COVID-19 UPDATE FROM OUR CEO
STOPTECH BRINGS VOLKSWAGEN GOLF GTI 2.0T OWNERS TO A STOP
Los Angeles (September 02, 2008) - StopTech, a leading manufacturer, supplier and innovator of world class brake components and brake systems for production-based race cars and high performance vehicles on the street and track, today announced the release of a 355mm front Big Brake Kit (BBK) upgrade for owners of the Volkswagen GTI MkV. This new product expands StopTech's offering for the car, which already included a 328mm front BBK.
The kit for the GTI MkV, model years 2006 through 2008, comes with a pair of forged, four piston, patented ST-40 calipers, slotted or drilled floating directional 355x32 AeroRotors with billet aluminum AeroHats, billet aluminum mounting brackets, DOT-compliant stainless steel braided Teflon brake lines, and high performance street pads.
StopTech's BBKs provide shorter stopping distances, better brake modulation, firmer pedal feel and less brake fade resulting in stronger, more reliable performance. StopTech's BBKs achieve this through larger rotors that increase heat capacity and dissipation coupled with stiffer calipers and stainless steel lines that reduce system compliance.
StopTech was the first to offer balanced brake upgrades for production cars and remains the worldwide leader with over 600 platform offerings to dramatically improve overall braking performance. StopTech's industry leading technologies and materials, from rock solid calipers to ingeniously efficient heat handling rotors, result in shorter stopping distances, better brake modulation, and less brake fade. StopTech products can be purchased through automotive aftermarket parts stores, suppliers and online retailers. Check with retailers for pricing.
