performance. The floating disc design reduces heat and stress transfer to wheel bearings and hubs. The two-piece rotor assemblies also reduce the un-sprung weight (approximately 8 lbs. per corner) for better handling, quicker response and better acceleration.
The mounting system is designed to allow a specific amount of float in both radial and axial directions. Brembo has designed special anti-rattle springs that are used on every other fastener in order to slightly preload the assembly, as well as preventing excessive noise from the system during street use. Brembo’s high performance calipers have 4 sequentially sized pistons for even pad wear (40/44mm dia), create zero off pedal drag, and are assembled with Ferodo high performance pads. The quiet running Ferodo street/track brake pads are suited for high end street use as well as limited track application. This system works with disc brake spindles and CPP Modular™ Drop Spindles. Fits 1964-72 Chevelle (and other GM “A” body), 1967-69 Camaro and 1968-74 Nova.
