Thumbs up Turbo and NA 328-355 mm StopTech Brake Kits!

Hi Everyone!

UPDATE 4/6/04: Now shipping!

-------------
Supercar Engineering is currently in the process of collaboration with StopTech on the design of brake upgrade systems for all Dodge Stealth and Mitsubishi 3000GT models.

The unique features of StopTech kits are:
  • Tested and designed specifically for the 3/S cars with caliper pistons sized to optimize the brake balance and ABS performance.
  • StopTech ST-40 four-piston caliper utilizes a unique patented bolt-in bridge, making it three times stiffer than comparable calipers, which results in less vibration and noise, and better pedal feel due to less flexing.
  • Superior and unmatched quality!
  • StopTech Patent Pending AeroRotors® are manufactured at QS-9000 registered facilities. They flow more air than any rotor available, meaning less brake fade and longer rotor and pad life.
  • StopTech 7075-T6 billet aluminum AeroHats® are directionally vented for improved cooling.
  • Floating drive system with a unique Inconel® spring washer anti-rattle system allows for rotor expansion due to heat and virtually eliminates rotor warping.
  • Stainless steel braided brake lines for improved brake control.
  • Red or Black calipers are standard, other colors are available.
  • Available with a widest selection of brake pads.
  • Available for all Turbo and NA 3S models!


If you remember, StopTech kits took top three places in the brake competition during 2002 Sports Compact Car shootout where a 3/S car came second to last. These are great kits and StopTech is really a top-notch company.

The kits will be available exclusively through Supercar Engineering. I was asked to advertise discounts only during the product introduction period. I will not be able to do that later. Here it goes:

3000GT/Stealth NA - 328x28 mm AeroRotors - $1,895.
3000GT/Stealth Turbo - 332x32 mm AeroRotors - $1,995.
3000GT/Stealth Turbo - 355x32 mm AeroRotors - $2,595.

If you want to reserve the pricing I am asking only for a fully refundable $199 downpayment just to demonstrate your intent to buy. This would help me and StopTech plan the orders. Please specify which kit and if red or black color. Red and black are standard colors. Optional colors are $200. Yellow, silver and blue are the other colors that are available.

The kits uses standard-shaped Porsche brake pads. Axxis Ultimate come as standard brake pads with all StopTech kits. Other available options are Carbotech, Hawk, PFC, Porterfield, Ferodo, Pagid, you name it! Replacement brake pads are abundant.

Slotted rotors are standard. Plain are available for free. Drilled is a $100 option.

The 332 mm turbo kits fit stock 2nd gen turbo 17" wheels. The 355 mm turbo kits fit stock 2nd gen turbo 18" wheels. The NA kits will fit either wheel from the above, the 17" 97-99 SL wheels and probably many other wheels too. I can check which kit would fit into 1st gen 17" TT wheels if someone is interested. It is likely to fit moswt custom wheels too. For custom wheels I will have templates that you can print, cut out and see if the kit fits your wheels.

I am now taking orders. Email me at [email protected]. My website states payment options (PayPal, cards, check).

UPDATE, 1/28/04:
Here are the templates to check the wheel clearances. A template needs to be printed, cut out with scissors and inserted into one of your dismounted wheels to see if it fits.

It is an upgrade for turbo cars, so for NA cars it is "skip-level" upgrade. Actually, probably a skip two levels upgrade because your are upgrading your calipers and rotors too.

There isn't anything like it out there like StopTech rotors. The closest comparison would be the Brembo Gran Turismo kit from Tirerack for twice the price. Even though their rotors are floating too, only StopTech has the floating rotor system that is inherently quiet and maintenance-free. It is a huge upgrade no matter how you look at it. Check out the bullet points above.

Damn Philip. This is great news I've been wondering if someone would get together with StopTech and get a set made for us.

Will you be selling these once the initial purchase is over?

Is there any chance of getting braking benchmarks from StopTech's test car? (I seem to remember reading that they install and test every kit they design, rather than just going from measurements like some folks do)

very nice phillip... do you think that i should go with the n/a kit instead of performing the 1st gen TT brake swap? although i already have the front calipers, i could re-sell them if getting the stop tech kit would be an easier solution (then buying all the misc parts i would have to buy to complete the TT brake upgrade that does add up close to the stop tech n/a kit price)...also does the kit come with brake pads?

saying it's an upgrade and proving it's an upgrade are two very different things. i don't mean to sound like an ass, but i'm coming from a point of view where i have never heard of stoptech brakes. I've never seen test results for it compared to stock vr4 calipers. I think you have a good setup, but i guess i'd just like to see the numbers. u said the 3s came in second to last in the sport compact challenge, but there are a few notes u left out. the vr4 was a spyder which invariably weighs heavier than standard coupes. the brakes had stock calipers (lord knows he didn't spend money on making the car faster). lastly, he was competing with cars that were lighter or with upgraded brakes.

trust me, the last thing i want to do is offend a new tuner please don't take anything i said offensively, but offering a 4 piston caliper and telling me it's better than my 4 piston caliper needs some proof to back it up.

ps- the gran tourismo brake package can be had for $3k from DR ($500 over ur list price)

A correction and a couple of additions:

The 332 mm turbo kits fit stock 2nd gen turbo 17" wheels. The 355 mm (corrected from 332 mm) turbo kits fit stock 2nd gen turbo 18" wheels. The NA kits will fit either wheel from the above, the 17" 97-99 SL wheels and probably most other wheels too. I will provide wheel fitting templates upon request.

Slotted rotors are standard. Plain are available for free. Drilled is a $100 option.

The kits use standard-shaped Porsche brake pads. Axxis Ultimate come as standard brake pads on all StopTech kits. Other available options are Carbotech, Hawk, PFC, Porterfield, Ferodo, Pagid, you name it! Replacement brake pads are abundant.

For turbo kits red and black calipers are standard colors. The NA kits come standard in black anodized color with other colors as an option. Optional colors are $200. Yellow, silver and blue are other colors available.

Brake pads that are more expensive cost extra money. Cheaper brake pads cost less money. Go here and click search, search and search 3 times and you will see a list of pads that StopTech has.

The rotors are coated with a solution for shipping and storage only. Once they start working the pads wipe off all the visible corrosion. The aluminum rotor hats come close enough to the friction surface, so brake pads do a good job of keeping the rotor surface clean.

Absolutely, Jeff! But right now I am offering these promotions and it is probably the best time to get a kit. It is possible to reserve a kit at that price for a delivery in the future. The downpayment is fully refundable if you change your mind.

If you ask me, get a StopTech kit. It is a better kit and a better value than TT calipers (see my earlier post about that comparison). It will work better and look nicer too. Yes, a set of pads is included.

The 355 mm StopTech kit is a better kit than the F50 GT kit. I can say that without any hesitation. It is a balanced upgrade. All other parameters ar the same or better. Not to mention the price! You can read more about balanced brake upgrades here (find the F50 on the chart), here and here.
