Carson, CA, United States, 2011/08/04 - StopTech, the ultra performance division of Centric Parts, introduces new StopTech Sport Kits, which include direct replacement OE diameter rotors at all four corners, performance brake pads (front & rear)and stainless steel brake lines all around.
StopTech, the ultra performance division of Centric Parts, is today announcing the launch of their new Sport Kits. The StopTech Sport Kits are an excellent choice for the enthusiast whose rotors are nearing the end of their service life. Clearly labeled for front and rear axles, the Sport Kits simplify the brake upgrade process for customers looking for improved braking performance through a StopTech Balanced Brake Upgrade®.
StopTech Sport Kits are available for a number of automotive applications and include direct replacement OE diameter rotors at all four corners, performance brake pads (front & rear) and stainless steel brake lines all around.
Available in slotted, drilled, and slotted+drilled varieties, StopTech rotors offer an eye-catching look and provide significant performance gains, especially under repeated, higher thermal loads. Stainless steel lines provide immediate response to brake pedal input and give better feedback. Performance brake pads offer improved stopping power in all conditions with less dust than other pads.
Quality is assured as all components are manufactured to meet or exceed all OE specifications. StopTech Sport Kits (stoptech.com) include all hardware needed for a complete job:
• Front and rear StopTech SportStop or Power Slot Brake Rotors (depending on application);
• Front and rear StopTech Stainless Steel Brake Lines;
• Front and rear StopTech Street Performance Brake Pads.
StopTech Sport Kit Brake Rotors
StopTech Sport Kit brake rotors are OEM diameter for a perfect replacement fit and offer OE or improved vane design where possible. StopTech Sport Kit rotors are slotted, drilled or slotted and drilled for improved cooling, fade resistance and quicker wet weather response. The rotors are double disc ground for a consistent friction surface with improved bed-in and are mill balanced for zero vibration.
Benefits of StopTech Brake Rotors:
• Improved thermal capabilities;
• Faster heat dissipation;
• Quicker rain response;
• Quiet operation;
• Longer life;
• Protective black e-coating.
StopTech Stainless Steel Brake Lines
StopTech Stainless Steel Brake Lines provide a quicker pedal response, maintaining consistent brake pressure and precision brake modulation, especially during threshold braking. StopTech is a registered brake line manufacturer with the United States DOT and all StopTech Stainless Steel Brake Lines are manufactured to meet DOT FMVSS 106 Compliance Standards. StopTech Stainless steel lines also meet or exceed applicable international and EU standards. Every line is 100% tested in-house to a pressure of 4,500 PSI. StopTech brake lines consist of a Teflon® inner line, which is then covered with a layer of stainless steel woven braid. The Teflon tube is very resistant to expansion under pressure and will not degrade from exposure to brake fluid. The stainless steel braid provides support for the Teflon and the weave is extremely durable against incidental impact and abrasion. Finally, StopTech brake lines are coated with a clear abrasion resistant cover for maximum protection against chaffing and strain relief devices reinforce end fittings. All necessary brackets and fasteners are included with each line kit.
Advantages of StopTech Brake Lines:
• StopTech Stainless Steel Lines comply with EU and FMVSS 106 safety standards
• Includes all necessary hardware for safe and proper installation
• StopTech is a U.S. DOT registered brake line manufacturer
• Quicker response time shortens stopping distances
• Strain relief devices reinforce end fittings
• Improved pedal feel and modulation
• 100% Tested to 4,500 PSI
• Firmer Pedal Feel
StopTech Street Performance Brake Pads
StopTech Street Performance Brake Pads are engineered to meet the demands of high performance driving while maintaining the refinement and comfort expected in everyday driving conditions. StopTech Brake pads combine the benefits of premium street brake pads with aggressive friction formulas suitable for track day and autocross use. Para-aramid composites are specially formulated to provide linear braking response at both cold and hot temperatures, delivering optimum stopping performance over a wide range of driving conditions. The high temperature brake pad compound, coupled with the scorching process used during manufacture ensures predictable and consistent performance across the entire operating temperature range. StopTech's positive mold manufacturing process assures uniform friction material density, delivering even pad wear with consistent pedal feel and performance throughout the life of the pads. The low dust formulation is rotor friendly and leaves wheels cleaner than both OEM and many high performance pads. StopTech Street Performance Pads have precision cut backing plates to fit accurately in OEM calipers and OE style shims reduce or eliminate noise caused by pad vibration.
Benefits of StopTech Brake Pads:
• Wide operating temperature range improves stopping power hot or cold
• Consistent and predictable stopping performance
• Extended brake disc life
• Longer brake pad life
• Reduced brake dust
• No brake squeal
Brake fluid is not included with the StopTech Sport Kits.
