  • With EBC Redstuff Ceramic pads or EBC Yellowstuff Street / track pads
  • With or without Stainless Steel Brake Lines
  • Select accordingly.

Stoptech's SportStop one-piece direct replacement rotors fit stock calipers. Slotting helps wipe away the debris that forms between the pad and the disc, and adds more bite. The rotor finish helps prevent glazing of the pads and improves wet and dry braking performance. Durable black e-coating on the non-swept areas of the rotor to prevent unsightly corrosion. Quality is assured as the rotors are manufactured to meet or exceed all OE specifications.

  • Direct replacement, stock-sized rotors that fit stock calipers
  • 294 mm x 22 mm fronts
  • 259 mm x 10 mm rears
  • Increased initial bite response
  • Improved wet weather response
  • Reduced brake pad glazing
  • OE vane designs, including casting part line location
  • Machining designs engineered for optimal rotor integrity
  • Double-disc ground for a consistent friction surface and better pad bed-in
  • Mill-balanced for vibration-free performance
  • Black e-coating on non-friction surfaces provides lasting, attractive looks
  • Enhances open wheel appearance

EBC Redstuff Ceramic - 3000 Series Performance Brake Pads - For Highly Tuned Cars and Fast Street. This material is an Aramid fibre based brake compound enhanced with ceramic particles. Updated from the previous generation pre-ceramic compound, this material is light years ahead. It lasts longer, it brakes better and is quieter. Being a hard wearing pad, bed-in times can be as long as 1000 miles and drivers must be patient until the pad takes up the shape of their disc (brake rotor).

This is a truly impressive fast road pad for repeated heavy braking. It emits far less dust than semi-metallic pads and has been proven to stop a passenger car/sedan/sport compact/hot hatch 13 metres quicker than OEM pads from 100mph/160kph. Features EBC Brake-In surface coating which conditions rotor surface and accelerates pad bed-in. Nominal friction coefficient 0.5 with approx. 50% dust reduction compared to other pads.

  • High Initial Brake Effect
  • Strong Resistance To Fade Under Load
  • Reduced Rotor Wear
  • Low Dusting Of Wheels
  • Shimmed; Chamfered; And Slotted
  • Features EBC Brake-In Coating For Fast Break In
  • Zero Noise And Extended Lifetime
  • Accepts factory brake wear sensor

Yellowstuff Sport

EBC Yellowstuff is an aramid fibre based brake compound with a high brake effect from cold and is possibly one of the first ever compounds that can be used for street and track driving. These pads do require some warm-up but get even stronger under the heat of hard driving.

  • Our flagship top selling high friction brake pad for improved braking – UK made and a very high-end pad
  • Suitable for Fast streetcars, trucks and SUVs wherever a decent brake power upgrade is required.
  • Super quiet smooth braking under all conditions, fully shimmed slotted and chamfered construction
  • Excellent cold bite coupled with high-temperature fade resistance
  • Progressive braking with unparalleled pedal feel
  • Drastically reduced stopping distances compared to OE
  • Brake-In™ coating for accelerated pad bed in period
  • R90 approved thus legal for public highway use in European markets
  • For track use, Bluestuff may be a better choice due to bedding in speed which is much shorter with Blue
  • Made with Nucap NRS hooks on back plates to totally eliminate the chance of pad debond

 

StopTech Stainless Steel Brake Lines improve pedal feel and reduce the amount of time between applied pedal pressure and actual deceleration by preventing expansion, which stock rubber flex lines allow. This provides a quicker pedal response, and allows the driver to maintain consistent brake pressure and precision brake modulation.

StopTech brake lines consist of a Teflon® inner line that is 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. StopTech brake lines feature a Clear Abrasion Resistant Cover for maximum protection against chaffing

All StopTech Stainless Steel Brake Lines are DOT (United States Department of Transportation) compliant and 100% tested to a pressure of 4500 psi.

NOTE:
Brakes are a safety critical part of your vehicle and should be installed by a competent mechanic following vehicle manufacturers installation procedure. The surface of these brake pads is coated with a red coating known as BRAKE-IN. This coating helps your newly installed brake pads to 'seat' or bed-in quickly. However, pads should be used gently for the first 100 miles until optimum braking is observed. Being a hard wearing pad, bed-in times can be as long as 1000 miles and drivers must be patient until the pad takes up the shape of their disc (brake rotor).

Follow manufacturers instructions for 'bedding in' new pads.

If your Brake Wear Warning light is illuminated, you need to replace the Brake Wear Sensor OEM.

If you need to replace the set screw that holds the rotor in place, see NMB7603.

Brake fluid should be replaced every 2 years.

For High Performance Brake Fluids, see the following:

For replacement Brake Fluid, see Mini Cooper Brake Fluid Pentosin DOT4.
