    Are you looking for a GREAT brake upgrade package but want to retain your stock sized wheels? This great package works with all 1994-2004 Mustangs with the 13" Cobra/ Mach 1/ Bullitt front brakes with 13" rotors. This easy to install kit from Baer will convert your existing 13", twin piston caliper front brake system into a Baer 6P brake system.

    The 6P brake system delivers increased driver control and more immediate onset. Staggered bore sizes minimize pad taper. Designed for optimal performance, yet weighs just 6.5 pounds!

    Includes:
    -2x Baer 6P Calipers
    -Baer Sport Touring brake pads
    -Anti-rattle pad abutment shims
    -Bnjo bolts and crush washers
    -Mounting brackets
    -All additional hardware needed for installation

    *Will only fit Mustangs that already have 13" front brakes.
    *May not work with Stock wheels.


    Here's a picture I took of a Hawk HPS front Pad for the Stock Cobra PBR Caliper and the Baer 6P caliper. The pad for the Baer 6P caliper is significantly larger.

    FITS UNDER MANY 17" WHEELS INCLUDING STOCK 03/04 COBRA

    Who else wants a set? Calipers can be ANY color you want! If it's available in powder coat you can have it that color!


    Custom Colors Available!

    Here are pictures of them behind my customer's 2003 Cobra 17" wheels who open track's every month at Laguna Seca... I just asked him to send over the pics of the Baer brakes behind his 17" wheel.

    BTW, here are his comments to me when he sent me the pictures today


    "Hi Mike,

    Please find attached two pictures of my Baer Brakes. The kit fits well the 17 inch wheel standard wheel as well as my CCW racing tires. The only "challenge" is, the brakes will not fit the spare tire :)

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Best regards,"

    Can I ask what rotor this is? I have identical looking rotors on my car that were there when I purchased it, and haven't been able to figure out the brand.

    Also, is a dimpled rotor prone to cracking like a drilled rotor?

    What size pad do they use? One of the reasons I am not really bothering switching from the PBRs to the Brembos is because the Brembo pads are physically smaller. It looks like they would have less material contacting the rotor to add enough extra friction to make the swap worth the $ and hassle. Wondering how your Baer 6 piston caliper compares. It sure looks cool. Any hard braking data available?

    I think this is a EBC rotor... it's not one of ours.

    Dimpled Rotors are far LESS likely to crack... we have not had a failure yet and we've sold quite a few of them

    The 6P Caliper uses the same pad that the C6 Corvette uses so pad choices are plentiful and the prices are very reasonable. The C6 pad is a pretty good size.... if I have time tomorrow I will take a picture of the pad next to other pads so you can have a comparison

    Friction isn't a function of surface area. But thermal stability of the pads and rotor is, which is why when I looked at the pics I was disappointed they'd left just as much of the rotor face unused as the PBR's do.

    Another thing people are not taking into consideration is the stiffness of the caliper. The Baer 6P caliper is MUCH more stiffer and rigid than the stock unit.

    I figured that was a given

    Curious how the pad compares to the 2000R brembos

    Looks like you have to pull the caliper to replace the pads?

    The Baer 6 pad looks very similar to the stock PBR pad. The picture is a stock pbr pad versus a Y2k Brembo pad

    How are they pulled to change pads?

    If I had to guess I would say the two bolts that hold the caliper to the mounting bracket have to come off to get those pads out.

    If you look at the pic close you can see the slots in the caliper that the pads sit in. No pins to pull out to take the pads out the top on those calipers.

    To remove the pads all you have remove the caliper. Remove 2 bolts from the top of the caliper and the pads pop right out :) VERY EASY :)
