Brembo GT-R Brakes?

I have a 2013 mustang and what to equip it with some brembo brakes. I got into their website and found out about the GT-R braking system. Do you suggest I buy this braking system or do you recomend something else. ( I take my mustang to the track once in a while). Thanks

What are you trying to do by switching to brembo brakes. For appearance or braking power or lower lap times or what?

I've heard good things about the Shelby Baer ones but can't go wrong with the brembo system.

Brembo is way too expensive for what you get. Willwood or baer make great kits for much less. Also remeber you will likely need new rims and tires with most big brake kits...

Brembo brakes are not going to make you faster on the track time. Just use that money for seat time. Coming out of a corner is way more important than braking for it.

I respectfully disagree ... if your brakes are starting to fade (and the stock brakes on our cars have repeatedly been called out in performance testing for fading quickly under hard driving), this WILL affect your lap times.

A car is a system, and that system includes both the accelerator AND the brakes -- both need to be functioning well and operated expertly to get the best times around any track.

A good set of track pads have done wonders for many.

Excellent! Then we agree that improved braking (whether through pads or new brakes) benefits track times.

The 2500$ you would spend on brakes would be better spent on suspension and tires. Once that is done, then sure go for brakes. Brembos are still overpriced.

Completely agree on the order of upgrades.

I agree as well but you could always get some track pads and slotted rotors? That'll be a whole lot cheaper and may give you that extra braking you're looking for

+1. I love my drilled and slotted rotors. They were cheap and the initial pad bite is nuts.
