Where you at in IL?? If you are "north", you could see mine in person before making your decision as I am just east of Lake Geneva.

Been searching for take-off brakes from GT500, no luck in SoCal yet, anyone have any good tips for finding them? Maybe shops that do the upgrades that get the take-offs?

Thank you,
Dave

Like I said in my earlier post, you can find them on the team shelby forums. This guy wants a little to much, but they are always coming up on their for sale section. Those guys are always upgrading their brakes.

If prices were equal, what would you get, the 14" 4-piston Brembo GT500 kit or the Saleen kit made by Stoptech...and why?

Thanks,
Dave

Got a set of GT500/brembo take-offs for the front.

Now a question...has anyone upgraded the fronts w/14's like this and then taken the stockers from the front and adapted brackets for use on the rear? I know nearly everyone just upgrades the fronts, but I'm curious about this just in case it maintains better balance front-to-rear. Seems odd to just upgrade the fronts and leave the rears alone. I already have a rotor and pad upgrade on the rear, so it's probably fine, but just curious about this anyway.

When I got my Brembo fronts, I also upgraded with ss lines, hawk pads, and DBA rotors all around. They are very well balanced as is. Most all of your braking comes from the front anyhow. Post some pics when you're done.

Anything the same size as the stock rotors that are better? Mine are warped really bad and I cant run bigger than stock since I run 15 inch rims at the track and big ones wont fit over the rims. Im looking for ones that will hold up without warping and will perform better than these junk *** stockers.

Got hawk pads and upgraded rotors in the rear already, will do SS lines throughout. Best place you'd recommend buying them?

Also, has anyone video'd their brake swap/installation? I'll wing it with a friend, but it's always nice to get a preview in case there's anything in particular that needs special attention.

Can't seem to find my chip reader for my camera, but I took pics after the installation tonight. Will post pics soon.

Ended up using the stock lines, the GT500 lines were too short. I wasn't expecting that.

Anyway, after bleeding the brakes, went for a test run. Very nice improvement!

I'll do SS lines next. But for now, after doing a good bleed, the pedal feel is much firmer than before, so I'm pretty happy right off the bat.
