$900 Roush/Alcon Mustang GT 14" front brakes
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm building a coupe for the track - SN95 spindles, and the FFR IRS/completion pkg., currently with the 11.65" rear brakes.

I'm budget conscious but want the best braking performance I can afford, so when I saw this pricing...

Stage3 has a Rousch/Alcon Mustange GT 14" brake kit for $900. They also have a "Complete Front & Rear Brake Kit" where the 14" front brakes are combined with 13" rear rotors and brackets to space the "existing" mustang calipers out to accomodate them, for $1200 (I'd need a different braket for the IRS, so another $110):

Front-only kit:

Front/Rear kit:

Alternately there are Saleen 13" front brake kit for $1250 (rebranded Stoptech?):

I'm looking at 18" Steeda wheels to accommodate the large brakes, btw.

I've read comments that the coupes are rear-brake limited (yes?). With that in mind, would you recommend any of these packages, and would the rear brakes need to be changed to take advantage of the front brakes (ie, more than just the 13" rotor kit and mustang rear calipers, as in the Alcon Fnt/Rear kit)?

Thanks in advance, and hopefully if this is a good setup, someone else will benefit from the pricing deal!

Srcap all that, talk to Gordon at Levy Racing. He will set you up with the brake package I have been running this season, Wilwood SL 6 piston fts and 4 piston rears. The stopping power is unbelievable. I upgraded from the exact setup you have now.

I would burn through a set of pads and rotors every 2-3 weekends. Now after almost a full season, the pads only lost about 1/8".
