Iíve never had bite issues on the base GT brakes, my problem has always been overheating and entirely washing out. As far as Iím aware, the PP Brembo upgrade brakes donít have any cooling advantage. I probably just need to swap rotors and pads. Already been using different fluid.

Brandon will probably know, I donít know enough about brakes.
People with SS's upgrade to ZL1 calipers and rotors (6 piston front vs 4 piston and larger front and I think the rear is larger too) so you can find SS takeoffs for a lot cheaper than that haha

----------

In fact I've seen ZL1 takeoffs for less than a thousand I'm pretty sure

The rotors are significantly larger so they have larger vents. Haven't had any issues with them overheating and I've gotten on them pretty hard after doing pulls.

I think Base GT fronts are 4 POT 14”

The 6 POT 15” Brembo Fronts are about $1,300

Il look into it more when I get around to upgrading brakes. But I may just do new rotors for my current setup and better pads.

I'm about fed up with the pads on mine. They squeal like a motherfucker. I can do a couple hard stops and it'll stop for a day or two but then it goes right back to squealing. Just tripped over 2100 miles

They put off an insane amount of dust as well. Wheels stay clean for about 2 hours

Hard top is the way to go imo for DD.


Welcome to the world of high-performance brakes Brandon. Also you want to come to a decently hard stop every time, don't just gently cruise to a stop

I preferred the soft top mine had.

I had high performance brakes on the Bullitt. It came factory with the same brakes as the mach 1 and cobra. On the highway I do a hard stop most of the time but around town I don't. I do a lot of rev matching.
