I have seen some brake dust in my time, but this sucker is hellacious! Where can I get some low-dust pads?

I wouldn't mess with it at all. Who wants to loose that incredible braking power this puppy has?!

Those ducts are only useful on the track. They don't do anything for street driving.
Maybe not the way you drive on the street :D

Guys, the brake dust has always been a problem with Vipers ( and Porsches and other fast vehicles ) as the tremendous speeds necessitate using a very high metallic content pad. These pads just years ago would have been considered a racing pad, and I will do some checking to see if EBC has a pad out for the truck yet. With the World's fastest truck and the monster rotors , you are going to have dust, and the EBCs will be fine for street driving , but they should never be used on a track. Hang in there, but it is a common problem with really fast machines.

Excess Brake Dust on SRT10's

Hello to all the SRT10 owners and enthusiasts,

I'm a new member here and I thought I would share my experiences on this issue. I remember this problem quite well from my 2001 Prowler. The brake dust problem was incredible on that vehicle. Anyway, the fix was to change to ceramic brake pads on the front and the problem vanished immediately. Also, the stopping power was not adversely affected by changing to these new pads. I'm sure with the very sizable caliper on the SRT10, a replacement set of pads is not yet available, but that would be the direction I would go when they are. Just my two cents worth on this issue.

Thanks,
Hemicuda.

Wheel Clearcoat / Brake Dust

The wheels are indeed clearcoated. The pad compound is rumored to be the same as the SRT-10 Viper, thus the high dust content. ;) -toohigh
