    I was already working with TJ and Brian Dopp on a separate order. Received an email from Brian yesterday on the rotors and I decided to add them to my purchase.

    Rotors were delivered on Tuesday and I'll have pics up on IG most likely later today. If there is any specific pictures or questions that any of you would like to get answered by someone other then steeda feel free to shoot me a PM and I'll answer as well as I can.

    I'm sure some are curious as to why I decided to go this route rather then upgrade to the Brembos ... Cost of the Brembo upgrade is very reasonable, but I'd want to run 2 piece rotors on those as well, once you figure the cost of the calipers and rotors I'm at least 3xs what I paid for these rotors and in that price range (even at a much larger cost) I'd rather go all the way with an Essex AP Racing BBK.

    With this rotor upgrade the Essex kit is still on the future mod queue, and these should be a nice stop gap until then. Will be pairing with G Lok R6 pads.

    I've got a buddy who likes HDPE events and started off with a 15 PP GT and ended up moving into a GT350R, once I finish this round of mods I plan on getting him behind the wheel of my build and collect some feedback to share with the community from someone who has a lot more experience than I

    How good are the base brakes with these rotors vs the Brembo setup is my question. Im on the fence...

    I am weighing this question in my mind as well. I will probably end up staying with base brakes and just upgrading the pads and the rotors. If I had to guess, I'd still give the nod to the Brembos.
    I want to keep my stock 18" rims for winter duty so hence why I don't want to switch to Brembos.

    These with a good pad will be very good. The Brembos will have more ultimate track capability because they can deliver more brake torque and will have better pad wear. The Brembos will also have better brake feel because it's a significantly stiffer caliper. That said, the base brakes with a correctly-vented rotor like these, forced cooling, and some GLOC pads will be very, very good.

    I threw one of these rotors on the scale yesterday and got 25lbs which puts me at a 7.12 lb reduction for the pair. When I switched to forged wheels I could feel the weight difference immediately. I'm really looking forward to experiencing this additional reduction in unsprung mass.

    I rarely track my car if ever. I do hit the backroads every now and then and noticed on a 80 degree day some weird pedal feel and knew immediately what it was. I think this is the best route for me.

    They are 1'' larger but the weight saving will be nice on the rotors.

    How many people needed for a group buy on the Non-PP rotors?

    To add to this, I don't think most people understand just how good the GT brakes are. The PP brakes are fantastic (in fact there are a few BBK packages available for the s550 that are imo inferior to the PP brembos).

    I think those of us with non PP GTs or PP ecoboost Mustangs were given great brakes as well, and these rotors will address their biggest short fall.

    As far as group pricing goes I think if you message Steeda you'll be pleasantly surprised with the response.

    If the GT/EBPP brakes had been rear-vented I wouldn’t even think about a brake upgrade until I established that I needed it. That’s really kind of silly, as I think the GT brakes will work fine for me in autoX. These rotors look like a great interim step.

    I can confirm the GT/ eco pp brakes work just fine for autox. I have 0 issues with them, no hints of fade at all. Now suspension, there is some work to be done lol. Magneride can do only so much, need Steeda parts.

    Agreed the base brakes are more than capable for autocross with a good pad, even with sticky tires. I'll be upgrading to the Brembos because I plan on doing more track driving.

    I'm still on stock pads but I'm also a novice so for someone like me they are fine. After another season or two I will likely upgrade the pad and maybe rotor once I get some more seat time.
