The floaters do help either these or the stocks for sure... Also ditch stamped steel drums indefinitely.

Hey guys, so I am trying to wrap my head around these comments. If a set of properly rebuilt 11" Model-A brakes and replacement cast iron drums will easily make 9 sudden panic stops in a row from 35mph - 00mph ...and then on the 10th pedal application it will completely lock the drums and slide the tires, exactly where is that difference coming from? Are we comparing worn 11" brakes to rebuilt 12" brakes??
