SOT 13x1.25" Rotor '4R' Forged Aluminum Caliper System - Leading Mount
This maximum performance system is a must for serious street machines and high horsepower track cars. Offering maximum performance this system is a must for serious street machines and high horsepower track cars. Utilizing a deeper hat offset this system is a direct bolt on to '65-73 Mustang factory DRUM, SOT Big DRUM & SOT Billet Big DRUM spindles. Requires no wheel spacers to fit a 17" or larger Torq Thrust II style wheel.
Leading edge caliper mounting is required if using our SOT Billet Big Spindles. You may also choose to use this system on factory DRUM spindles should the leading edge mounting be desired.

|Why use such a large rotor? Well, simply put, heat. The friction created by braking creates heat and the more and harder you brake the more heat is generated. All that heat has to go somewhere and if the 'heat-sink' (rotor) gets so hot it can no longer absorb and shed heat then the heat will conduct and convect to other components. These other components will include brake fluid and wheel bearings, not places you want increased heat. The problem with large rotors is weight. All that weight is unsprung which will affect suspension performance and increase stopping distances.|
The rotor we use in this kit provides the best of both worlds. Increased thermal mass due to its diameter and thickness yet lighter weight when mounted to an aluminum hat. Maximizing the size of the aluminum hat and minimizing the iron rotor ring to only the pad swept area reduces the weight of the entire rotor/hat assembly to only 15lbs per side. That is 3lbs lighter than our 13x1.1" one piece rotor. The wide air gap of this rotor promotes more airflow and sheds massive amounts of heat keeping brake temperatures in check.
