STAGE 3+ CARBON CERAMIC BRAKE KIT
Welcome to a global first: the development of carbon ceramic rotors specific to the MQB platform. Not only is each disc close to half the weight of the factory rotor, the kit is packed with motorsport-inspired features including our own forged monoblock calipers and matched pad compound. 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.
The result? Simply spectacular resistance to fade and dramatic weight-saving, unlike their steel counterparts.
Our 380mm rotor construction interweaves continuous carbon fibre to form a 3D multi-directional matrix. This gives significant benefits even over traditional carbon-ceramic products.
With triple the heat capacity of steel brakes, the repeatability of the stopping power is exceptional, and unlike any steel rotor kit can deliver.
Despite this performance, our Stage 3+ Carbon Kit is perfect for daily usage, with good pedal response from cold.
Each lightweight Forged Monoblock caliper is a one-piece construction that starts out from an ultra-strong forged billet. Rather than two halves bolted together, our design takes a complex 5-axis CNC machining procedure to build.
Despite the size of these discs, they weigh in at nearly half the mass of the factory cast iron ones. Each carbon disc weighs 5.7kg (12.6lb) vs 10.4kg (22.9lb) for the factory Golf 7R / S3 disc.
The 'Forged Monoblock' construction of our 6-piston aluminium thin-profile calipers give extreme stiffness and light weight, and aid in wheel clearance packaging.
Two-piece floating 380mm rotor construction interweaves continuous carbon fibre to form a 3D multi-directional matrix. Each disc weighs just 55% of the original factory steel rotors.
Fully floating mounting between disc and bell allow for thermal expansion and contraction to avoid cracking. The anti-rattle mounts keep it quiet.
As our kit is engineered exclusively for VWG cars, we've developed piston sizes perfectly matched to master cylinders and servos for beautiful progressive pedal response.
Due to the different frictional and thermal properties of ceramic brakes we include a pad compound that has been specifically developed for these carbon ceramic discs
FULL INSTALL KIT
Everything you need for installation: discs, calipers, mounting brackets, fast road pads, braided steel lines. Plus the option of Hub Adaptors for extra wheel clearance. Bolt on & drive!
This was filmed after fifty consecutive stops from 160mph/260kph - with no loss of stopping power.
PRECISION ENGINEERED FOR PERFECT PERFORMANCE
Each caliper starts life as an ultra-strong forged billet, before extensive 5-axis machining operations to finish
Fully floating mounting between disc and bell allowing free expansion and contraction with heat without cracking
Carbon Ceramic disc material gives three times the heat conductivity of a regular disc
Pads give consistent braking throughout the range of everday temperatures providing ultimate performance from completely cold right up to heavy track use
ALREADY GOT OUR
STAGE 3 BRAKE KIT?
Upgrade your steel-rotor Stage 3 Big Brake Kit to the Stage 3+ Carbon Discs and matched pads.
Easily retrofitted to your existing brake hardware. Note - you must replace both discs and pads for this conversion.
For heavy track use, with the extra temperatures that the ceramic kit generates, we recommend removing the dust seals from the calipers.
Ceramic Pads: VWR6700CARBON
Ceramic Discs: VWR680013
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!
