RACINGLINE STAGE 3+ MQB CARBON CERAMIC BIG BRAKE KIT
STAGE 3+ MQB / MQB 'evo'
CARBON CERAMIC BRAKE KIT
Welcome to a global first: a Carbon Ceramic brake kit for the MQB platform. Not only is each disc close to half the weight of the small factory disc, the kit is packed with motorsport-inspired features. Astonishing stopping performance, again and again and again.
The RacingLine Stage 3+ Carbon Ceramic Monoblock Brake Kit moves braking technology to a level above anything seen before for the MQB platform cars.
We've been intensively testing our CCM upgrade for over a year prior to launch. The result? Simply spectacular resistance to fade, dramatic weight-savings, and long-lasting durability.
Our 380mm rotor construction interweaves discontinuous carbon fibre to form a 3D multi-directional matrix. Which adds up to great weight savings, performance and durability versus traditional steel brakes
With over triple the heat capacity of conventional brakes, the repeatability of the stopping power is exceptional. It's braking unlike any metal rotor kit can deliver
Despite this performance capability, our Stage 3+ Carbon Kit is still perfect for daily usage, with good pedal response from cold
Each stiff, lightweight Forged Monoblock caliper starts life as a one-piece ultra-strong forged billet, exquisitely finished with a complex 5-axis CNC machining procedure
Despite the size of these discs, they weigh in at nearly half the mass of the (much smaller) factory steel ones. That's a big difference to unsprung weight
The 380mm rotor construction interweaves discontinuous carbon fibre to form a 3D multi-directional matrix. Despite their size, each disc weighs just 55% of the original factory steel rotors
Due to the very different frictional and thermal properties of ceramic brakes we have provided a pad compound that has been developed specifically for use with CCM discs
Fully floating mounting between disc and bell allow for thermal expansion and contraction to avoid cracking or warping. The anti-rattle mounts keep it quiet
The 'Forged Monoblock' single-piece construction of our 6-piston aluminium thin-profile calipers give extreme stiffness and light weight, and aid in wheel clearance packaging
FULL INSTALL KIT
Everything you need for installation: CCM discs, calipers, mounting brackets, ceramic pads, braided steel lines. Plus the option of Hub Adaptors for extra wheel clearance. Bolt on & drive!
As our kit is engineered exclusively for MQB-platform VWG cars, we've developed piston sizes perfectly matched to master cylinders and servos for beautiful progressive pedal response
Our year-long testing programme really opened our eyes. This clip was filmed after fifty consecutive stops from 160mph/260kph - with no loss of stopping power.
MEDIA AWARD WINNER
PRECISION ENGINEERED FOR PERFECT PERFORMANCE
Each caliper starts life as an single-piece ultra-strong forged billet, before extensive 5-axis machining operations to finish
Specific CCM pad material gives consistent pedal response - from stone cold through to the intense heat of relentless track use
Drilled Carbon Ceramic disc material gives three times the heat conductivity of a regular disc
Fully floating mounting between disc and bell allowing free expansion and contraction with heat without cracking
Dramatic unsprung weight reduction: 5.7kg per disc vs 10.4kg for the (much smaller) factory rotor
380mm discs: Minimum 19" wheel diameter required.
Our Hub Adaptors recommended for use with factory wheels.

Fitment of the Stage 3+ brake kit on 2.5 TFSI RS3 Sportback/Saloon or TTRS, requires shims between the bearing housing/upright and caliper mounting bracket to centralise the disc between the pad surfaces – failure to do so will cause caliper and rotor damage. Please check with your dealer before fitment.

Saving unsprung weight is really important on a performance car. All those heavy masses on the 'road-side' of your springs - the wheels, tyres, suspension arms and of course brakes - make a massive difference to the car's responses as it turns and handles bumps in the road, differences you can really feel as a driver.
Check out the weight saving for our Carbon Ceramic discs versus our 380mm steel discs. Not to mention the difference to the small, stock factory set ups. That's a serious saving.
