Product Description

The Brembo Gran Turismo kit offers superlative performance for both normal driving and demanding track day sessions. Brembo’s GT big brake kit gives an unmistakably sporty, eye-catching look to the car, offering that special touch for drivers who want their vehicle to stand out from the crowd. 

// 6-Piston Monoblock Caliper | 405x34 mm (16”) | 2-Piece Discs 

// Available in Red, Black, Silver, and Yellow caliper finishes

 

// Should big brakes be installed on the front wheels or all four?

During braking, the front of the vehicle does the majority of the work. Exactly how much is influenced by the vehicle's weight distribution, wheelbase, and center of gravity. Brembo engineers all of its systems to ensure that the brake balance of the vehicle is not compromised. If designed properly, adding a big brake system to the rear of the vehicle can result in improved thermal capacity, modulation and control of the vehicle. Brembo offers properly biased rear brake systems for a large number of high performance applications.

// Why use drilled or slotted discs?

Drilling or slotting discs aids the disc in several ways: The edges of the slots or holes continuously clean and refresh the pad surface as well as providing increased brake "bite". Additionally, they prevent gasses from collecting between the pad and disc interface.

// Why use a two-piece "floating" disc assembly?

First, by using an aluminum bell for the hub section of the disc saves a great deal of weight. Since this is both rotating and unsprung, it benefits the acceleration, braking, and handling of the vehicle. Secondly, it is better able to handle the large temperature changes that a brake disc experiences.

// How does reducing weight of the braking system benefit the vehicle?

Reducing the vehicle mass improves acceleration, and requires less energy to be dissipated during deceleration. Therefore, decreasing the mass of the caliper is valuable due to its contribution to to total vehicle mass, and decreasing the mass of the disc has an even greater benefit due to the fact that it must rotate as well. Additionally, the mass of the brake system is also unsprung mass. Reducing the unsprung mass has the additional benefit of improved suspension performance, resulting in enhanced ride and handling.

// How long does it take to install a Brembo system?

Most 2-wheel applications take only 2-3 hours to complete.
