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.
MINI recommends the brake fluid be replaced every 2 years. See ATE Super Blue for replacement brake fluid. ATE Super Blue is a high quality performance fluid that will last much longer than the standard DOT4 fluid. This is an ABS friendly fluid.

StopTech Brake Pads, Rotors and Big Brake Kits
Big Brake Upgrade kit are not just for MINI Cooper racers! The benefits for the street MINI Cooper of a big brake upgrade kit are firmer pedal, quicker response time, reduced brake fade and thus much safer driving. Most people own a MINI Cooper because they are fun to drive, a Big Brake Upgrade from Stoptech simply will increase your fun factor while at the same time keeping you safe.
A solidly mounted, multi piston caliper as found on this Big Brake Kit form Stoptech will improve one of the several factors that effect stopping distance. From the time you hit the pedal until you get full braking effect from your pads will be decreased with this kit. And the increased size of the pads and rotors will decrease the effective stopping distance with reduced fade and higher coefficient of friction.
The big brake kit from are designed to maintain the optimum front to rear brake balance to provide the shortest possible stopping distance and will not effect your ABS braking system.
