The complete rear brake system after an entire season of Formula D abuse still looks brand new! Both the rotor and the pads have very little wear, a far cry from the old system.
Dai was pretty happy with the performance of the old brakes but what he noticed right away was that the new brakes were much more consistent in performance and the pedal effort and brake lever pull required to lock the brakes was lower and more consistent. A lower effort and good stopping power were due to the larger pad area, increased hydraulic gain in the front calipers, and stiffer front and rear calipers. What everyone is super impressed with is how much better everything wears to the point of several orders of magnitude longer pad and rotor life. Despite being much more substantial, the new Stoptech system is only slightly heavier than the previous brakes as well.
With Stoptech, our team has state of the art brakes which should be enough for any anticipated technical gains in power and tire grip in the near future!
