Does anyone make a brake adaptor for the r/t challengers to fit the Brembo brakes? Seems like a fairly easy thing to do like they have on the big brake kits from stoptech and baer. I can't find any out there.

Did you check TCE Performance Products? I know they do a lot of brackets for Wilwood, not sure what else.

The easiest way is to swap spindles, rotors and calipers.

I did an SRT rotor upgrade on 10 Challenger R/T with C6 Corvette pads. I used after market Drilled & Slotted rotors. I updated the rears with the Police Daytona caliper braket and rotors. Again I used after market Drilled & Slotted rotors.

Would I do it again? No. The rears? Yes as I used stock MOPAR parts.

Sorry 4 grand for brakes IS NOT cheaper by a long shot. I'm personally not to worried about stock wheels. I'm running mickey thompson wheels. I know these clear the brembos. Even if I completely switched out the calipers and spindles and hubs I can do that way less expensive than these kits. I personally think those particular sets of wilwoods are overpriced. Thats why I'm looking for brackets that will adapt. I figure if those brembos are good enough for a hellcat and demon they will be good enough for mine. Also if I need replacement parts a dealership is fairly easy to find.

Were the the fronts the serious metal parts upgrade kit? I think they went of of buisness awhile back.

unless you can get a donor vehicle and buy the needed parts inexpensively, ok

to do it with new parts your going to be closer to 8500$ in parts, maybe a little higher, maybe 9K

if your tracking the car you will find the Brembos have a tendency to fade badly unless you change the brake pads to something else.....

for example, BR4 front spindle new

https://www.stevewhiteparts.com/oem-parts/mopar-knuckle-5039030ae

825.60, msrp 1150.00 x 2

plus brackets, plus wheel bearings, front and rear and you dont have brake rotors, calipers, brake pads, hoses, etc

only way to do Brembo is with a donor vehicle (junk yard vehicle) and hope the stuff is not bent or damaged,

I would definately be looking at the used parts if I was going this route, but again thats why I asked if anyone knows if there are adaptor brackets that are made to fit the brembos on the r/t's spindles. I just don't think 4k on brakes is a reasonable price.

I might consider doing this if I could find that adaptor bracket and just run a bit more aggressive pad material than a stock vette has.
Sold my kit complete with pads and rotors. Adapters are not available as far as I know.

Look into tce performance. They are my future upgrade. Talked to the guy over the phone, he makes his own brackets. Wilwood aero6 calipers, with rotors and pads was like $1700

I think its even cheaper for the sub 15 models
