After a dozen or so 60-0 mph stops, and an almost equal number of adjustments on the proportioning valve, we reduced our stopping distance down to 130 feet. The really cool aspect with the Baer's is that the braking distance kept getting shorter with each stop, defying the typical notion that with heavy and prolonged use, brakes will fade and lose their effectiveness.

Our distance was also admirable given that our Camaro is running Nitto 555's-a great street tire, but one that sports a rigid 300 treadwear rating. A more performance oriented tire (180-200 treadwear rating) would have brought our stopping distance down even further. This level of performance is on par with the some of the best Pro Touring cars we've ever tested, and will certainly provide our Z28 with enough stopping power to be competitive at an open track day or autocross.
