Congrats! Now you won't have to worry so much about brake fade when you're running it hard.

I'm pretty sure it's a Stainless Steel Brake System or something along those lines. Sure works better than the old drums.

Cory, does yours allow you to still run 14" rims? I want to convert mine but a lot of the ones out there have to be used with 15" rims and I want to keep my Argent wheels.

Yes it does, I can find out all the specifics if you would like from the mechanic. That was one of the requirements when I handed over the keys, the stock styled steel wheels must fit without issue.
