You can tell it is big, but having it off like that really shows you how much braking power we really have! Very cool!View attachment 10320 Have you guys seen the caliper and rotor with the wheel off? It's huge! I knew they were big, but damn!
Not OP, but I just recently swapped my pads for Powerstop Z23s. I had no issues getting the pins out/in. The process is nearly identical to previous Brembos I've owned, except this is the first one I've had with the bolt in the front caliper. I just use a punch, hammer and some gentle taps to move them. Just be careful not to slip and chip the paint. If you can get the wheels off and on without scratching them, you can definitely do the brakes without chipping a caliper.Did you have any issues getting the pins out
Yes. That, and I felt like the stock pads were too grabby for street driving. It was actually hard to stop the car smoothly, because it seemed like 1/8" of pedal travel was the difference between stopping and rolling. My previous experience with brembos on chrysler products has led to deeply scored rotors after a few thousand miles, because the pads were too aggressive. These (front) rotors are likely going to be a lot more expensive than my previous ones. I kept my stock pads so that I can use them when I take it to a road course (which will be once or twice a year). I'm generally not a fan of swapping pads back and forth, but it worked for me on my 300C SRT8.Are you doing it cause of all the brake dust
A picture is worth a thousand words!Front pad from a hellcat. Versus a 98 viper gts. View attachment 10161
