Our RacingLine Monoblock Performance Brake Upgrade is an ultra-durable, fast-road & track solution developed exclusively for VWG cars. Weve developed these brakes from our decades of motorsport experience, and, as youd expect, they provide outstanding stopping power again and again. Yet, all at an affordable price. Our lightweight Monoblock one-piece construction is usually reserved for the highest-specification motorsport kits, being vastly stiffer and lighter than the original calipers. The kit comes in at almost half the weight of the original for significant unsprung mass savings.The caliper, pads and bracket assembly weigh in at 4.4kg (9.7lb) vs 8.6kg (18.9lb) for the factory Golf R kit. A bigger, 345mm triple-grove disc gives greater heat capacity, thus reducing the effect of fade. Smart design features such as our Tru-Loc hub adaptor system plus built-in pad-wear indicators are all part of RacingLines typical attention to detail.
Our extensive development programme on piston sizes gives beautiful progressive pedal feel and thats because (unlike many) we only develop brakes for VWG cars. PRECISION ENGINEERED FOR PERFECT PERFORMANCE. 345x28mm one piece disc with directional curved cooling vanes.
Triple hook groove design for improved bite & debris clearance plus reduced distortion / vibration. Cast Carbon disc material withstands high temperature stresses without excessive material expansion. Braided stainless steel brake lines for firm pedal response.
Braking upgrades arent really about the stopping difference for a single stop. No, The main reason for using bigger brakes is to increasing the heat capacity when you're stopping hard again and again.This really matters for repeated stopping when, say, you're running hard down a mountain pass with no cool-down, or working the car hard around the track. This really shows on our testing. After just five hard stops from 60mph (100kmh), the difference in stopping distance between stock Golf 7.5R brakes and the RacingLine Performance Brakes is getting really noticeable. The factory brakes are fading fast, the pedal is getting closer to the floor and all the bite has gone. Increase the speeds, or do more heavy stops and the factory brake set up is really starting to get beyond its limits. Meanwhile, The RacingLine brakes perform the same on stop 5 as they did on stop 1. The pedal is firm, the bite is still there, and the feel underfoot is still as reassuring as ever. Fitment under your rims is often a challenge with a brake upgrade. Not with RacingLine's brake kits.
Our unique Tru-Loc hub adaptor system allows you to mechanically lock 5, 7 or 10mm hub adaptors into the centre bell. Meaning no need for loose spacers to be added (and approved in markets where spacers are illegal).
Swapping from summer to winter wheels? No problem, select the appropriate Tru-Loc adaptor width and carry on.
