Slots create an escape route for debris, dust, gases, and water Slots reduce stopping distances in wet weather Slots clean and de-glaze pad surface for optimum pad coefficient of friction Slots help to increase pad bite and improve air circulation Vented type of rotors offers much faster heat dissipation Multi-piston calipers provide clamping force on both sides of the rotor at the same time and uniformly transfer braking force to the brake pads Caliper pistons are hollow to save weight Aluminum caliper body allows for exceptional light weight (up to 40% of weight savings) and ensures superior corrosion resistance Caliper heat-resistant coating prevent cracking and fading Fixed calipers create friction from the brake pads on both sides of the rotor at minimum time interval
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.
