Is that a guess or a fact? I wasn't able to find anything on this for the MME.
Don't know, but they certainly look to be a visual match to all the test mules we've seen. I've been wondering about those piston sleeves as I've not noticed them on other calipers before.

The front brake rotors & calipers do appear to be quite sizable.

Not sure if that's right. But they look pretty big on the front.
Exactly, no doubt that spec sheet is possibly incorrect, at this point, NO ONE, can say for sure since there are ZERO production units available, and for someone to claim 10 in. (based on a pic of the rear wheels) and flaws on a car not available in production guise yet is asinine.

My opinion - the rotors im betting Ford will equip the Mach E with will be 13 - 14 in. The Ruby Red pics in this thread, front calipers appears to be at min 2 piston and rears are single thus why rotors appear "small".

For reference here are C6 Z51 stock brakes and calipers (Fr: wheels = 18' and R: = 19'. Brakes = Fr: 13.4 w/ 2 piston calipers and R: 13 w/ single piston calipers)

I hope this is addressed. I think about the first year Edge, 2007 I think, and it was widely known the brakes were inadequate. I bought the 2008, which I still have, and it had a number of improvements, most notably, the brakes. So, this topic has me concerned because Ford has blown the initial brake system on a new vehicle before.

Riddle me this: what happens when ten inch rear rotors fade and your "13 - 14 in" front rotors are fully effective? Do you know anything at all about brakes, anything? And before you jump in with "The fronts do most of the work." that still won't account for the size difference in rotors you claim.

I'm not criticizing production models. I'm criticizing this particular specimen. I'm not "claiming" 10" rear rotors, I measured them. If I'm wrong, show me your measurements rather than your rants. I've been wrong before; I'll be wrong again. Guess what? You too. We learn by discussion, not by screaming like a little baby when someone disagrees with us.

No one will be more thrilled than me if the production Mach-e features 13.4" front and 13" rear rotors. Unlike some fan boys who will drool over anything, I want to see a Mach-e which will be successful and lead the way into Ford's electric future.

Nak - stop being a jerk. Apparently your a brake expert, fine. To me, your a random stranger on the internet. I (and I assume most people here) are going to trust Ford's engineers over a random stranger. You can make your arguments without your inflammatory language.

Sorry zhackwyatt, I merely responded in kind to syNRG's post. I feel no need to be polite to someone who is being an ass to me, especially when the offending poster rants about subjects they clearly have zero actual knowledge.

I make no claim to being an expert on brakes, but I am at least somewhat knowledgeable. I also can recognize the impossibility of two objects occupying the same space at the same time, something lost on certain other posters.

EDITED TO ADD: In retrospect, there is no need to escalate. I edited both posts to limit my lack of politeness to the same lack synRG showed me.
