Celica Binders
Stoptech's brake upgrade kit for the Celica GT-S includes a set of 328mm x 28mm high-performance AeroRotors(tm) with 7075 T-6 billet aluminum hats, a set of four piston high-performance ST40 calipers, Celica GT-S caliper adapter brackets, high-performance brake pads and front stainless steel braided brake lines. The Stoptech Celica GT-S kit is a direct bolt on replacement of the stock front system with no modifications required to the cars chassis or suspension.

Incorporating a unique patent pending directional vane design, the two-piece AeroRotors provide dramatically improved induced airflow (more than 60 percent) over the straight vane stock rotor.

Four-Piston Power
Stillen's four-piston big brake systems provide enhanced stopping power for performance street cars. Stillen has four-piston AP Racing applications for more than 35 vehicles from Japanese, European and domestic car makers, with many new kits in the R&D pipeline. The latest four-piston kit is for the Lexus IS 300 and Stillen will gladly develop custom applications to meet your needs.

S4 Stopping Power
Stoptech has announced its upgrade kit for the popular 2000 Bi-Turbo Audi S4 sedans. The new front brake system includes a set of 332mm high-performance AeroRotors(tm) with 7075 T-6 billet aluminum hats, a set of four-piston high-performance ST40 calipers, Audi S4 caliper adaptear brackets, high-performance brake pads and front stainless-steel braided brake lines. The Stoptech Audi S-4 kit is a direct bolt-on replacement of the stock front system with no modifications required to the cars chassis or suspension. It fits inside the Stock Audi S-4 Bi-turbo 17-inch wheels.

Incorporating a unique patent pending directional vane design, the two-piece AeroRotors provide dramatically improved induced airflow (more than 60 percent) over the straight vane stock rotor. Higher induced airflow means cooler operating temperatures under normal and aggressive driving conditions. Better cooling means longer pad and rotor life and a brake system that dramatically reduces fade. AeroRotor features a proprietary cast iron formula that resists cracking and fatigue. The two-piece AeroRotor includes a floating hat system that resists warping during heating and cooling cycles.

The ST40 caliper features a patent pending bridge that makes the caliper up to three times stiffer than similar designs. The ST-40 caliper is available with eight different piston sizes thus allowing selection of an Application Specific differential piston set matched to the Audi master cylinder. By designing the optimum piston size combination for the Audi S4 master cylinder the Stoptech brake upgrade kit enables better modulation of the brakes than competitive systems.

Late Braking News
Baer's new EradiSpeed(tm) rotors are direct replacement "Performance Rotors" for OEM applications, but with a significant twist. Cast from a high friction iron alloy, EradiSpeed(tm) units are designed with more mass for heat absorption in the "fire-path," (where the pad directly contacts the rotor), are all directionally ventilated and feature billet or forged aluminum centers which reduce overall rotor weight. EradiSpeed rotor units are also "cosmetically enhanced" with cross-drilled, slotted and zinc washed surfaces, but with a more durable rotor and less unsprung weight, they are more than just another pretty face

Initially available for popular domestic performance cars including the current Cobra, Viper and Corvette, as well as rear drive muscle cars from the '60s Chevelles and Road Runners, to '90s Impala SS applications, EradiSpeed rotors are in development for light trucks, European and Japanese applications as well.
