Super happy with this Brakes


"This S4 4-piston caliper mounted to a 11.625" x .810" directional (2 piece) slot, drill, zinc plated rotor. This is designed specifically for heavy, fast drag cars that rely on their brake to launch or stage the car, and WILL SAVE 68.2LBS UNSPRUNG / ROTATIONAL MASS from the factory units they replace.

Holy sh*t, that's a good amount of weight shed. Any difference in stopping power?

I'd be curious on the amount of brake dust generated. On all my drag cars, the race version of pads gave off a lot of dust. Please report back your findings. If these are comparable to stock brake dust, accumulation, I'd be interested.

Yes from just seeing my stock calipers and rotors these way super less. Dont notice any difference from stopping power if not better than stock.

I was told by Baer that they will produce alot of dust lol. I will be coating my wheels before I go crazy w these brakes.

For Brake dust 2015 Mustang and up Baer uses a high friction ceramic street pad. Therefore no increase in dust or noise.

Any new updates on these brakes? I want these almost just for the cosmetic reasons for the ugly rear brakes on the cars now. I have a Auto GT Premium, will these brakes hinder anything for street use comparing to the stock brakes front and back? Thanks

No Increase in brake dust unless you use Race pads provided by Baer. Stopping power not as sensitive like the stockers. So far so good.
