Stoptech are designed and built (milled & assembled) in the USA at their California facility. They are the best out there behind AP racing. 99% of track guys in the US run stoptech due to made in USA, reliability, and easily accessible parts & customer service.How are stop tech calipers. Do they make them themselves or outsourced from another company? Might be a good buy and then recolor them after the fact
Sale.is on going. Also FYI the sale is a stoptech sale that's run thru buybrakes as the link to the overstock sale is on stoptechs own website.I don't know what your talking about I just order mine??? And they said the sale was going on until they reduce their stock.
The coating is useless. It wears off anyways.Just bought the Golf/A3 kit for my S3. I know they're not optimal but this is strictly a DD car that almost certainly won't see the track or even any all out street driving. I'm mainly looking for better brake feel/modulation and dropping a ton of rotational mass and unsprung weight. We'll see how it goes. Appreciate the help on deciphering the numbering scheme. Btw, they didn't have the coated rotors. Is there an effective way to apply something similar myself?
Just ordered a set of the blue ST-40's with the 355mm slotted rotors. Was looking to upgrade the brakes on my golf for quite some time, and this deal really was way to good to pass up. Will need to run a 5mm spacer on my ampliforms, but aside from that fitment checks out. Made certain to call stoptech directly to successfully clear up the fact that it mates up to the TSI's carriers.
Shoutout to the rep from site as well. Super helpful and walked me through the process., was quoted as under three weeks for shipping.
My ST40 kit showed up today! They originally said 3+ weeks but it literally shipped the day after I received that notification. They shipped to my work and arrived after I left so I look forward to opening them up tomorrow!
Exactly that spec, eyeballing it you might be able to get away with a 3mil spacer but i'd rather be safe and give the touch extra clearance with a 5mil.What size Ampliforms do you have? 18x8.5 et43?
If so, sure I'll need at least 5mm spacers. Will have to measure before they get here.
