    Does anybody have any experience with these or know anybody that does? Specifically on 15" drag wheels (I know this is a long shot to find anybody on here running this setup). Met a guy at a meet up that had these and never saw Baer brakes on a 15" wheel. They looked amazing. Any info that you guys know just looking for

    ^right right right

    Most guys end up grinding to get the clearance just with cobras. You sure they weren't some form of caliper covers?

    Positive. Read up on the R&D here:

    These are 11" rotors designed specifically to clear 15" drag wheels with no modifications needed. That is for the fronts of course. The rears will warrant some changes, but I think running these things on the fronts would look nasty...and to be honest my stock brakes are absolutely terrible at high speeds even on the street. Here is a picture of the entire rotor/caliper on a 15" drag wheel:

    They have a template on their website to confirm you won't have clearance problems on the front before you purchase, but from what I read with Weld RTS's there is tons of room.

    Oh I didn't know you were still running the stock brakes still, ewwwww :) I wasn't comfortable [MENTION=12471]300[/MENTION]hp and those brakes on the street, 600hp has to be scary.

    Well I'm running different rotors and Hawk pads...thats about it...
    But yeah, it really isn't the best setup and an upgrade would be awesome. But no way am I getting rid of my wheels now so it looks like these may be the solution

    Just read the thread, the matte black with gloss black logo is pure brake porn.

    Did you inquire about the price?

    Agreed, that is absolutely sick. My second favorite is what they call "black ice"

    Pricing starts at $795, but depending on which color caliper you want can go upwards of $1,145. This price is for their front 11" rotor/caliper combo. Apparently, from what I am being told by multiple guys, is that as long as this template appears to not have clearance issues and weld wheels are apparently the best for clearance on these, they are literally a direct swap and no issues with 15" wheels. It looks like in the near future I may be the guinea pig for these fronts.

    If you click different colors, the pricing will update.

    Touche buddy. That's actually really freakin cool.... I want to be able to run the s197 brakes (which I was in on that group buy for the brackets) on a 17in weld wheel honestly. But I don't think it's doable without modifications, don't know :(
