LOL shows how shitty our brakes are. I know my are burning up every time i check on them.
This car has prob the worst brakes I have ever used. I go through rotors and pads non stop.
On a side note, its funny how chrysler continues to use shitty parts, even on their srt8 models they dont use brembo brake calipers as high performance vehicles do. They use a chrysler specific rotor designed by brembo act as a floating caliper on a fixed rotor rather than what ferraris use on their brembos where tits a fixed caliper, floating rotor setup is used.
If youre thinking "well its a ferrari, what do you expect?" you are dead wrong, all motorcycles use the same setup and in addition all aftermarket brembo kits use the same design. Other manufacturers such as audi, vw, infiniti that offer brembo upgrades on their vehicles also use the best method of floating rotors.
But our super-knowledge daimler designers decided to just add some fancy red/black/silver rotors on their srt8 models and just keep a fixed rotor so u get ur teeth kicked out of your jaw when you brake. Fixed rotors also warp rotors a lot quicker under heavy braking for obvious reasons.
Overall, chrysler brakes suck. Everyone knows it, including the dealers that sell them.
