Centric Parts Announces Changes to StopTech and Power Slot Sport Rotor Program

 

(Industry, Calif. – February 19, 2013) - Centric Parts®, a leading supplier and manufacturer of aftermarket brake and clutch components, has announced a name change in its performance product lineup for 2013. In an effort to streamline its performance product range, the former Power Slot® and SportStop® direct-replacement, one-piece rotors will henceforth be known instead as StopTech® Sport Rotors.

 

Effective immediately, this change in no way affects orders. Centric will continue to use the same product numbering that is shown in existing catalogs and online databases. The 126, 127 and 128 prefixes will be retained for the range of slotted, drilled+slotted and drilled performance upgrade rotors respectively. 

 

“While continuing to represent the absolute best aftermarket performance upgrade rotor options around, the new ‘StopTech Sport Rotors’ name more easily identifies their function, and more closely aligns them with the company’s other performance upgrade products,” according to Mark Cornwell, Vice President Performance Sales. “This includes the StopTech Sport Kits, which feature the StopTech Sport Rotors, StopTech braided stainless steel brake lines and StopTech Street Performance pads.”

 

StopTech Sport Rotors are direct replacement discs for factory brake systems and stock calipers. They offer several advantages the competition doesn't offer:

  • Direct replacement for factory brake rotor
  • Unique slotting and/or cross-drilling to aid heat and brake dust dispersal 
  • Black e-coating for added protection from corrosion
  • Factory cooling vane design or directional vanes for improved cooling
  • High Carbon metallurgy (in most applications) for quieter operation, better crack resistance and increased performance

 

All kits, as well as the complete line of StopTech® braking systems and components are available through motorsports distributors and performance automotive aftermarket retailers today.  For more information, visit StopTech at http://www.stoptech.com/ and be sure to follow StopTech on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest for all the latest StopTech, Power Slot and Centric Parts news.
