One thing the Mustang and all Ford vehicles have in common is the vital component of brake pads. Without these essential parts, the S550 Mustang would have a tough time coming to a halt, especially if you're going full throttle at your local autocross entering a corner. Over the years, braking technology has come a long way to aid the Mustang to become a formidable foe among the ranks of its Japanese and European rival counterparts. Unfortunately, the notion of a Mustang not braking and then entering a corner entry at high speeds without oversteering is a thing of the past.
Since the S550 Mustang stepped on the scene back in 2015, it displayed an entirely new age of handling, braking, and performance to bring it from muscle car to sports car. With the introduction of larger standard four-piston calipers and even more massive Brembo six-piston clippers were a first for a performance package oriented GT Mustang. While the factory braking components are among the most stout in Mustang history, the Mustang faithful are always looking for more brake bite and potential at any corner. Due to our humble beginnings in racing, after Steeda launched in 1988, we knew we had to offer a wide selection of upgradable brake pad for the racer who needs more brake bite at every hairpin corner or the enthusiast who wants more brake engagement while at their favorite canyon road. No matter what, we have what you need to bring your 2015-2020 stallion to the next level of braking performance.
At the root of every braking system is the brake pad; it is probably the most vital part other than your tires. For years the Mustang has been criticized for its braking capabilities; Ford took notice of this trend starting in 2013 by introducing the performance package to all fastback GT models. This trend continued even further in 2015, with the introduction of the S550 Mustang. The new breed to the stable introduced world-class performance in handling, drivetrain, and especially braking. To become the world performer amongst the likes of its Japanese and European rivals, Ford again took up the braking game to a whole new level. Introducing standard six-piston Brembo brake on every fastback and convertible performance package optioned pony. It helped the S550 Mustang come to a stop within just under a hundred feet from sixty miles per hour with over fourteen-inch rotors at the front.
To further this progress, Steeda has offered a wide selection of brake pad options to give enthusiasts the choice of taking their stallions braking to a whole new category of performance. With so much technology nowadays, there is no wonder why there is a wide selection of brake pad options to give more brake bite, pedal feel, and stopping power. A few ways upgraded brake pads do this is by the compound they are made of. Factory style brake pads are made for being quiet and comfortable for daily driving as where racing pads are built for the hardcore enthusiast that is only concerned about one issue stopping as quick and shorter than the competition. In turn, it will help with better handling, cornering capability, and balance throughout the chassis.
