All across the globe, Brembo Brakes is known as one of the best if not the very best options for aftermarket brake upgrades! Often supplying brake components the worlds most renowned auto brands such as Ferrari, BMW and others as such, Brembo has always been a step ahead in terms of braking performance!
Many brands such as Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Porsche, Ferrari and other makes are clients of the Brembo brand which goes to show the absolute power of Brembo’s brake kits! However, in terms of aftermarket upgrades, most users in the Malaysian market may have been misinformed with regards to the upgrading of brake systems and this article is aimed to clear up that misunderstanding.
Most individuals are more concerned with the replacement of their stock calipers with a Brembo made set of calipers, though deceived as an upgrade, it’s performance may never be as good as the replacement of a full set of discs and calipers as both parts are supposed to work hand-in-hand to deliver the very best stopping power. Adding to that, there are a handful of users which run generic brake pads which not only degrades stopping power but may also pose various risks and dangers as the brake pads may deteriorate rapidly with the increased power of Brembo’s calipers.
Why Should You Use Brembo’s GT Brake Kits?
Despite Brembo being the supplier of brake kits to various car makers, their line of GT Brake kits are designed to step up performance in terms of reduced brake fade and stopping power! Designed and tested specifically for track day enthusiasts and for drivers who demand the utmost performance from their cars, these kits offer superlative performance for both normal driving and demanding track day sessions.
Braking systems consisting of motorsports-derived components offering levels of technology and performance without par on the market today and embodying the purest expression of Brembo’s state-of-the-art technology. The kit consists of aluminium calipers with opposed pistons which, depending on the car model and in increasing order of performance, may be composite, monoblock or even billet monoblock components, combined with cross-drilled or slotted one-piece or composite oversized discs. Brembo kits combine the best solutions available to offer the perfect solution for the individual characteristics of each model.
The heart of the kit consists of aluminium calipers. These are also available as monoblock parts machined from a single billet of cast aluminium, which ensure outstanding rigidity and minimised deformation. The discs supplied in the kit, which may either be floating or one-piece, depending on the specific car model, feature an exclusive venting system that improves cooling capacity and increases resistance to cracking caused by thermal shock by over 40%. Cross-drilled and slotted finishes are designed and executed with meticulous precision. These holes or slots in the braking surface help dissipate heat and eliminate brake dust and gases. A set of high-performance brake pads with specific friction materials for each application, TÜV/DOT homologated metal-braided hoses, an adapter and high-quality fastener hardware complete the kit.
