Wheel Fitment: Unlike most Big Brake Kits, the HPA system is designed to fit behind the OEM 18" GTI, GLI, or Golf R wheels without any spacers. Note: Factory dust shield must be removed to accommodate larger rotor.
Weight Savings: This kit shaves 6 pounds of rotational mass per rotor which results in improved acceleration and deceleration, and a total of 32 pounds of un-sprung weight for improved suspension function.
Calipers: CNC machined from billet aluminum, the fixed 6-piston caliper is designed to increase rigidity, improve braking efficiency, and improve pedal feel. Featuring internal crossover pipes, these calipers have a sleek streamlined look with no fragile external components. Pistons are sized to HPA specification with exact piston bore for perfect front and rear balance. Piston seals protect from dust, weather, and pressure to meet DOT spec.
Rotors: Two-piece floating rotor with directional curved vanes, and HPA curved slots. Hats are anodized CNC machined aluminum, and discs are zinc plated for corrosion protection.
Pads: The ceramic compound pads included with the kit are suitable for street and mild track use. They create minimal brake dust and are relatively quiet. Sharing the same profile as Corvette C5/C6, there are many different replacement options available on the open market.
**Note: the OEM pad wear sensors are eliminated.
