The thought behind that is weight reduction! Lol
It's an autocross car and those brake drums were just heavy, unsprung weight.
Fred Flintstone had the same brakes.....and they worked.
Wow. I'm amazed the shoe assembly didn't just fly apart. It always looked to me like the drum helps hold everything together. Crazy somebody actually thought that was ok to drive like that.
Some one took the drum and beat it! And the backing plates as well.
good news, the linings and hardware and in great shape!
About 17 years ago when I was working as a Diesel mechanic I had a Freightliner M2 come in for a soft brake pedal . I start checking the brakes and when I looked at both front brakes I was shocked at what I just saw
The only thing left of the front rotors was the hat , the disc was completely missing and the calipers were destroyed . I then get my boss to look at this and he was shocked at what he saw . We then look up the unit history and this truck was running 24/7 about 8500 miles or more per month . Can't believe these drivers didn't see this on their Pre Trip inspections
Probably weren't doing them!
Lol...so that's the lifetime warranty brake job!
