1999-2004 Carbon-Ceramic Brake Rotors

Anyone know of a manufacturer or distributor that sells these for 99-04 Mustangs?

Looks like Power Stop brake pads are carbon-ceramic.

Hard to come by. I want to get a set of Carbon Brakes when I eventually get my 14" 6P all around


Bullitts are better than Bullets

Does anyone make/sell a set? The pads are easy to get but I can't seem to find rotors. Currently I have the 99-00 Cobra upgrade with cryo treated Power Slots along with EBC red pads but I plan to take the car to VIR next summer and I'd like upgrade them for a circuit track.

Usually stuff like Carbon Rotors like that, they often come in a full brake kit. If you plan to go down that road I would highly recommend upgrading from the 2 piston front and 1 piston rear set up, very sub par.

I would definitely like to do that but I'm trying to do this on a budget..whole car is getting rebuilt...I figure upgrading the brake materials along with braided lines might be all I'll need for now.

You're gonna need to be braking really hard and often to need some carbon ceramic rotors. Do you have enough experience to drive like thay? These Cobra brakes are nice but they don't do enough to really necessitate such a nice rotor.

I've never circuit raced my car, however, I use to race a kart in an organized series.

Alright, it'll definitely be a different experience but it'll be fun. If you're just trying to shave some weight I would just buy a 2 piece rotor setup. Why exactly do you want carbon ceramic rotors?

Why not? Lol...I know I'll be putting a lot of stress on the rotors and I'd like something that will be virtually fade free...plan is to drive to Virginia from Canada in our cars for a track day, then drive back--over the course of a few days...going with a couple of buddies...kind of a bucket list thing...

Your rotors will be fine. Brake pads and fluid are more likely to cause brake fade than the rotors will. I've had about 5 track days with no issues with my rotors at all

So you've circuit raced your car and no issues with brake fade? Are you using stock sized rotors/pads or do you have an upgrade?

He has cobra brakes with upgraded lines and good pads.

I'm about to get Russell Stainless brake lines with Hawk HPS pads, and then drilled/slotted rotors for mine.

Cobra brakes, EBC Yellowstuff pads, and Powerslot rotors. I'm still on stock lines unfortunately. After heating up and fading initially they worked great with no issues. I still had enough gripto briefly lock up the fronts doing 90 if I wasn't careful.

That sounds like a fun trip!

The rotors that you already have will be more than adequate.
If you want to really improve your track experience, get a set of 200 tread wear tires for your car. That will make a HUGE difference. And you won't be able to drive your car hard enough to make use of a "racing" brake setup until you become skilled at driving a New Edge fast on R-comp tires anyways...

Good to know...your setup is almost exactly like my current one--I have EBC reds with the Power Slots....rubber lines though...

Get some stainless lines and some DOT 4 fluid and you will be good. Just remember to bleed them after the track day so that you can get your pedal feel back.

Hopefully the trip pans out...going with 3 other guys...one with a GTR...one with a '95 Mustang...one with a fully rebuilt MR2...and my '00...hence why I'm starting to build my car now...

I planned on getting the Nitto 55's for the trip...I hear these are a great street/track tire....

Look into Hankook Venus RS3s if you aren't on a wide wheel. They have great grip and aren't terribly expensive. I wasn't able to push them to their limits very easily on my last track day.

Sounds like one hell of a group you're heading out with

Lol...ya, a pretty diverse group..my buddy with the GTR use to have a Camaro--then landed a great job...and my other buddy with the MR2 use to have a built '95 GT-sold it--but still has a near mint '91 GT convertible....so we're all American muscle guys at heart...

Good question....i don't have one but I'm sure one of us will be getting video of the trip/track day somehow...the plan is to go late June/early July 2015 so we have time to figure out that detail by then...
