StopTech Introduces Big Brake Kits for 2013 Scion FR-S

(Industry, Calif. – August 25, 2012) - StopTech®, the ultra-performance and racing brand from Centric Parts®, has introduced new StopTech Big Brake Kits for the hot new 2013 Scion FR-S. The new kits include two different front StopTech Big Brake Kits and one rear Big Brake Kit.

These big brake kits represent the ultimate brake system upgrade with stiffer calipers, larger rotors, higher friction pads, stainless steel braided lines and all of the necessary mounting hardware. The new StopTech Big Brake Kits supplement the StopTech Sport Brake Kits previously introduced for the FR-S in June. Unlike the big brake kits, the sport kits work with the factory calipers.

All StopTech High Performance Brake Kits provide shorter stopping distances, better brake modulation, firmer pedal feel and less brake fade for stronger, more reliable performance on and off the track.
