ARE86 Front 4 Piston ATS Brembo Big Brake Kit – STREET KIT
The ARE86 front ATS Brembo upgrade kit offers 86/BRZ owners the opportunity to dramatically increase the stopping power of their cars for a fraction of the cost of alternative big brake kits.
The kit uses high quality genuine components including OEM Brembo 4 piston calipers from the Cadillac ATS, DBA rotors, Bendix pads and Goodridge stainless steel lines (in the Performance Street Kit).
Replacing OEM brakes on the front axle with performance orientated DBA discs, Brembo calipers and Bendix brake pads will improve the 86/BRZ’s braking performance in all conditions. More consistent pedal feel and brake performance will be achieved with the use of high quality components that dissipate heat better and outperform your factory brake system.
This kit will work with OEM rear calipers and will also not impact braking bias for street and casual track use.
IMPORTANT: This kit does not clear factory wheels.
This kit utilises high quality OEM Brembo 4 piston calipers used on the Cadillac ATS.
Brembo is the leading manufacturer of calipers in the world which gives you piece of mind when you put your foot on the brake pedal.
As these particular calipers use symmetrical piston sizes there is no need to swap the bleed screw or install them 'upside down' which is required for other brake swap kits for the 86/BRZ.
ATS BRAKE SWAP BRACKET
One of the key components of this kit is the custom bracket kit. These parts are accurately machined so that you can install this critical component without issues. All the items you need to mount your calipers are included.
The custom bracket kit makes the process of mounting these calipers very straight forward.
The brackets are made of the highest quality materials including T6 6061 Aluminum.
This kit employs high quality DBA rotors and Bendix pads.
The Street Kit includes the DBA Street Series rotor and Bendix street compound pad
The Performance Street Kit includes DBA T3 Performance rotors and Bendix ‘Street Road Track’ pads. This kit also includes Goodridge front and rear stainless steel braided brake lines.
WHAT ABOUT THE REAR?
The 86/BRZ chassis will predominantly use the braking equipment on the front axle, as naturally this is where our momentum and weight moves when the brakes are applied. So much so in fact, that many cars in the Toyota 86 Racing Series (supporting category of Australian Supercars) will retain the same rear pads for an entire season. With this in mind, we have designed this kit to work with your existing factory rear brakes.
IMPORTANT: ARE86 recommends talking to your state’s transport authority to determine the legality of modifying OEM brake components and the use of modified brakes on public roads before buying this kit.We recommend using a trained professional to install this kit.
