The hero of this kit is no doubt the 6-piston ST60 caliper in all its massive glory. StopTech offers some of the stiffest calipers on the market with their two-piece modular design, even stiffer than some single-piece monobloc calipers, they claim. What this means for you, though, is that the brake pads are applied to the rotors evenly, thanks to how rigid the caliper is. Paired with the included stainless steel brake lines, stable and predictable braking with a firm pedal is what you’ll get, and that means you’ll be more confident than ever before.
While externally, StopTech’s caliper line looks the same, internally they are application specific as well. Each caliper has specific piston sizes matched to the car’s master cylinder for optimum brake balance, and each piston has high-temp silicone brake boots that’ll hold up on track. This isn’t all a sales pitch, either; we sat down with StopTech’s Lead Engineer, Tyler Hauptman, to hear more on what sets these stompers apart.
“I think StopTech stands alone in how we test our product,” he said, “We test every brake kit dynamically in 40-0, 60-0, 100-0 mph tests and also perform J-turn tests to see how well our brakes maintain stability of the car, factoring in ABS interaction during brake application and while cornering.” Think about that for a minute… StopTech produces brake kits for over 25 different manufacturers, ranging from current generation models all the way back to 60’s 911s, and they test every one.
