High Performance Brake Package

Hi guys,

First time poster. Not yet an SRT owner, but strongly considering ordering a '17....

I have a question about the available "high performance brake package." From searching this site, I've been able to glean that it's essentially 2-piece slotted rotors (with aluminum hats) in place of the stock 1-piece rotors? Same size as the stock rotors. At a price of $1295, that's a very good deal for 2-piece rotors at all 4 corners. The rotational weight savings are substantial. Can anyone confirm that I'm correct that the "high performance brake package" is essentially the 2-piece slotted rotors front and back? No changes to calipers or pads? I asked the dealer and called the SRT hotline, and no one could give me any further technical specs....

Also, in looking at the on-line photos of dealer SRTs with the high performance brake package, it doesn't look like those rotors are slotted. They look like solid surface rotors, the same as stock? Can anyone share their experience with this brake package and/or photos? Thanks!

Carmine

Re: High Performance Brake Package

They do have slots...but just a few. Not like the aftermarket slots.

See page 7. Rear performance discs are one-piece. Whether the "rotational weight savings [will be] substantial" in a vehicle with a 5,104 lb curb weight is debatable.

Thanks - this is very helpful! Agreed that the SRT is a heavy beast, but a loss of 8-10 lbs of rotational mass at each wheel should make a noticeable difference in terms of handling, responsiveness, and ride comfort..... But nothing will change the fact that the SRT is built like Haystack Calhoun.

Can you confirm that the front two-piece rotors and the rear one-piece rotors of the High Performance Brake package actually reduce unsprung weight at each corner by 8-10 lbs?

Purely a guess and generalization on my part. I don't know a thing about the High Performance Brake Package (thus this post!). My guess was based upon the fact that the Racing Brake 2-piece rotors for the SRTs save about 9 lbs for each front rotor, and about 7 lbs for each rear rotor....

Re: High Performance Brake Package

I can confirm that just the fronts are a 2 piece rotor. And the slots are NOT as pictures above. Below is a pic I took last night of them at a car show here in Kuwait.

Re: High Performance Brake Package

Actually 8-10 lb savings of unstrung weight are a big deal, regardless of how heavy the vehicle is......

Re: High Performance Brake Package

Do they make the same loud clicking noise when making tight slow turns (like in parking garages)? The 2 piece brakes on my Challenger click like crazy, dealer says it's normal.
