StopTech Introduces Two-Piece Rotor Upgrades for 2009-2013 Nissan GT-R


(Industry, Calif. – March 14, 2013) - StopTech®, the championship-winning performance and racing brand from Centric Parts®, has today introduced a range of two-piece AeroRotor® Replacement Kits (ARK) for the 2009-2013 Nissan GT-R. The new direct replacement rotors are available for front or rear axles and include pre-assembled StopTech two-piece, floating, directional AeroRotors with iron friction rings and aluminum AeroHats®.

The custom engineered and thermal-optimized StopTech ARKs for the GT-R include two-piece front rotors that feature a more robust directional AeroVane design for increased endurance, as well as additional mass to better handle the increased workload the front axle experiences in this application. Owing to the lighter workloads experienced by the rear brakes on the GT-R, the rear StopTech ARKs are able to be weight-optimized with larger air gaps to increase airflow while reducing rotational mass.

Available in drilled or slotted form, with or without a protective zinc coating, these new StopTech rotor upgrades expand Centric’s offerings for the R35 GT-R, which already include lines, pads, calipers and more. With lessons learned through more than a decade of racing and 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.
