                              I have the Wilwood setup on my car as it was made for the thing


                              the Alcon setup is very Good if i did not have the wilwood 4 pots I would buy the Alcon setup
                              mind you i can do a pad change on the wilwood 4 pots on my car in under 5 mins Both sides
                              from start to finish
