Never heard any problems with the Raptor's brakes. What have you heard?

I think he just wants better performance.

If I recall correctly, Treypal had a new kit installed on his. You should search his build.

Well i have a complaint, mine stops like a cruse ship. I had to slam on the brakes once or twice and didn't think i was going to stop, almost rear ended someone (And i wasn't driving fast or erratic). Mine just do not seem to grip or stop very well if you have to use them in an emergency situation. I was wondering if it was just mine or if all of them are like that.

And I'm not looking for them to lock up, i know what ABS is, and that wasn't it, it just felt like they had no grip/stopping power.

I have the 2011 screw and i've had to hit the brakes hard a couple of times and thought the truck stopped great. No problem at all.

A Raptor is not a Porsche gt-1 (60-0 in 98feet)
It is a heavy ass truck. Yes, brake upgrades will help a little bit. The biggest/cheapest improvement is to allow increased stopping distance. Retrain your brain..

Just ask Mike at V.O.R.E how fast they lock up. hehehe
I came up on him one time at 100MPH and couldn't see him through the dust.
I thought I was going to have to hit the rockbank and climb out into the cactus to keep from kissing his ass,but they held just fine.
