Rear Brembo kit for 20111

Recommended Posts

Why can't I find an upgrade kit for the rear brakes on my 2011 Shelby GT500? My last car (M3) had all kinds of options. I want my rear brakes to look like the fronts.

it looks like unless you want to upgrade to the Baer kit and new wheels i.e. http://www.shelbystore.com/product-p/4262113.htm

you have to just do a rotor upgrade. Maybe painting the calipers and putting a stencil would would. I am thinking the same thing. Stock looks like crap.

Agree the stock rear brake appearance leaves something to be desired.

 

Here was my solution:

Are those Baer rotors? or ebays one, I found these ones on ebay and Im thinking to buy it, seem good quality and have good reviews on the web. http://www.ebay.com/itm/390453187823?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

Why not FTBR's 13" rear kit? It allows use of the stock rear caliper via an included bracket?

Here's the 13" floating two piece rotor on my '09...

My rear brake setup is the Shelby/Baer EradiSpeed+2 kit which includes 14" rotors and, like FTBR, the kit includes caliper relocation brackets to reuse the stock rear calipers.

 

And this set up matches the Shelby/Baer Extremes I have up front.

 

However, I do like the FTBR rotors since these are not cross-drilled.
