StopTech: Balanced Brake Upgrades for your Street and Track Day Car
StopTech Big Brake Kits are carefully engineered to keep an optimal front to rear brake bias. Why does brake bias matter? On the race track, outbraking your opponent by just two feet every lap might not sound like much, but over the course of a twenty lap sprint race it can result in a three to four car length advantage at the checkered flag. To the racer, decreased braking distance is the same as free horsepower.
Street drivers also need to take heed of bias, as the effects of improper bias not only result in sub-optimal stopping distances but can also include sub-optimal brake pad life (too much front bias) and/or premature ABS activations. For example, if a car is too heavily front-biased in its typical operating deceleration range, it will wear front brake pads more quickly due to the fact that the rear brakes are not contributing as much as they could be.
Each StopTech Big Brake Kit consists of:
