I must be thick in the head, but cannot find these on their website. Are they no longer selling them?

Dealer bodyshop replaced the hood and therefore debadged the hood since I caught them before applying the emblem. Awesome

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

New SRT as of last Friday...

Have already debadged. Added black SRT badges at front lower fenders.
Added AFE Power Momentum GT intake.
Next up is tint, 5% on rear and 20% on front.
Have RM mid springs on their way.....

More to come. I've been planning this out in my head for years. I finally bit the bullet. We only live once.

I haven't seen the CF rings on their website for sometime. But they might make a set if you call them. My experience is that they are quite responsive.

I still have my black set of rings.

Are you trying to sell your oem black set? I'm contemplating on having mine painted but rather just scoop of factory oem black ones.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

Why shouldn't ceramic pads be used? I loved them on my 2010 SRT8 Challenger and put Z23 pads on my 2016 Challenger Hellcat a few days after I bought it. They're quiet, stop well and NO BRAKE DUST! Now I don't have clean the wheels after 50 miles of driving. That was crazy!

comparatively, ceramic pads are softer and cannot handle their duties as well when stuffed under our heavy SUV's and then subjected to repeated heavy braking...they allow way too much heat build-up that can easily warp the rotors

you could likely get away with ceramics on our SRT's if you don't track it, don't tow or don't ever experience heavy repeated braking use (track, rush hour, whatever) but it's not worth it for the dust/noise reduction...IMHO, if you can successfully use ceramic pads on your SRT you bought the wrong vehicle per se....dust is a badge of honor

Perfect explanation. Thank you. I too was debating ceramic pads as replacement to OEM. I decided to go with Scott's recommended setup.
