StopTech 83.896.6800.xx front Big Brake Kits for the Volkswagen Mk7 Golf R include 2 piece floating directional 380mm x 32mm StopTech slotted or crossdrilled AeroRotors with 7075 T6 billet aluminum StopTech AeroHats, 6 piston StopTech ST-60 calipers in black, red, silver, yellow, or blue, StopTech Stainless Steel front brake lines and StopTech Street Performance front brake pads.

StopTech Big Brake Kits improve aesthetics and exceed stock brake performance in three areas. First, larger rotors increase heat capacity. Second, improved brake cooling dissipates absorbed heat. Third, stiffer calipers and stainless steel lines reduce system compliance.

The key, however, is to increase heat capacity and reduce compliance without upsetting the stock front to rear brake torque ratio, also referred to as brake bias. Regardless of rotor diameter, brake pedal ratio, brake pad material, or number of pistons in your calipers, your maximum deceleration is limited every time by the tire to road interface. If the brake upgrade you select adds too much front brake torque (as many do), it will drastically shift the brake bias too far forward and reduce your car's ability to utilize the maximum traction of the tires at all four corners (even on ABS equipped cars), increasing stopping distances dramatically. In addition, too many pistons or pistons that are too large will make the brake pedal much more difficult to modulate, which limits a driver's control of brake input.

 Advantages of StopTech Big Brake Kits over other brake upgrades:

  • StopTech Balanced Brake Upgrades™ optimize brake bias to
    offer the shortest stopping distance with the best pedal feel.
  • StopTech ST-60 brake calipers are the stiffest calipers available,
    resulting in better clamping under hard braking and less pad taper.
  • StopTech AeroRotors® offer the best airflow available which results
    in better cooling, less fade, longer rotor life and increased brake pad life.
  • StopTech Stainless Steel Brake Lines are DOT approved and resistant to
    expansion which offers better brake modulation and a firmer brake pedal.
  • StopTech Street Performance Brake pads combine the benefits of street brake
    pads with aggressive friction compound formulas suitable for increased temperatures.

StopTech ST-60 - 6 piston Calipers

StopTech's ST-60 calipers are manufactured from fully forged aluminum for optimal strength and light weight. StopTechs patented, removable center bridge further resists yaw (flex) and allows pads to be changed without caliper removal. The StopTech forged calipers have the lowest amount of flex and deflection among 25 of the leading caliper models (including some monoblocks) from well-known manufacturers. Stiff calipers offer better performance with no vibration or noise, improved pedal feel and no radial pad taper. Forging also produces a beautifully finished, nonporous caliper, calipers that are cast can have major issues with porosity which can even cause calipers to leak. StopTech does all finish machining (such as piston bores sized correctly for the application), assembly, and test in California. Dust boots are standard on StopTech calipers to keep the pistons clear of contamination and extend the service life of the calipers.

 Advantages of StopTech's ST-60 6 piston Caliper:

  • Pistons sized to match brake kit to vehicle application
  • 100% leak down and pressure tested to 2,500 PSI
  • Differential piston sizes minimize pad taper
  • Uses standard FMSI D1247 brake pad
  • Uses Silicone dust boots
  • Made of forged aluminum alloy
  • Weight: 9.05 Lb (4.10 Kg) unloaded
  • Improved brake pedal feel and feedback


StopTech's Patented AeroRotors

The ability to absorb and dissipate heat is essential to brake system performance. The patented StopTech AeroRotor® assembly uses uniquely designed and patented AeroVanesĀ® inside the disc to optimize airflow through the rotor. This improved directional design minimizes turbulence and flows up to 61 percent more air than any other rotor tested. The result is up to 80 percent better airflow over original equipment rotors and 10-30 percent better airflow than other directional vane racing rotors currently available. Better airflow equals better cooling, and better cooling means less fade and better overall brake system performance.

StopTech AeroRotors® feature a proprietary alloy chemistry. By adding molybdenum to the gray iron, carefully targeting a narrow range of hardness and tensile strength values, and controlling the cooling rate of the rotor after casting, StopTech produces a friction ring with added crack resistance as well as improved functionality. StopTech AeroRotors are 100% made in the USA.

 Advantages of StopTech AeroRotors:

  • Enhanced durability for decreased lifetime costs
  • Superior airflow for increased heat dissipation
  • Consistent and predictable performance
  • Less fade
  • Increased pad life
  • Extended rotor life


StopTech Brake Rotor Surface Finishes

Slotted rotors are preferred over drilled due to their larger pad contact area and their resistance to cracking, crossdrilled rotors are available for light duty or show usage. Zinc coating helps reduce surface rust on unswept portions of the rotor.

 Variations of StopTech AeroRotors:

  • Slotted
  • Drilled
  • Non-zinc coated
  • Zinc coated


StopTech AeroHats and Caliper Brackets

The patented StopTech AeroHat™ has directional stand offs between the rotor and mounting bell (hat) that increase airflow to the outside faces of the rotor by 50-100% over traditional 2-piece designs. Outer rotor faces typically retain more heat than inner rotor faces which wears the outer pads faster. StopTech AeroHats™ increase airflow to reduce the temperature difference between the inside and outside faces of the rotor resulting in less distortion, even wear and improved heat dissapation compared to other fully floating designs.

StopTech AeroHats and caliper brackets are machined from billet 7075 aluminum on the latest active tooling CNC machines at StopTech's California manufacturing facility.The hats and brackets are hard-anodized to eliminate color change or fading. Inconel drive pin washers are used in the hat to rotor attachment, the washers are curved to add tension to the hat assembly, reducing rattle. Elongated drive pin slots allow separate expansion of rotor and hat to resist coning. Tapered slots allow evacuation of debris that might otherwise accumulate with straight-cut slots. The drive pins used to affix the hat to the rotor have a slightly out-of-round hole and are self-locking. They withstand high temperatures much better than typical lock washers and allow drive pins to move freely, yet securely, as hat and rotor expand at different rates.

 Advantages of StopTech AeroHats and Caliper Brackets:

  • Inconel drive pin washers resist oxidation or corrosion even at extreme temperatures
  • Curved drive pin washers add tension to the hat assembly, reducing rattle
  • Full-floating mounting hardware to eliminate pad knock-back
  • Directional stand offs improve airflow to rotor
  • Hard-anodizing is impervious to color change or fading
  • Application specific design for precise and proper fitment


StopTech Stainless Steel Brake Lines

StopTech is a DOT (U.S. Department of Transportation) registered supplier of brake lines. StopTech makes their own stainless steel brake lines in California from the highest quality parts available. StopTech brake lines consist of a Teflon® inner line that is covered with a layer of stainless steel woven braid. The Teflon® tube is very resistant to expansion under pressure and will not degrade from exposure to brake fluid. The stainless steel braid provides support for the Teflon and the weave is extremely durable against incidental impact and abrasion. Lines feature a clear abrasion-resistant cover for maximum protection against chaffing and particle intrusion.
