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

Reasons for a StopTech® Big Brake Kit

StopTech® Big Brake Kits are the ultimate high performance brake upgrades, giving vehicles that supercar performance, look and feel.

StopTech® Big Brake Kits exceed stock performance in two key areas: First, larger rotors increase heat capacity, allowing a driver to brake harder stop-after-stop with reduced chance of fade. Second, stiffer calipers and stainless steel lines reduce system compliance, providing consistent pedal feel and confidence-inspiring responsiveness.

The key, however, is to increase heat capacity and reduce compliance without upsetting a vehicle’s stock front-to-rear brake torque ratio. That is why StopTech® developed the Balanced Brake Upgrade® design philosophy, which precisely apportions front and rear braking resources while factoring in vehicle weight transfer under braking.

Every StopTech Balanced Big Brake Kit is engineered to produce that optimal balance using caliper bores and pistons specifically selected and tested for each vehicle application. This is what sets StopTech apart from off-the-shelf solutions.

In contrast, a brake upgrade that adds too much front torque (as many do), will reduce your car’s ability to maximize the traction available from all four tires, robbing you of performance. In addition, a system that uses too many pistons or pistons that are too large will make the brake pedal much more difficult to modulate, limiting a driver’s control of brake input.

stoptech-advantageFeatures and Benefits:

  • Balanced Brake Upgrades®with optimum brake bias offer 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.
  • StopTech® provides the stiffest fully-forged aftermarket calipers with patented, removable bridges that provide better clamping under hard braking and less pad taper.
  • StopTech® Big Brake Kit components are made in the USA in a 70,000 square foot California manufacturing, engineering, and R&D center.
