StopTech Introduces One-Piece Rotor Big Brake Kits for VW GTI and More

(Industry, Calif. – March 6, 2013) - StopTech®, the championship-winning performance and racing brand from Centric Parts®, has today released a Big Brake Kit developed for the 2006-2012 Volkswagen GTI and several other Volkswagen and Audi applications.  The new kits are available for front axle applications and include StopTech 1-piece Sport Rotors, StopTech ST-41 powder-coated four-piston calipers with the patented stiffening bridge, StopTech Street Performance brake pads for extended high performance street driving as well as occasional track use, StopTech braided stainless steel brake lines, plus all necessary brackets and hardware to complete the job.

– Part Number 82.893.5N00.XX


The stiff 2-piece, fully-forged calipers have designated piston sizes specific to this application and provide a firmer, more responsive brake pedal that provides better brake pedal modulation. The larger 328 x 25 mm directionally-vaned 1-piece StopTech Sport Rotors, available in slotted or drilled finishes, provide greater heat capacity and reduced brake fade. Also assisting in fade resistance and higher performance are the StopTech Street Performance Pads which have a high maximum operating temperature and high bite for responsive brakes that can be driven hard. The included StopTech braided stainless steel brake lines reduce system compliance and help provide a firmer pedal with a more immediate and better modulated response to inputs.


Available today, these new StopTech big brake kits expand the company’s offerings in the high performance aftermarket brake segment, covering not only the Mk5 and Mk6 VW GTI, but also certain EOS, Jetta, Beetle and Audi A3 applications.

With lessons learned through more than a decade of racing and exhaustive in-house testing, StopTech high performance brake components are engineered to provide shorter stopping distances, better brake modulation, firmer pedal feel and less brake fade for stronger, more reliable performance on and off the track.

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
