The Eradispeed is a two-piece rotor. It will be a direct replacement for the factory rotor on your Performance Pack GT. There's also one available though for your non-performance pack and your EcoBoost Performance Pack cars as well. Like I said it's a direct replacement, so it's going to be a 15-inch rotor, and features a billet aluminum 6061 hat that is anodized black. The rotor itself is cross drilled, vented, and has these veins for better heat dissipation, and they're going to be lighter than your factory rotor as well. Everybody knows removing rotating mass is a great way to improve performance on your car.
Obviously, the installation is going to begin by removing the wheel. What you want to do is break the lug nuts free on the ground, and then put it up in the air and remove the wheel.
With the wheel off, we've got to remove the caliper next. The caliper is held on the bracket by two bolts: one bottom one down here, the other one up top here. Then slide the caliper off. The best place to put it is back here on the crossmember.
Now, depending on your situation, one of three things will happen here. In some cars, the rotors will come right off. Other cars, I actually have seen small little retaining washers you've just got to pop off with a set of vice grips or a small screwdriver. In the case of my car, the wheels I'm running have these hub-centered rings on here, so I have to pop the ring off first before my rotor's going to come off. With the ring off, now I can remove my rotor.
You can see the comparison between the stock rotor we just removed and our Baer Eradispeed Rotor. You can see the difference in the venting up here obviously, and then of course the veins, the cross- drill, the two piece versus one piece. Let's be honest, they look a lot better as well.
We're in our shipping department with one of our shipping scales here to show you the weight difference in the rotors. Here is the Stock Performance Pack Rotor, so 32.9 pounds. Now, the Baer Eradispeed, 22.5. You're talking over 10 pounds, almost a 10.5 pound weight difference, that's rotating mass off the front of your car. Both sides you're taking 20 pounds off the front of your Mustang.
Now we're ready to install the Eradispeed rotors on my 2015 GT. They are going to be labeled left and right, just want to make sure you put them on the correct side. If for whatever reason the sticker wasn't there, the veins are going to be facing forward when installed, so the opposite of rotation, basically.
The direct replacements just pop right on. Now I'll reinstall my ring, then we can reinstall our caliper. It's going to be a little bit easier maybe to start at the top, push it on there. Then we're going to repeat the process on the other side, and your installation's finished.
Once you have your new rotors on and your wheels are bolted on, you torque everything back to spec, you're ready to take it for a ride. Now what you want to do is you don't want to take these out and just beat on them immediately. There is a seasoning process with the rotors to make them work properly. What you want to do ... the detail process is covered in Baer's instructions, but the basics are going to be take the car out, drive it normally for about five to six days. You want to get several heat cycles through the rotor. You don't want to get it really hot or really cold, but you want to do some normal driving with it. After that, there's going to be a series of stops: 40 miles an hour to 15, 60 to 15, it's a whole series that you're going to do to properly season the rotor. If you don't do that, the rotor can get build-up on it, it can crack, it can damage. You definitely want to take the time to season them properly, especially with the investment on a rotor like this. You get lots of performance and it will last a long time.
In my opinion, the Baer Eradispeed Rotors are almost worth the upgrade just for the looks alone, as they look killer with the factory Brembo brakes. But add to the fact that they are 10 pounds lighter a piece and much better heat dissipation, you're going to get a performance upgrade as well. The installation is going to be very easy, take you probably less than an hour to do both sides, so you'll be back on the road in no time.
