Brake Q´s - Cobra "R" Brembo VS regular Cobra ???

I was thinking of upgrading my stock Cobra brakes on my 1998 Saleen to something better performing/looking. Really wanted to find a set of Saleen Alcons, but I´m about to give up on that idea as they are very hard to come by in perfect condition.

I then found these Brembo which apparently were supposed to be on the 2000 Cobra "R".

In what way are they different from the stock 13 inch Cobra brakes?

Anyone have a experience with these Brembos?

Thank you
Anders

A long cruise keeps me sane. If I drove less to save money on gas, I'd just have to spend it on a therapist.

Obviously it uses the Brembo caliper compaired to the Cobra PBR caliper. The Brembo is a 4 piston caliper compaired to 2. I also believe it is a 'fixed' caliper, the PBR is a floating caliper. I am pretty sure they can use the same rotor.

You better double check your wheel fitment. The 00R calipers will only fit behind a limited number of wheels. Look on the MM site. They have charts to tell you how much clearence you'll need.

Brembo

I have the Brembo Cobra R on my 98 Cobra with 03 Cobra wheels. They where easy to install, fit great, use regular Brembo Cobra rotors and they are a workhorse on the track. I use my car for track events only and I have been using Carbotech XP-10 pads with a Kenny Brown cooling kit. I get absolutely no fade during a 30 minute session at VIR. It is the best $1000.00 I've spent on this car!

All that's mentioned above plus the fact that rotors for the Alcon setup are close to $600 each if, I remember correctly, make the 00R setup worth the change to a different wheel
