STOPTECH EXPANDS TROPHY SPORT BIG BRAKE KIT PROGRAM
Los Angeles (November 4, 2010) - StopTech, a leading innovator of world-class brake components and systems for production-based racing cars and high performance vehicles, is expanding the company's popular Trophy Sport line of Big Brake Kits (BBKs) to cover a full range of performance vehicles. StopTech Trophy Sport Big Brake Kits perform under heavy track day conditions yet can be driven as daily transportation without the increased maintenance requirements associated with dedicated racing components.
StopTech introduced the Trophy Sport Big Brake Kit in 2009 for selected high-performance production cars including Porsche, BMW, and Corvette. Now as a full product line from StopTech, the ultra-performance division of Centric Parts, Trophy Sport BBKs are available for any vehicle application covered by StopTech's original Big Brake Kits. This represents a complete lineup of performance vehicles from a wide range of car manufacturers including Audi, Cadillac, Toyota, Acura, Infiniti, Dodge and Ferrari.
"StopTech's limited rollout of the Trophy Sport Big Brake Kit has been so successful that we are compelled to offer Trophy Sport BBK as an upgrade to any original StopTech Big Brake Kit," points out Dan Lelchuk, President of Centric Parts. "The StopTech Trophy Sport Big Brake Kit's ability to deliver outstanding performance on the track and still roll onto the street really hits the sweet spot in the performance brake aftermarket."
Trophy Sport Big Brake Kits from StopTech, the ultra-performance division of Centric Parts, feature the four or six-piston Trophy ultra-lightweight caliper with patented bridge. StopTech Trophy calipers are engineered to provide up to a 17% reduction in weight from standard StopTech ST calipers, depending on application, without sacrificing stiffness or performance. These calipers feature silicone rubber dust seals around each piston to prevent debris from damaging internal features.
The StopTech Trophy Sport calipers and AeroHats use an exclusive, high-temperature “natural” finish that is impervious to color change at high temperatures experienced in track driving. Laser-engraved logos on the hat edge further distinguish Trophy Sport Big Brake Kits from everyday upgrades. The finish combines with the AeroRotor for an attractive and attention getting in-wheel presentation. The kits also include billet aluminum mounting brackets with stainless steel caliper studs and DOT-compliant stainless steel braided brake lines. All StopTech Big Brake Kits provide larger rotors that increase heat capacity and dissipation coupled with stiffer calipers and stainless steel lines that reduce system compliance. The results are shorter stopping distances, better brake modulation, firmer pedal feel and less brake fade, resulting in stronger, more reliable performance.
The StopTech Trophy Sport Big Brake Kit is a direct descendant of the StopTech Trophy Big Brake Kit, which is the top of the line track-only kit from StopTech that has fueled scores of podium visits for race teams since being introduced two years ago.
StopTech will be exhibiting original, Trophy and Trophy Sport Big Brake Kits at the 2010 SEMA Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center from November 2-5 at booth #22761.
