StopTech Big Brake Kits

StopTech Big Brake Kits
Balanced Brake Upgrades™ for your Street & Track Day Vehicle

StopTech is the leading manufacturer and supplier of high performance brake components and systems.  Driven by their passion for racing and high performance vehicles, StopTech engineers and manufactures high performance brake upgrade systems for the racing and performance street markets.

StopTech Big Brake Kits feature:


  • Floating, directional AeroRotors® with billet aluminum directional AeroHat™
  • Billet aluminum mounting brackets with stainless steel studs
  • DOT-compliant stainless steel braided Teflon® brake lines
  • High-performance street pads
  • Forged or squeeze-forged, high-performance patented calipers

StopTech Big Brake Kits give your vehicle that supercar look and feel and exceed stock performance in two areas.  First, larger rotors increase heat capacity and the system's ability to dissipate heat.  Second, stiffer calipers and stainless steel lines reduce system compliance, providing a firmer brake pedal and more precise modulation.  All this adds up to significant benefits:

  • shorter stopping distances
  • better brake modulation
  • firmer brake pedal
  • less brake fade

StopTech Big Brake Kit advantages:

  • Balanced Brake Upgrades™ – provide optimum brake bias for the shortest stopping distance with the best pedal feel
  • Patented AeroRotors® – offer the best airflow available for better cooling, less fade and longer rotor and pad life
  • Stiffest aftermarket calipers with patented bridge – for better clamping under hard braking and less pad taper
  • Rigorous track testing – to ensure optimum performance and compatibility with all ABS and vehicle dynamic control systems

For Balanced Brake Upgrades™ the key is to increase heat capacity and reduce compliance without upsetting the stock front to rear brake torque ratio.  If the brake upgrade you select adds too much front torque (as many do), you reduce your car's ability to utilize the tractive capacity of all of the tires to the maximum practical extent (even on ABS-equipped cars) thereby sacrificing performance.  Additionally, too many pistons or pistons that are too large will make the brake pedal more difficult to modulate limiting a driver's control of brake input on the race track.  StopTech is the first aftermarket brake company to offer front Balanced Brake Upgrades™ engineered to dramatically improve overall braking performance while remaining compatible with the stock original equipment rear brakes.  This has significantly advanced the state of art of aftermarket brake upgrades.

Brembo Gran Turismo Brake System Catalog / Application List — pricing reflects MSRP — call 1-800-214-4034 or 1-607-264-2619 for special pricing.


Brembo Gran Turismo Brake System advantages:

  • Proven on-track performance
  • Disperses gases, cleans pads for better “bite”
  • Reduces “unsprung weight” for better handling
  • Provides maximum braking force without the flex of sliding calipers
  • Reduces heat-related stress, increases brake performance and pedal feel
  • Aggressive pads that last longer and provide the highest level of performance

Brembo Gran Turismo Brake Systems
have been developed specifically to replace the vehicle’s front brakes (due to the higher braking requirements encountered there); rear brake systems are offered for select applications.  For vehicles that do not have a Gran Turismo System for the rear axle, Brembo suggests their Sport Brake Rotors – available as cross-drilled or slotted – to provide a matched appearance on all four wheels of your vehicle. The Sport Brake Rotors are 1-piece direct replacement brake rotors manufactured as solid or vented according to original equipment specifications.

Wheel size and wheel clearance are important considerations when upgrading your brake system.  In most cases, the Gran Turismo Brake System’s larger calipers and oversized brake discs require the use of custom aftermarket wheels that provide the appropriate brake clearance.  Call Brakewarehouse at 1-800-214-4034 for templates and instructions.

Rotora High Performance Brake Systems

Rotora High Performance Brake Systems

Form Follows Function

Made of billet aluminum alloy and CNC-machined to ensure the highest quality, Rotora's High Performance Brake Systems enable superior brake modulation while improving overall pedal feel to ensure equal distribution of weight transfer when braking.  To achieve this proportional front-to-rear brake bias, Rotora’s opposing piston calipers are fine tuned by increasing the clamp load to the optimal level while utilizing the stock master cylinder to retain overall front-to-rear brake bias.  Rotora’s full big brake system design delivers excellent initial bite, exceptional modulation and consistent pedal feel for street and track use applications.

All systems are ABS compatible and direct bolt on replacement with minimal modifications required.





COMPONENTS/FEATURES:

  • Rotora billet aluminum alloy 2, 4, 6, 8 or 12-piston racing calipers with sequentially-sized piston bore sizes engineered to each specific vehicle.
  • Rotora billet aluminum hat with “floating” disc assembly to reduce heat-related stress and unsprung weight.
  • Rotora one-piece vented or two-piece heat-treated directional vane disc system to improve airflow/cooling under severe braking.  Slotted or drilled & slotted oversize discs up to 16” (405mm) to ensure equal heat dissipation and increase thermal capacity while relieving the disc and brake pad surface free of excess debris.
  • Rotora ceramic formulated pads designed for extreme street and track applications with high co-efficient of friction and high-temperature fade resistance.
  • Rotora DOT-compliant stainless steel braided brake lines to improve stiffer pedal feel and prevent brake hose expansion.
  • Rotora carbon steel (SC45) mounting brackets (depending on application) and hardware.

OPTIONAL:

  • Standard Caliper Colors: red or metallic blue.
  • Custom Caliper Colors: dark blue, chrome, gunmetal, gold, silver, black or yellow (lead time of 60 days depending on application).
  • Ceramic Pads: Rotora offers a wide range of ceramic compound pad grades. Refer to Rotora Brake Pads to assist in selection.
  • Disc Type: plain, slotted or drilled & slotted oversized discs. Refer to Rotora Brake Discs to assist in selection.


See the Rotora Brake Systems webpage for more details.

SportStop High Performance Brake Systems

SportStop High Performance Brake Systems
Stage 1 & Stage 2 Brake Upgrade Kits

SportStop Stage 1 Brake Upgrade Kits feature:

  • Street Performance Brake Pads for Front & Rear
  • StopTech Stainless Steel Brake Lines for Front & Rear
  • Motul RBF600 Brake Fluid

SportStop Stage 1 Brake Upgrade Kit

SportStop Stage 1 Brake Upgrade Kits
are a low-cost, high-value step up from original equipment parts.  Stainless steel brake lines improve pedal feel and reduce the time between applied pedal pressure and actual deceleration by reducing the expansion allowed by stock rubber flex lines.  High-performance front and rear street pads provide greater resistance to fade, higher maximum operating temperature and better initial bite, to allow consistent deep braking into corners.  Three bottles of Motul RBF600 brake fluid increase both wet and dry boiling points and virtually prevent boiling even under the most severe operating conditions. 

SportStop Stage 1 Kits are good for street and autocross.  They are not intended for extended track sessions.

SportStop Stage 2 Brake Upgrade Kits feature:

  • SportStop Stage 1 Brake Upgrade Kit
  • Stock-sized SportStop Rotors — available in slotted, drilled or drilled/slotted

SportStop Stage 2 Brake Upgrade Kit

SportStop Stage 2 Brake Upgrade Kits
include everything in a Stage 1 Kit plus slotted, drilled or drilled/slotted stock-size SportStop rotors for both front and rear axles.  Drilled rotors can look great behind a new set of custom wheels, while slotted rotors are more durable under severe use.  Slotted or drilled rotors prevent glazing of the brake pads, increase effective coefficient of friction between the pads and rotors and improve wet and dry braking performance.  SportStop rotor have a durable black coating on the non-swept areas of the rotor to prevent unsightly corrosion and quality is assured as the rotors are manufactured to meet or exceed all OE specifications.

SportStop Stage 2 Kits are good for street and autocross.  They are not intended for extended track sessions.

To order, call Brakewarehouse at 1-800-214-4034 for pricing & availability.
