Product Description

Racing Brake Aluminum Caliper Big Brake Kits decrease stopping distance, eliminate brake fade, stiffen the brake pedal, and provide better brake modulation. Through our patented two-piece rotor design, we keep the brake system cool and increase braking power, longevity, and performance. Most of our racing customers demand strong and consistent brake torque under “extreme” braking conditions, durable system components, and an affordable price. RacingBrake focuses on these expectations and delivers a system that suits racers’ braking needs and includes everything needed for a complete installation.

RacingBrake calipers are made from forged 6061-T6 aluminum and precisely machined to every detail. Stock calipers – aluminum (Brembo) or cast iron (06-08 WRX) are mass-produced and are usually made through a casting or extrusion process which is not as dense and strong in structure as forging.

  • Caliper Body: Made of forged 6061-T6. Light weight at only 4.5lbs, these new RB4000 calipers are re-designed and built for the toughest brake jobs with extended service life before any rebuild is required.
  • Low Profile: Together with RB Center-Mount design two-piece rotors, you hardly even need to require a spacer to install the kit.
  • Piston Material: Made of stainless steel instead of aluminum commonly used by other caliper mfgrs which can substantially reduce the heat transfer (approx 1/10 of aluminum) from the pad to brake fluid. Pistons are vented to furtherreduce the heat contact area and improve air circulation thereby reducing more heat transfer.
  • Dust Seal: Our dust seal is of built-in type (instead of external boot type) uniquely designed to shield the dust and foreign material from contamination and will not rip – as commonly seen on boot type dust seals.
  • Hardware: Brake pad pins and banjo connections were re-designed for easier brake line connection and brake pad replacement.
  • Surface Coating: Powder coating with most durable finish for lasting appeal.
  • Hardware: Most hardware is made of stainless steel for durable performance and appearance.
  • Never Get Lost Bleeder Cap: Newly designed with a retaining loop so you will never have to find it again and/replace the lost ones. (made of durable EPDM)
  • Use standard FMSI brake pads (D647): A very common P/N (same as WRX 4-pot fix pistons calipers, plenty of choice for suppliers and compounds.
  • Pre-loaded Brake Pads: Brake pads are shipped pre-loaded to caliper from our warehouse.
  • Caliper Color: Choose your caliper color – Available in Red or Black.
  • Made in USA: Calipers are designed, fully assembled and hydro-tested in our Fullerton, CA facility, with full after sales support/service.

RacingBrake calipers are mounted to the adaptor with two high strength alloy steel bolts in a radial direction (top mount) – from the caliper down to the adaptor. Stock Brembo and cast iron fixed piston calipers are mounted in an axial direction (side mount), from the spindle to caliper. A top mount caliper is more rigid than a side mount caliper.

RacingBrake two-piece rotors are directional (different for left and right sides), heat treated for added strength, and use RB’s patented center mount design and convergent vane design, which increase airflow and makes the disc cooler. Electrodeposition Paint (EDP) is used to coat the aluminum hat, which is light weight and highly resistant to rust and corrosion. Hardware is a simple 2-piece component design (stud & nut) and is self locking to prevent the use of springs, glue, or clips.

From daily driver to dedicated tracking racing enthusiast, our ET-series brake pads provide a selection of various compounds that makes them easy to choose and use at an affordable cost.
