Take off brake upgrade

Shelby does take off blowers and hoods etc... Anyone know of take off brake system upgrade for sale that fits the gt . Calipers , rotors. Would the gt500 system fit? I read something about roush doing something like it but can't find any info. With the new sc i have found myself in need of more stopping power

Pretty sure the 2011+ take offs offer larger rotors but use the same calipers/pads as our cars (though the larger rotor does improve braking a bit and stays cooler).

You can also use GT500 take offs to get improved rotors/calipers/pads/etc.

In either case you will need new wheels if you have factory 17s, and I'm not sure if the factory 18s clear the larger brakes either.
