General Benefits of Big Brake Kits



Big Brake Kits give your vehicle that Supercar look and feel, and exceed stock performance in two areas. First, larger rotors increase heat capacity. Second, stiffer calipers and stainless steel lines reduce system compliance.

The key, however, 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) and you therefore create performance sacrifices. 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.

Advantages of StopTech over other brake upgrades:

  • Shorter Stopping Distances
  • Better Brake Modulation
  • Firmer Brake Pedal
  • Less Brake Fade

Feature Benefit Summary:

  • Balanced Brake Upgrades™ with optimum brake bias offer the shortest stopping distance with the best pedal feel
  • Our patented AeroRotors with the best airflow available result in better cooling, less fade and longer pad/rotor life
  • Stiffest aftermarket calipers with patented bridge result in better clamping under hard braking and less pad taper
  • Track testing of new applications ensures optimum performance


StopTech Sport Rotors

  • Track-proven, fade-free performance
  • Works with stock calipers and wheels
  • E-Coating for long lasting corrosion protection
  • Double disc ground surface eliminates run out
  • 100% Machined finishes for smooth braking
  • Symmetric vane castings for even heat transfer
  • Mill balanced to eliminate vibration
  • Available in drilled, slotted or drilled+slotted finishes

Slotting and/or cross-drilling helps wipe away the debris that forms between the pad and the disc, adds more bite, and can help the rear brakes to match the aesthetics of a front big brake kit. The rotor finish helps prevent glazing of the pads and improves wet and dry braking performance.


StopTech Sport Brake Pads

  • Formerly known as Street Performance Pads
  • High MOT to Eliminate Fade
  • Excellent Actuation, Modulation and Release
  • Positive Molded for Uniform Friction Material
  • Scorched to Raise Initial Cold Effectiveness
  • Para-Aramid Composites for Linear Response
  • Dyno Proven Performance and Service Life
  • Lab-Developed Formulas with Strong Initial Bite
  • Ideal for Autocross and Light Track Day Use

StopTech Sport Brake pads deliver superior braking performance for street driving and occasional track day use. The StopTech Sport Friction formulas were developed in Centric’s in-house labs to provide ideal street and track characteristics…and tested in one of four in-house brake dynamometers for maximum performance and service life.
