    I'm still "braking" :ROFLJest: them in. Will update on performance, brake dust, noise ect..

    Supposed to be around 5.5-6.5k which includes 6P front, 4P rear, ss lines, cross-drilled and/or diamond slotted rotors, brake pads, mounting brackets and ability to color customize calipers and rotor hats.

    Looks like in the background you have Method wheels. These work on stock wheels?

    That seems like alot of money for a 17" compatible kit made in China... I hope it's not mostly cosmetic.

    I wonder what Alcon are priced at?

    They do look good but not for $5500.

    Ya that seems like a lot for these. I would've guessed $4500 for everything

    Haven't tested yet, they are supposed to.

    R1 Concepts are designed, manufactured and assembled in USA Motha Fucka lol and Alcons are 6k.

    These could end up being 4k for all I know. That was just a guestimated price. Mine is the first prototype so they can see if I "brake" anything :ROFLJest:

    Alcon? I thought you said Brembo was the best of the best?

    I think they are the best, but yes they need bigger wheels and they're really expensive. They look good and perform well.

    The Alcons are ugly, they fit a 17" application, and apparently they perform really well. Personally if I was doing 17s on a truck I'd go Alcon since you won't see the brakes anyway.

    I'm not sure how well those R1 will perform, but damn they sure look nice :)

    Timely. I was shopping for 2-piece rotors for my RS and came across a brake company in CA called Rotora. In their clearance section I saw a kit for the F-150. I emailed them and asked if they would work on the Raptor and I was told yes. One kit left at and it includes (Clearance Price=$2,145 + shipping):

    FORD F-150 2012-2017

    Front: 6-Piston | 350x34mm | Street Pads | Stainless Lines
    Rear: 4-Piston | 348x25mm | Street Pads | Stainless Lines

    System Type: Street Challenge
    Caliper Finish: Hard-Anodized Black
    Disc Type: Airfoil Slot | 1-Piece Disc


    I asked and was sent a caliper template to see if it would work on my NVs and NO way it would fit. I am posting this as it is a killer deal but you may need 18s (zero offset or even negative) or even 20s. PM me and I can get you in touch with them and also provide the caliper template.

    The best is AP racing. They provide F1 cars their braking systems. Unfortunately they don't make kits for trucks. This is their kit for the Focus RS:
