Upgrading the brakes is sometimes overlooked when upgrading the power output of the car. Most new cars now come equipped standard with good brakes, some times adding better brake pads is all that is needed to make good standard brakes even better.When taking tings to extremes or for track day use something a little better is required. Porsche are probably the most well known for offering good brakes as standard on there road cars. Porsche brake calipers are actually made by Brembo for Porsche as are the Audi RS4 and RS6 brake calipers. Brembo themselves offer a range of after market brake products and kits, most notably is the grand turismo kit. Below are a few brake options if you don't see what you are looking for please contact us.

Brake pad upgrades

Brake upgrade consists of  EBC Yellow stuff pads

Although a full race material and capable of high temperature use with very good wear life, this new formulation sets a new trend in race type brake pad compounds. The bite from cold is superb which is uncommon with race materials (normally requiring warm-up) and makes this a pad which can be safely used on the road as well as on the race track. This new formulation was used by numerous championship race and rally drivers in 2004 and is truly a milestone in brake pad material development.

 High efficiency performance and race brakes for track & street use, fast to bed-in, great for street vehicle brake upgrade.

Not only a high friction pad but very resistant to heat and loads of heavy braking means that yellowstuff has been used with great success in race cars and on high speed Police Vehicle brakes alike.

EBC Yellowstuff pads are used on the UK Silverstone Race Track Drivers experience cars because of their high performance and longevity. Yellowstuff also claimed a win in the Targa rally and for two years running in the Brazil Mitsubishi off Road Team Desert Challenge

Because of its huge heat range , the applications where EBC Yellowstuff will deliver benefits range from fastest street use on higher horsepower cars to Trackday and Race use on most street based cars.

Brake Disk upgrades

 Brake upgrade consists of stage 1 with the adition of a better disks, in some cases a large disk can be fitted.

Every time you step on the brake pedal, your brake pads make contact with the brake rotor to slow your car down. The byproduct of that contact is heat, dust, and gas. NEUSPEED's cross-drilled rotors help dissipate this heat, dust and gas to reduce brake fade and cool down the rotor faster. NEUSPEED cross-drilled rotors are mill-balanced and each hole is ball chamfered to prevent cracking. All NEUSPEED rotors are cast to the original O.E. thickness for durability, and coated with a black-cadium finish to prevent internal corrosion.

Brembo GT Brake Kits

1. High Performance Friction Material: Aggressive pads that provide the highest level of performance.

2. Cross-Drilled or Slotted Discs: Clears gasses, cleans pads for better ?bite?.

3. Mounting Brackets and Assembly Hardware: Aircraft quality included and pre-torqued specifications.

4. Stainless Steel Braided Brake Line: DOT/TUV approved.

5. Floating Disc Mounting System with Billet Aluminium Hat: Reduce Unsprung Weight for better handling and reduces heat-related stress; increases brake performance and pedal feel.

6. Four, Six or Eight Piston Cast Aluminium Calipers: Provide maximum braking force without the flex of sliding calipers.

Comparison between floating 2-piece and 1-piece discs

The floating disc mounting system, due to the aluminium alloy hat, reduces the unsprung weight for better handling and reduces heat-related stress: the mounting system is designed to allow a specific amount of float in both radial and axial directions. Brembo has engineered special springs that are used on every other fastener in order to slightly preload the assembly. This has been done to prevent excessive noise from the system during street use. The one-piece discs (both for the Sport and GT lines) are specifically designed in the goose-neck area to minimize thermal distortion and thus disc warping under severe use conditions. The one-piece discs provide excellent stopping power ranging from everyday traffic conditions to more spirited high performance driving, and fit into the budget of any enthusiast.

Brake fluid upgrade


ATE Super Blue Affordable high performance brake fluids that have both a high dry boiling point (280 deg C) and a high wet boiling point (198 deg C), but without being excessively hygroscopic. What this really means is that these fluids do not readily absorb moisture like most high performance fluids. Moisture in your braking system can be costly requiring a complete braking system overhaul! A must for any car equipped with modern high friction brake pads.

If you're thinking of replacing your brake lines, pads or just want to get better performance out of your stock brake system, this is a great product to make bleeding your brakes worth your time. Don't replace your brake fluid with stock fluid if you have the opportunity to go to a performance brake fluid like the ATE Fluid.
