|The chaps at Zertec don't' appear to be
interested in half measures. Whether it's the brightest HID light
conversions, the fruitiest exhaust conversions or dinner plate size
brakes, they seek them out. Brakes are their latest area of interest.
World Rally Car Brembo Brakes
The Discs: Brembo fully floating 300mm x 25mm grooved discs
These discs have many advantages over regular discs, the prime one being temperature control. High performance brakes need to reach optimum temperature quickly yet they need to be able to dissipate excess heat equally as fast. Another advantage is that under extreme braking the heat transfer does not over expand the disc and pop the bolt heads off. The race-engineered disc bells and caliper adaptors are made of HE 30 TF high grade aluminum. All the aluminium parts are anodised gold for durability and appearance.
The 4-pot calipers are manufactured by Brembo for motorsport use - do not confuse these specialised units with road calipers - there is a world of difference. The calipers use dual sized pistons, which give a more progressive feel than equal sized ones. The pistons are drilled to keep as much heat as possible out of the brake fluid. A quick release clip allows fast pad changes for track day use.
The Zertec kit comes complete as standard with Ferodo DS3000 pads, other pad material can be supplied at customers request. Castrol SRF racing brake fluid is also included with the package. Castrol SRF has a boiling point of over 500 degrees Celsius, which results in zero compression for consistent, lap-after- lap, pedal feel - the ultimate performance fluid. To complete the kit a full set (front and rear) of BF Goodridge brake line fittings and stainless steel braided hoses are included. Best of all, the kit is engineered to fit in the standard 15 front wheels! There is also a 370mm x 32mm (disc size) kit to fit 18 wheels (including the Cerbera), which has 8 pistons and 4 pads per disc!
