Brembo GT System Brake Kits

Brembo, the world's foremost name in brakes, offer these kits to increase the performance and looks of your car. As the braking system's primary function is to dissipate heat, larger, more sophisticated discs are used in order to increase the fade resistance of the system. These discs are directionally vented for enhanced cooling, as well as drilled or slotted for improved consistency, continuously cleaning and refreshing the pad surface. Increase your car's ability to not only stop better but stop people in their tracks just by the look of these beautiful brake kits.

Cool Carbon Performance Brake Pads

Cool Carbon Performance establishes the new reference in performance braking for performance street/ AutoX/ HPDE/and light track. Both Cool Carbon compounds have been developed at German R&D facilities and have been tested extensively on the German autobahn. Cool Carbon Performance brake pads deliver true undiluted performance.

Street Performance/Track Tuned (S/T) - This compound has a friction level above OE, increasing with heat, and with better torque and stopping capability. It is very stable, both cold and hot to temperatures exceeding 450 C (842 F), due to a special "hollow" ceramic structure that exhibits excellent heat dissipation characteristics. Constrained layer noise shims minimize possibility of noise under all driving conditions. Improved pedal feel and reduced dust can be expected after fully bedded.

S/T compound - Features very linear braking, consistent torque, stopping ability & temperature stability; very good fade resistance; long life, rotor friendly, low dust/ noise;
Excellent for daily street use as well as AutoX and HPDE.

Hawk Performance Brake Pads

Whether you drive in spirited fashion through canyon switchbacks or pull 20,000 lbs over 4,000-foot summits, Hawk Performance has engineered the right pad friction compound for your street performance goals. Using a properly performing brake system, you'll enjoy the peace of mind in knowing that your vehicle will safely stop each and every time.
Hawk HPS Performance Brake Pads
The High Performance Street compound offers a higher coefficient of friction over stock brake pads and can provide you 20-40% more stopping power and higher resistance to brake fade than most standard replacement pads. Less fade means you'll have a highly durable brake pad with less brake dust.

Hawk HP Plus Performance Brake Pads
Hawk Performance's HP Plus brake pad compound is ideal for Autocross and Track Day drivers looking for a high performance race compound that can take the heat of the track and get you home safely without having to change the pads.
HP Plus utilizes a unique Ferro-Carbon, high-tech friction material that was developed and manufactured for sport driving in autocross, Solo II and "track day" applications. The Ferro-Carbon formulation offers lower wear rates and higher torque values than other competitive materials.
Extremely high coefficient of friction makes HP Plus the perfect upgrade over stock for high performance streetcars used in autocross competition or that experience repetitive, heavy braking.


Hawk Ceramic Performance Brake Pads
Ultimate stopping power in an ultra-low dust, low noise ceramic compound!
Hawk Performance has introduced a premium, high performance, ultra-low dust, low noise compound called Performance Ceramic.
Performance Ceramic is engineered to reduce brake NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness), creating a quieter performing brake pad. Furthermore, the ceramic brake pad formula has a linear friction profile that allows your ABS brake system to work more effectively. With Performance Ceramic you can expect reduced brake pad wear, lower dust output levels and a rotor-friendly brake pad.
Performance Ceramic - quiet, clean & fast stopping!
