BRAKE SERVICES

BRAKE PAD & ROTOR REPLACEMENT / UPGRADE

Achtuning offers a wide range of high-quality brake pads and rotors to suit your driving style and needs. From soft-compound factory-replacement pads and OEM solid rotors, to aggressive track compound pads and two-piece floating rotors and everything in between - we've got you covered.

Factory brake pads are manufactured with soft compounds to ensure quiet operation, and effective emergency stopping power at low temperatures. The use of these soft compounds makes them fade and become ineffective under consistent, heavy braking that is required on track. Factory rotors don't provide ample heat dispersion and can crack under high temperatures - not safe for the track. They will also generate large amounts of brake dust compared to other, higher quality pad options.

We offer a range of aggressive, track-compound brake pads that provide consistent braking performance lap after lap. We recommend switching these pads in before your track day, and then switching back to street pads after the event if the car is also driven on the street. This will maximize your time on track, and allows you to use the same set of track pads for multiple events, instead of cooking the stock/street pads in a few short laps.

BRAKE FLUID FLUSH SERVICE

Improve the performance of your brake system with performing necessary brake fluid flush services. A Brake Fluid Flush Service removes existing brake fluid, moisture, and debris from your car's brake lines and hydraulic systems, and replaces it with high-quality Motul RBF 600 or StopTech STR600 DOT 4 Racing Brake Fluid. Both Motul RBF 600 and StopTech STR600 brake fluids are suitable for street and track applications. If you need a fluid that provides a higher boiling point, we also offer Motul RBF660 and StopTech STR660 for track specific applications.

BRAKE LINE REPLACEMENT & UPGRADES

Factory rubber brake lines do a decent job for day-to-day driving, but are prone to expansion under heavy braking. This can result in inconsistent pedal feel, and less consistent brake response. Achtuning carries DOT-approved stainless steel braided brake line kits, which prevent expansion and offer improved braking performance whether you're commuting to work or pushing your car's limits on track.

BRAKE SYSTEM DIAGNOSIS & REPAIR

Are your brakes fading, making noise, pulsating, or not performing as desired? Our expert technicians can diagnose hardware, electronic, and hydraulic system issues that may be limiting the effectiveness of your Audi or Volkswagen brake system. From brake pad/rotor inspection to ABS module replacement or re-coding, Achtuning carries state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and tools to effectively identify and repair problems with your car's brake system.

PERFORMANCE BRAKE PAD INSTALLATION

One of the most critical areas to address before heading to the track is replacing your vehicle's factory brake pads and rotors. Factory brake pads are manufactured with soft compounds to ensure quiet operation, and effective emergency stopping power at low temperatures. However, the use of these soft compounds makes them fade and become ineffective under consistent, heavy braking that is required on track. Factory rotors don't provide ample heat dispersion and can crack under high temperatures.

Achtuning also offers aggressive track-compound brake pads for big brake kits that offer consistent braking performance lap after lap. We recommend switching these pads in before your track day or HPDE, and then switching back to street pads after the event. This will maximize your time on track, and allows you to use the same set of track pads for multiple events, instead of cooking the stock/street pads in a few short laps.

BIG BRAKE KITS

Need more stopping power beyond what the factory brake system provides? Achtuning offers a large selection of performance Big Brake Kits for Volkswagen, Audi, BMW, Porsche, and more. From OEM+ upgrade kits with slotted rotors and more aggressive pad compounds, to full-on race-bred braking systems from StopTech, we have what you need to get your car stopping shorter both on the street and track.
