StopTech Front 13 Inch 4 Piston Big Brake Kit
StopTech Big Brake Kits give your vehicle that Supercar look and feel, and exceed stock brake system performance in two areas. First, larger rotors increase heat capacity. A brake system's biggest enemy is heat. A brake system with inadequate heat capacity will overheat leading to brake fade, increased stopping distances, and possible failure. Second, stiffer calipers and stainless steel lines reduce system compliance and increase initial bite and pedal feedback.
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 four tires (even on ABS equipped cars) therefore sacrificing performance.
In addition, too many pistons or pistons that are too large will make the brake pedal much more difficult to modulate, which limits a driver's control of brake input on the race track.
StopTech's brake kits offer many advantages over stock systems, such as:
- Shorter Stopping Distances
- Better Brake Modulation
- Firmer Brake Pedal feel
- Less Brake Fade
- Increased pedal feedback
StopTech Big Brake Kits include the following:
- 2 Piece Floating directional AeroRoters
- Stainless Steel Brake Lines
- Street performance pads
- Caliper mounting Brackets
Please remember that unless otherwise noted Big Brake kits will not clear stock wheels.
Drilled brake rotors increase surface area of the brake rotor, allowing better airflow and cooling during while the brake system is stressed, decreasing brake fade. Drilled rotors also give your vehicle a unique exotic look. Slotted rotors follow the same principle. Grooves machined into the rotor surface allow hot gas, water, and debris to escape ensuring proper contact in extreme situations as well as increasing the initial bite of the brake system.
StopTech Big Brake Kit Calipers are available painted Red, Black, Silver, Blue, Yellow or Gold. Please specify rotor type and color upon ordering.
