So I buy both the front and the rear TCE conversion kits from HHP. I open the rear box, start the install. Nothing fits. I call HHP, they referred me to TCE. Ok say far. I soon find out they put the rear instructions in the box for the front. This would have been obvious if they had decent instructions to begin with. Ok simple mistake. Next I open the other box and the holes for the rotor hats are not large enough to to fit the stock studs on the car. I call TCE back. They tell me to just drill out the rotor hat myself? What, no offer to replace the rear rotors with ones that are correct for the car? So much for precision. Now I am using a hand drill to drill out a rotor hat on a car the will go 150 plus in the 1/4. $1600 for Junk quality control? A big do not buy in my opinion. Minimum they should have offered to pay for shipping back to them, and made the new stud holes and paid shipping back to me.

That shit would be going back to HHP if I bought it through them they would be the ones fixing it. If they refused or couldn’t I would be filing a credit card dispute and sending the stuff to them and they could return it to TEC and fight with them. Passing the buck, That’s unacceptable in my book
Been down this road a couple of times on parts. Didn’t settle then, and won’t settle now. Send it back and get your money back.

Lack of accountability between both companies. If you sell a product and act as a middle man for them (HHP) you should stand behind the product and handle the situation. Also, for TCE to tell you to just drill the holes bigger is absurd. Send it back. If they dont give your money back file a fraud charge with your bank and leave reviews. I havent had any issues with HHP thankfully.

@Hellcat Dave I am not a part installer, so I can't help you there with any wrenching knowledge.

But here is a good thread about another member installing the TCE 15 inch brake conversion.

My husband @Top Cat had 15inch conversion installed on his Hellcat back in 2015. Prior to that he also had them installed on my 2010 SRT8, done at Mr Norms garage by Tim Barth. They are made for our Heavy Cars.

Throughout the years I have seen posts on other forums about the extra work and the challenge it was to do the install. There are many parts in our Mopar world that are a challenge to install and may require some extra work to install.


Under the price line is this Description:

Our bushing kit comes with a custom made outer toe-link bushing which is required for all cars with a skinny ended toe-link for proper clearance for the 15" wheels.

For the Drag Racing enthusiast this rear kit offers low profile and low clearances needed to fit 15" Drag wheels and slicks! Incorporating an iron hat our rear rotors retain the factory parking brake making it safe for both street and track use. Fit: All factory wheels and many 15" Drag Wheels. Notes: Some drag wheels are known to have other clearance issues with regard to suspension components so please consult your supplier. Wheels from Bogart are confirmed to fit, Weld also. TCE does not make claim to wheel fitment regardless of brand! Some clearancing is to be expected. These are race components, it is the users responsibility to ensure a safe clearance is maintained both in the air and on the ground once your 15" wheel flexes under the weight of the vehicle. Contact HHP for more information or pictures of common contact points).

Starting with 2010 model years, the newer your car the greater the chance that it will required the early model skinny ended Toe Link selection. Measure Your Car! If your vehicles Toe Link arms are 1" thick at the outer bushing ends, you will most likely need the Aftermarket Toe Link selection as well to clearance the wheel properly.

For 2015+ vehicles we have seen the need for both skinny ended and adjustable length toe links on all vehicles manufacturered during this period - Option listed in drop-downs
Wilwood DP four pot caliper (4 piston) BP10 street pads TCE Radial mount brackets Specify RT or SRT Custom 12.25" rotor Plain finish (no slots or holes) Zinc plated Retains stock parking brake Stainless steel hose kit All required hardware to mount Brake Kit Optional RED powder coat finish Optional scalloped rotor
Direct bolt on for an easy conversion. Drag wheels known to have other clearance issues with regard to suspension components, which is why you will need our HHP Rear Sway Bar Endlink & Modified Bushing Kit. Must specify RT or SRT application for correct brackets. Rotor is plain face only, no gas slot or drilled & slotted option.
Application: For the Drag Racing enthusiast this rear kit offers low profile and low clearances needed to fit 15" Drag wheels and slicks! Incorporating an iron hat our rear rotors retain the factory parking brake making it safe for both street and track use.
Fit: All factory wheels and many 15" Drag Wheels. Minimum wheel barrel diameter: 13.7"
Notes: Drag wheels known to have other clearance issue with regard to suspension components so please consult your supplier. Wheels from Bogart and Weld fit our brake kit. RT application requires some cleancing of the stock radius arm washer and nut. Specify RT or SRT. Hellcat: SRT
*
Scalloped rotors for track use only, not safe for street and may allow debris into the parking brake area. Allow 2wks build time.
*New for 2021: TCE 2pc hats and rotors! Further weight savings and durability these 2pc parts replace your stock rotor directly and totally eliminate the parking brake parts for yet more weight reduction. Fully assembled and ready to bolt on.
Specs: Pair 19lbs vs 28 stock plus loss of shoes and hardware. NON p-brake only! Stock track and rotor width retained.

Just installed these, destroyed my new D5 Beadlocks.

Motor vehicle Automotive tire Bumper Automotive exterior Hood

This was even with grinding. HHP support reached out to me and said they dont recommend the D5s because of barrel diameter. Asked them in reply what the barrel diameter was of the wheels they sell. No response… sure enough said **** it, bye bye ear…

Tire Wheel Automotive tire Motor vehicle Tread

Kitchen utensil Automotive tire Gas Auto part Engineering

installed these beauties…

I see Barth sells a 15in conversion also. Are there the same issues with that? Grinding required?
Did you see who's brand Tim is selling?
Lots of new parts come to market.
Competition can cause better parts to be made. My husband ( @Top Cat ) pushed for aftermarket parts for our Hellcats.
The 6.1 SRT8s to get race parts was very difficult.

As far as brakes go, we just came out with our drag and street packages that will clear 15's. I am not sure on the rest of the suspension work needed but have a few customers transitioning to 15's and seeing what else they were needing to do.

It's always nice to have competition but in researching Aerospace products most are more about race cars. Most actual race cars are almost a couple of 1000lbs much lighter in weight of our cars.
Who's been T&T and R&D your brakes at the track? What is their ET and can you give us resultsfrom being Tested on 5000lb Hellcat?

Otherwise you are bringing paperwork marketing to this thread.

There are Shops and members that would be willing to test these brakes.

I believe tce is working on a stronger rotor when I talked to them earlier this month. Sounds like it was going to be more money but stronger.

We have been manufacturing street systems for years along with our drag race brake kits. The street kits work for daily driven vehicles like the Hellcats without a problem.

The TCE Brake kits can be used to Daily Drive, but we all use them for the weight savings and reliability when drag racing.

Are the Aerospace ones just a street kit for DD and maybe some street racing?

The kits are the best of both worlds. We are originally a drag race oriented company. That has translated into our street kits as well. The kits are huge in weight savings, will be able to take to the track and beat them up and street drive it without a problem.
