Brembo's latest direct replacement rotor assembly for the 330mm steel front OEM rotors on 997, 997S, 996 C4S & Turbo (NOT for 996C2 models) are a great way to save weight and improve cooling properties for cars that are taken to the track. A lightweight two piece assembly with a billet hat, McLaren Hardware System and a drilled and silver plated outer disc they are sold in pairs. These are 330x34mm replacement discs for the factory steel rotors.
Brembo 2-piece discs are made up of an advanced cast-iron alloy which offers an exceptional coefficient of friction and resistance to thermal shock and fatigue.
As the braking system's primary function is to dissipate heat, larger, more sophisticated discs are used in order to increase the fade resistance of the system. These discs are directionally vented for enhanced cooling, and slotted for improved consistency, continuously cleaning and refreshing the pad surface.
Through Brembo's comprehensive understanding of materials and advanced design capabilities, Brembo's 2-piece discs are designed to be as lightweight as possible without compromising strength or longevity. Achieving this level of design is a capability that sets Brembo apart.
By manufacturing the center section out of precision milled billet aluminum, a great deal of weight can be saved in this key location. This reduces both unsprung and rotating weight which benefits handling, acceleration, and overall vehicle dynamics.
Superior metallurgy and exceptional engineering allow Brembo discs to exceed in the most demanding conditions. Their advanced cast iron alloy lasts longer than any disc in the high performance and racing market.
Brembo's properitary floating hardware system permits a specific amount of radial and axial float which allows the disc to grow independent from the bell, averting thermal distortion when subjected to extreme temperatures. It also preloads the disc assembly to prevent premature wear and eliminate noise during street use. Brembo discs are coated with zinc ("gold" color) to provide an attractive corrosive resistant finish.
- Slotted discs are recommended when using race pad materials or compounds. the vehicle is submitted to extreme braking duties such as towing or hauling heavy loads.
- Improve pad “bite”, improve wet weather performance, continuously refresh the brake pad
