Time to upgrade my stock drum system. I'm not adding power brakes and I'm not adding disc brakes.
I am adding a dual chamber master cylinder, and I am replacing the lines.
I heard about the "Brake In a Box" system and I am wondering if it is worth the price. (Musclecarbrakes.com)
Does anyone have experience with it, and feedback they are willing to provide?

Thank you all in advance.

I've never heard of this product. A link might be helpful.

Ceramic brake shoes/pads have been around for a while and are significantly better than other materials. If the Kit you order has parts like springs, clips, adjusters, etc that are specific to your vehicle then it sounds like a good product. You can also get ceramic shoes from many sources and might be a better deal if all your other hardware is OK.

I've been running their complete kit with my factory drums for nearly 20 years now. I've got a 1956 210 2 door with a 235 & a 'glide. Their stuff works and John has amazing customer service skills.

The car stops well...for drums. I still run a single circuit master which, admittedly, is dumb. I've done several write ups of their products on Inliners.org, the H.A.M.B. and maybe even here.

I've got the complete trick kit including the high capacity wheel cylinders, spring kit, star adjusters and shoes.

It's as good as you're ever going to get drum brakes to work.
