    would love to swap mine out for some brembos. but i know the cost is about a couple of grand, plus you got to have rims that will clear them too.

    One of the cool things is that they come standard on an SRT.

    If you are gonna do a swap you might want to look into Wilwood or Bear first to see the price differences.

    I love my Brembo brakes!

    I had to get used to my 6 piston Brembos wanting to put me through the windshield but none the less, I replaced my Brembo pads after just a few thousand miles.

    One reason was the brake dust was a killer.

    The other reason was that I kept hearing about how those expensive 2 piece rotors wear out rather quickly with the OE Brembo pads.

    I've met a lot of people that have done it for the same reasons and many had recommended the PowerStop Z23's.

    I got the PowerStop Z26 Extreme Carbon Ceramic brake pads all around(total: $128) and I'm quite happy with them. Hardly anymore brake dust and they stop really good.

    Now I don't know how they compare for track racing but on the streets and at the drag strip they feel just as good to me. I feel the 15.4" rotors have a lot to do with it.

    The SRT's came with the 6 piston Brembo's
    The RT Scat Packs come standard with 4 piston Brembos. Unless you get the optional Dynamics Package or the Wide Body Package.

    As ZEN357 mentioned, I think the Wilwood or Bear are worth looking into also.
