Yep, def lighter. Hold out was probably cost, I remember when the old man first switched to them on his 1st Burnett car all he talked about was cost vs. crash factor but you had to keep up with the times. The 1st calipers available were Hurst/Airhearts and they sucked plus were maintenence nightmares. Guys switched to Edco calipers, but even back in the '70's they were over 200 bucks apiece...but at least they stopped and had a good pedal. Then along came JFZ and Wilwood at a cheaper price with a good product and Edco went the way of the typewriter....
