Anodized brake rotors

Hello I recently picked up a 14 V6 and I've done a bit of research on American muscle as well as a couple other sites but was unable to find a pair of front black anodized rotors.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I read in the beginners guide to basically stay away from the drilled rotors to avoid cracking, so I'm trying to do that.

Also, could anyone suggest a good pad? I'm going for mainly street use but increased performance. I can't stand the stock brakes!

Side note: does anyone know if it's possible to use someone else's remote tuner on my car? The tune seems great but it doesn't seem like 2-400 dollars great

Thank you

1. you only anodize aluminum, so you would either have to paint or powder coat calipers.
2. im partial to carbotech, so check out their 1521 pad compound.
3. I have a spare set of calipers i'll sell you if you want to get them powder coated so you dont have any down time.

Questions about powdercoating:

Barton Shifter + 11-14 brake parts

Edit, i just realized i read your post wrong. That being said, you would still have to paint the rotors, powdercoating may not work the same... you're talking about just the hats right? Not the whole rotor?

I'm not really interested in any calipers although I appreciate the offer. Right now I think all I really need is a nice set of rotors and pads. The stock pads and rotors over heated on me trying to stop from 100mph and I think the rotors may have warped.

Trust me, they didn't, and how do you know they "over heated?" Also, what exactly are you looking for in "anodized rotors?"

The reason I know they overheated is because the wheel started shaking violently and I could feel it in the brake pedal, The reason I suspect they're warped after is because now when I brake the wheel has a slight shake to it. They don't have to be anodized, it was just my first choice and was wondering if anyone knew of any because I'm having a hard time finding them.

I've put drilled and slotted rotors on every mustang I've owned (still have to order for my current one). Never had any issues with cracking or warping. Keeps the heat down and prevents warping

I managed to "warp" (or put a pad impression on) stock rotors with a panic stop at highway speeds. Probably that had more to do with not releasing the brakes after I came to a stop. And no, I wasn't doing 100 mph.

No, on using someone else's tuner. You have to set it up for only one car. Evening purchasing or if someone gave you a tuner for free, you have to have it unlocked and then purchase your tunes. Bama has lifetime tunes, which most people have purchased.

Looks like no one told you, to own a Mustang, get's expensive.

In all the years (5) I have been on this mustang site and other mustang forums I have never heard to stay away from slotted/drilled rotors because they crack???? Where did you get this information from? A cracker jack box?

Now , I have seen debates on here if the drilled rotors were worth buying from a performance stand point. Many feel its strictly an apperence mod but never had anyone say they crack

Non 🍼and non 🌽fed. I $uck!

I love my drilled and slotted rotors. coupled with SS lines and they are fimer. I had so much brake pad left though stock Im still using the stock pads. low dust. will switch in 6 months to better pads but for now system is working out for me. Only thing is I think I might need to upgrade to dot 4 fluid maybe since a lot of braking in the mountains causes brakes to fade somewhat

No, only one car can be tuned at a time because losing the tune marries the tuner to the car. You'd have to return one car to stock to tune the other. And the tuner/tune IS worth the money.

It is strictly an appearance mod and they will crack in a performance standpoint (as in road racing). They look cool as hell, don't get me wrong, but they offer zero performance increase, and in some cases are worse than a premium blank.

That has been the general consensus about the slotted/drilled rotots. They are an apperence mod and personally will get them myself. Love the look of them. Since I don't auto cross road race, I will not have cracking issues. 😀
