Performance Parts / Replacement Parts

The top race car drivers know that going fast is more than just camshafts, valves, and pistons, it’s also about brake pads, calipers and rotors. Good brakes are just as important as a powerful engine. Performance brakes provide shorter stopping distances, so the driver can spend more time on the gas for lower elapsed times, and performance brakes won’t fade, so the brakes work just as well at the end of the race as they did at the beginning.

    Performance brake rotors are drilled and/or slotted to disperse heat, so the rotor runs cooler. Holes and slots also expel water, for optimal pad contact in the rain, and they vent gasses from the brake pads to reduce brake fade and increase pad life. We offer rotors in standard and larger than stock sizes in one-piece design and two-piece with lightweight aluminum center construction. Most have curved and directional internal vanes to maximize airflow for cooling. Our brake pads come in a myriad of organic, ceramic, and metallic compounds, so you can get the friction material that’s ideally suited to your needs.

    We offer both direct replacement calipers, and for the ultimate in performance, fixed calipers with multiple opposed pistons on each side of the brake disc. Both are made from lightweight aluminum. Fixed calipers transfer pressure to the brake pads more efficiently than the typical OE floating calipers, and multiple pistons apply more even pressure to the pads. Performance calipers often have larger pistons, which can provide more clamping pressure. Many calipers with 6 or more pistons have bore sizes that increase in size from front to rear, to keep the brake pad flat against the rotor and prevent pad taper.

    One of the easiest upgrades you can make to your brake system is replacing the stock rubber brake hoses with stainless steel. Stainless steel brake hoses have a Teflon inner hose with a braided stainless steel covering. This construction prevents expansion when the hose is pressurized, eliminating the mushy pedal feel that you can experience with ordinary rubber hoses, especially when the brake fluid temperature is elevated under performance driving conditions. The stainless steel also provides better protection against debris and abrasion, and provides a much better appearance as well.

    When building a race car and using calipers with different piston bores, the master cylinder bore diameter may also need to be changed to maintain proper pedal travel. Space is often at a premium on racing vehicles and the master cylinder may have to be smaller in size or mounted in a different location. We offer a large selection of master cylinders so you can get the one that’s best for your application, including tandem master cylinders, compact remote flange mount master cylinders, high volume master cylinders, and master cylinders designed for remote reservoirs.

    Disc brakes are the gold standard of braking, but if your vehicle is afflicted with drum brakes our drum-to-disc brake conversion kits are the performance remedy. Their ineffective drum brakes were the weakness of classic muscle cars, but with our conversion kits you can upgrade to disc brakes and enjoy stopping power that matches the go power. We offer everything from basic kits with front spindles, backing plates and caliper brackets that allow you to build your own system, to complete front and 4-wheel kits that include the above plus calipers, rotors, bearings, hoses, master cylinder and booster. We also have rear disc brake conversion kits to upgrade many late model pickups to 4-wheel disc brakes.

    Brake fluid is one of the most important components of a high performance brake system. Ordinary DOT 3 fluid does not have a high enough boiling point for performance use and even lesser grades of DOT 4 fluid can be too hygroscopic and attract moisture, which lowers the boiling point. The high performance fluid we offer has been tested to 626°F, it has low moisture affinity, and resists aeration and compressibility to maintain firm pedal feel. We also offer DOT 5 silicone fluid for classic and show cars, which won’t harm paint if spilled. DOT 5 should not be used for racing.
