Default Q: Saleen recall Alcon upgrade?

What brakes were recalled years ago (if any) from Saleen / Ford on the XP8?

We have an XP8 with the Saleen brakes. I have heard rumors of weak structure or brackets I guess.

Any info?

Due to cheap, inferior aluminum caliper mounting brackets, Saleen recalled and refunded all XP8 13" front Saleen/Alcon brake factory optional package owners. Some owners have replacement "steel" caliper mounting brackets which are safe and fine. Best to check for cracking in the mounting bracket.

My old 2000 XP8 was one where the original owner had a mounting bracket failure on I-70 at 80 mph. Was a mess but they survived the incident. Just be safe out there!
