|You see their victories each
weekend at the races, whether it is NASCAR, CART, Formula 1 or Superbike. But what was the
key to these victories
does performance really mean? We at Brembo believe it is the knowledge gained from
producing for the leading manufactures in original equipment and worldwide racing
competitions. Together this testimonial echoes the creation of our High Performance
Brembo's High Performance Brake Systems include 2 levels:
At the Sport level, an end user can find
both an introductory performance solution combined with an appealing aesthetic
application. The Sport level is comprised of a 1-piece drilled or slotted
and solid or vented rotors, according to your original manufacturers requirements and a
complete set of performance pads.
The next performance level, Gran Turismo,
is comprised of both 1 or 2-piece vented rotors that are 12 to 14 inch cross-drilled
and/or slotted. In the 2-piece system, billet aluminum hats are application specific and
have been individually machined to engineering specifications. The marriage of these
pieces create a "floating disc" which improves heat related stress, brake
performance and pedal feel.
Brembo also includes 2-piece cast aluminum 4-piston
calipers with performance friction material brake pads. These calipers are mounted with
aircraft quality hardware including vehicle specific machined brackets. The vehicle's
hydraulic system is connected to the calipers with stainless-steel braided brake lines.
With over 40 years of experience, this translates to
equipping the weekend racers, driving enthusiasts or the family in the SUV. Our goal is to
give this same level of performance not only to NASCAR and F1 drivers, like Bill Elliott
or Michael Schumacher, but to you, because performance is important.
