I take it those rear rotors are the Baer eradispeed's? I was thing you got the Baer 12'' kit including calipers. That kit is discontinued a few yrs ago, I missed out on that kit.

Yea they sure do, The Matrix pads are awesome too. Just needs a little heat for the 1st one or two stops & your good to go. A great stepup is Baer's 2 piece rotors.

I didn't asked about the rear ones, they wanted 350 more for the two piece rotors, they told me they would have to drill a mustang hat to the 4x108 pattern as they don't have the hats for the focus anymore.

Well worth it, as they're half the weight of the 1 piece rotors. The hats start out bare, at least mine did.

My goal is to get to the to-do list this spring and summer. The engine is still pulling hard so everything else is just maintenance, but mostly patience and motivation on my part. I drive heavy crown vics at work and Explorers so when I get back into my car, it feels like I'm in a go-cart. I need to get my hands (or make myself) covers for my ST suspension coil overs in front asap. I don't need those failing on me.

Is it just me or does it look like there is a LOT of rotor area that is not going to be touched by brake pad on that kit?
