would anyone want to mount a newer caliper with a 14" rotor?

Ok, they also made a bracket for the GT500 brembo 4 pot and used the same 3/4" spacer.

I was wrong about the cts v calipers, they can work though. What I was thinking about was the ats calipers. The only modifications needed are the mounting holes on the spindle need to be opened up to 14mm and slightly narrowed/closer together.

These bracket adaptors are for any s550 base brakes, not the 6 piston brembos. Unless Ford changed the design in ‘18 they should work.

I heard the ats were closer, but I think they are curved to work with a 13" rotor...

Here is where I am at and today on this project and I think I discovered what my problem was. After it had cut for a while for some reason it started to cut deeper than it should all of a sudden and then after that it wanted to drive the bit straight down into the material. I could not figure out what the problem was as I had never had an issue like that before and got so frustrated I just gave up. Today I was doing a long 3d carve (4 hours) and did some cleaning and organizing of my tool box and discovered this 1/4" collet. This was actually new from the manf so I never looked at it closely but the end where it actually grabs the bit must not have been tight enough. The collet builds a little bit of heat the longer it runs because of the exhaust from it blowing over it and after it got hot it seems like the bit had just enough space to slowly move and with an up cut bit, it pulls the bit down/out and that is why it was cutting too deep. I had read of a few people finding that their bits were slipping and I started to suspect it when I found this. I have enough material to do one set, I will have to give it a try....
