AP Racing’s Factory Big Brake Kits

The Factory Big Brake range reflects AP Racing’s focus on OEM partnerships and development of high performance components for specific vehicles. Designed as an upgrade to the original factory supplied calipers, the new kits draw on features and technology derived from the company’s motorsport pursuits.

Large discs and multi-piston calipers considerably increase a car’s stopping power, allowing for a reduced braking effort as well as more responsive late braking, whilst also boosting confidence levels on track. Developed to resist fade after repeated high speed stops, the AP Racing Factory Big kits are fully adapted for regular motoring use, with dust seals and a durable anti-corrosion paint finish.

All Factory brake kits come with AP Racing brake pads, developed and tailored to suit AP Racing calipers. Suitable for both road and track, the pads’ compound offers consistent performance over time, excellent feel with a low wear rate, minimum noise, low dust and low fade characteristics. In addition to calipers, discs and brake pads, all high performance AP Racing brake kits include bespoke mounting bracket and bolts, a plumbing kit and DOT 5.1 high temperature brake fluid. All Factory Big Brake Kits are design to work with standard-fit OEM wheels, however it’s advisable to check specific clearances before buying or installing.
