Damn I wish I had some money.... :(Whats the difference between these and the Grand touring brakes? Besides the price and obvious length? Are these as good as the Grand touring ones, and can they come in Red? I want the grand touring ones, but $2,700.00 is even harder to come up with! :doubt:

I'm not a brake expert but are these the Grand Touring Brembos? If so, they are available at Maximum Motorsports for a lot less than $2700 I think.

(I used the slotted rotor pic, but the kit I bought from MM was the plain rotors and they were only $1049. Bolted right up on my 95 GT car.)

Sorry, I didn't mean your link. I was responding to spitfire's post about grand touring Brembo's costing $2700.

Originally equipment brake pads on 2000 Mustang Cobra ''R''.
Question:
Are they a good pad? And if so, what compound of rear pad matches them or is compatible?


Topic:
With the Brembo 2000 Mustang Cobra “R” setup with stock Cobra rear brakes.
I want the Brembo’s to perform with out tearing up the rotors.
Question:
What is a good compound to run for more street driving and some track braking?

The pads they come with...(Galphers... http://www.fordracingparts.com/parts/part_details.asp?PartKeyField=6620 ) are supposed to be ok for the street... limited track. They will be my street pad.

I'm going to try the Carbotech 12s for track only use... w/ dedicated track rotors.

Answer:
The pad is ok for track use. I have used them at TWS. They just don't bite like the PF01's. Stock rear 03/00R pads work ok

Answer:
I would run the stock pads that came with the kit. They should be fine. I think they were made by Galpher.

I have two sets of pads...One for the street and one for the track. The front track pads are Performance Friction 01's or Hawks HT10's. On the rear I use PF 95's and don't change them for street use.

Nope those are the normal 4 piston 2000 Cobra R upgrade kit which is a 13" rotor ONLY deal.

Larry has the 14" kit on his 2000 R...

Thanks DUDE's.

I am looking for something that I can run the same setup for street and track. I do not have the money to change out pads or rotors as the setup changes, you know what I mean. I need long wear time with good braking responce without tearing up my rotors.

I was thinking for example:
Hawk Performance’s HP Plus brake pad compound is ideal for Autocross and Track Day drivers and gets you home safely without having to change the pads.

HP Plus fronts and rear pads.

:dunno:

Ahh, my bad. The box my kit came in said "Gran Turismo" but you're correct, they were the 2000R brembos.

Is this a bolt on affair for 99GT spindles (of course with the 13" rotor), or is there a bracket that needs to be purchased for the upgrade?
