STAGE 2 MONOBLOCK PERFORMANCE BRAKE UPGRADE
RaceLines Stage 2 Performance Brake upgrade is packed with features, bringing a real sportscar look and feel in the braking department for fast road use – all at an affordable price.
All the power in the world is next to useless if your stock brakes aren’t up to it. Our Stage 2 Monoblock Performance Brake Upgrade is an ultra-durable braking solution developed exclusively for fast-road VWG cars.
RaceLine have developed these brakes for street use from their decades of motorsport experience, and, as you’d expect, they provide outstanding stopping power again and again. Yet, all at an affordable price.
- The lightweight Monoblock one-piece construction is usually reserved for the highest-specification motorsport kits, being vastly stiffer and lighter than the original calipers.
- The kit comes in at almost half the weight of the original for significant unsprung mass savings. The caliper, pads and bracket assembly weigh in at 4.4kg (9.7lb) vs 8.6kg (18.9lb) for the factory Golf 7R kit.
- A bigger, 345mm ‘triple-grove’ disc gives greater heat capacity, thus reducing the effect of fade.
- Smart design features such as a Hub Adaptor system plus built-in pad-wear indicators are all part of RacingLine’s typical attention to detail.
- The extensive development programme on piston sizes gives beautiful progressive pedal feel – and that’s because (unlike many) we only develop brakes for VWG cars.
MONOBLOCK- The 'Monoblock' construction of the 4-piston aluminium thin-profile calipers give extreme stiffness and light weight, and aid in wheel clearance packaging.
GROOVED & VENTED- The discs, with integral mounting bells, use the ‘Triple Groove’ design across the face for improved bite and debris clearance.
DISC QUALITY- Discs made from high cast carbon - a mixture of high-quality steel combined with carbon; giving a far higher friction coefficient compared to normal steel rotors.
VWG-SPECIFIC- Engineered exclusively for VWG cars, with piston sizes matched to master cylinders and servos for perfect responses. A full kit of supporting bells, brackets and lines included.
SPORT PADS- Composite Ceramic Sport Pads are included with the ideal compound for fast-road use. Unusually for a brake upgrade kit, we’ve included pad wear sensor. Note: these pads are not suitable for track use.
FULL INSTALL KIT- Everything you need for installation: discs, callipers, mounting brackets, fast road pads, braided steel lines. Plus, the option of Hub Adaptors for extra wheel clearance. Bolt on & drive!
WHAT'S IN THE KIT?
- Monoblock Brake Caliper pair
- Caliper Mounting Bracket pair
- Full bolt mounting kit
- Braided Steel Brake Line Set
- Sport Brake Pad Set
- Triple Groove Brake disc pair
This Stage 2 kit has been developed as an effective fast road kit and isn't intended for track use.
If you're into track use, we recommend our Stage 3 Forged Monoblock Brake Kit (rather than this Stage 2 kit). With 6-piston lightweight callipers and a choice of 355 or 380mm two-piece discs, the Stage 3 kit is the ultimate brake solution for either track days or full race.
PRECISION ENGINEERED FOR PERFECT PERFORMANCE.
- 345x30mm one-piece disc with directional curved cooling vanes
- Triple hook groove design for improved bite & debris clearance plus reduced distortion / vibration
- Cast Carbon disc material withstands high temperature stresses without excessive material expansion
- Composite Ceramic fast-road pads with working temperature 50C-700C & 0.48 friction rating. Harder compound pads are also available
- Braided stainless steel brake lines for firm pedal response
Saving unsprung weight is really important on a performance car.
So, they’ve spent a lot of the development and design time making sure that the Performance Brake Kit cuts as much weight out as possible. The Monoblock Aluminium construction is the key to this saving - a single piece caliper is stronger, stiffer and can therefore be lighter than equivalent 2-piece calipers.
