* Direct replacement, stock-sized rotors that fit stock calipers
* Increased initial bite response
* Improved wet weather response
* Reduced brake pad glazing
* 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
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. Actual finish may vary depending on supplier. Quality is assured as the rotors are manufactured to meet or exceed all OE specifications.
If your brake wear warning light is illumninated, see replacement sensors.
Brake fluid should be replaced every 2 years. See ATE Performance Brake Fluid for replacement brake fluid. ATE Type 200 Amber is a high quality performance fluid that will last much longer than the standard DOT4 fluid. This is an ABS friendly fluid.
ATE® Type 200 Amber Fluid has a dry boiling point of 536F and a wet boiling point of 396F which far exceeds standard brake fluids meeting the DOT 4 requirements. This fluid is NOT SILICONE and is compatible with conventional brake fluid. 100% synthetic fluid is specifically designed to resist the high temperatures of racing brakes and yet very suitable for daily driving.
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.
