Hot Compact and Imports SS How-to

This month in HCI (Hot Compacts and Imports) they have a how-to article for a SSBC big brake kit for the SS cobalts. There is also a sweet chamelon Fairlady Z and an article about HIN in there. Just thought people could check it out. It's not often the cobalt gets some attention from tuner mags.

Sounds pretty cool man, but did they actually test the stock brakes compared to the aftermarket kit?

HCI is more of a "How-to" mag so they have a lot of stuff like swapping in new turbo cams in ur turbo B-series honda motor or what-have-you. Just an example but the one thing they lack is testing even on the featured cars they don't give many performance numbers such as brake horsepower, torque, diplacement in cc's, etc.

Yeah I always thought it was stupid that they didn't test anything since numbers don't lie.
