The Brembo Gran Turismo High Performance Braking System Offers Significant Advantages over the OE Manufacturer's System. Advantages Far Beyond What's Simply Known as "Big Brakes"
As the braking system's primary function is to dissipate heat, larger, more sophisticated discs are used in order to increase the fade resistance of the system. These discs are directionally vented for enhanced cooling, as well as drilled or slotted for improved consistency, continuously cleaning and refreshing the pad surface.
Brembo High Performance GT Systems are designed to give you the advanced technology behind Brembo racing systems without compromising the driveability and comfort features of an OE Brembo system.
Non-Brembo OE Systems - Non-Brembo OE systems typically use a heavy, low-grade iron rotor and a flexible sliding caliper that severely limit performance.
Brembo OE Systems - Brembo OE systems are superior to non-Brembo OE systems by the use of opposed, multi-piston aluminum fixed mount calipers, and high carbon discs.
Brembo GT - GT systems are revolutionary in their design and performance, and no other braking company has been able to offer this level of performance, range of configurations, and sheer number of applications. The GT/GT-R systems exemplify Brembo's dominance as a world leader in high performance braking as an OEM supplier to a winning partner in motorsports.
OPTIMUM BRAKE BALANCE
The technology and performance of a Brembo brake system is unrivaled by any other product on the market. Each system is designed vehicle specific for maximum performance and "optimum brake balance". Each system is fully compatible with ABS and traction control systems.
Brembo engineers design each brake upgrade specifically for your vehicle and driving conditions. Optimum brake balance is achieved by combining Brembo's thorough knowledge of OEM braking systems and use of an unlimited range of caliper, piston, and disc combinations. Brembo brake upgrades are easy to install and designed to work seamlessly with your vehicle’s stock master cylinder, ABS, and traction control system.
THE BREMBO DIFFERENCE: Improved pedal feel, modulation, and control of braking performance from initial application through ABS intervention.
Most OE calipers are of a sliding design, with piston(s) only located on the inboard side of the disc. While this type of caliper is inexpensive to manufacture, it is generally extremely heavy, and inherently flexible under braking, which significantly degrades performance. Conversely, Brembo's calipers are a fixed radial or axial mount design with opposed pistons and constructed from aluminum alloy. Despite being much larger and many times stiffer than the sliding OE caliper, they are also much lighter which benefits overall vehicle dynamics.
The caliper body has been designed to be as light as possible while meeting stiffness criteria. Brembo Calipers utilize Monobloc design: a single integral unit or 1-piece design that optimizes the ratio between mechanical stiffness and weight. Brembo calipers are equipped with unique pad retaining features and sequential piston bores in order to provide even pad wear and optimum performance.
Brembo calipers incorporate a twin seal design that restricts dirt and debris from entering the caliper body and contaminating the brake fluid. This extends caliper life by protecting the pistons and internal pressure seals and prevents the need for maintenance. Brembo calipers undergo a strict homologation process which exceeds the requirements set by OEM manufacturers.
Through Brembo's comprehensive understanding of materials and advanced design capabilities, Brembo's 2-piece discs are designed to be as lightweight as possible without compromising strength or longevity. Achieving this level of design is a capability that sets Brembo apart.
Superior metallurgy and exceptional engineering allow Brembo discs to exceed in the most demanding conditions. Their advanced cast iron alloy lasts longer than any disc in the high performance and racing market.
Brembo's properitary floating hardware system permits a specific amount of radial and axial float which allows the disc to grow independent from the bell, averting thermal distortion when subjected to extreme temperatures. It also preloads the disc assembly to prevent premature wear and eliminate noise during street use.
HIGH PERFORMANCE BRAKE PADS
Each Brembo system is delivered with preloaded calipers. Brake pads are selected vehicle specific for high performance.
Quick Release Pad Retaining System: Incorporates anti-rattle feature (pictured) to eliminate noise and is designed for quick and easy pad changes.
CALIPER MOUNTING BRACKETS
All Brembo caliper mounting brackets are designed vehicle and system specific. They are precision milled from superior quality billet materials to ensure a precise fit and meet the strength requirements of high performance driving conditions. Brembo brackets are also further analyzed and tested to ensure fatigue life.
Brembo caliper mounting brackets are also anodized to provide an attractive finish. Each Brembo system includes all necessary hardware for ease of installation (please read instructions prior to installation).
Part numbers are clearly laser etched along with an unique serial number (S/N) for each part. Pictured, are a few examples of axial and radial mount bracket designs.
GOODRIDGE BRAKE LINES
Goodridge High Performance Brakeline race-bred street brake lines are constructed from the finest quality hose, consisting of a PTFE inner hose covered by braided stainless steel. In addition to providing a more responsive and firm brake pedal by eliminating the "spongy" feel that often accompanies stock rubber brake lines, High Performance Brakelines are abrasion and corrosion resistant to stay good looking for a long time to come.
Goodridge is the leading line supplier to OE manufacturers and championship winning race teams worldwide. With the tightest bend radius in the industry and the lowest rate of expansion, you can be assured that every inch of pressure from the pedal is transfered directly to where it counts - the caliper. Goodridge is the only brake hose system approved for use in every country in the world and it's guaranteed for life.
