Brembo 1M-.8061AS 355mm 6-Piston GT-S Big Brake Kit Audi and VW
Brembo GT-S Big Brake Kits combine larger diameter rotors with improved heat absorption and cooling together with stiffer calipers to give you the ultimate braking system for street or track. Brembo's cast monobloc aluminum calipers and lightweight rotor hats also minimize unsprung and rotational weight which improves suspension response and vehicle acceleration.
Brembo GT-S systems are available with multiple rotor finish options:
Drilled: Drilled brake discs are suitable for a wide range of applications, operating temperatures and driving environments (especially wet weather). Benefit: Offers the highest initial response of all available disc finishes while continuously refreshing the braking surface. Drawback: Drilled discs are more prone to heat checking and thermal cracking if used consistently at extremely high temperatures.
Slotted Type 1: Brembo "8 straight - slot" face type with an emphasis on stable brake feel and improved resilience against thermal cracking. Benefit: Stable braking feel at all temperatures, low disc wear, and continuously refreshes the braking surface for optimum performance. Drawback: The Type-1 standard disc face has lower initial response as compared to drilled or type-3 slotted discs.
Slotted Type 3: Motorsport developed finish with multiple curved slots and an emphasis on high initial response and a smooth pedal release. Benefit: Highest overall braking confidence, control, and allows driver to spend less time on the brake pedal. Drawback: Increased chance to mechanically abrade the pad and disc surface leading to quicker or uneven pad wear (depending on car setup or track layout).
Brembo Big brake kits are supplied with braided stainless lines manufactured by Goodridge.
Brembo GT-S kits include Ferodo High Performance FM1000 brake pads. The FM1000 is a proprietary compound supplied by Ferodo to Brembo for great initial response, feel and modulation characteristics in a wide range of environments.
All components of a Brembo BBK are carefully engineered to save unsprung weight, reduce compliance, and increase airflow. Brembo GT-S 6 piston calipers weigh just 7.8 lb (3.54 kg) unloaded.
Brembo 1Mx.8061AS BBK Vehicle Fitment:
Brembo BBK Manufacturing: Brembo GT-S calipers are a 1 piece cast monobloc caliper with a hard anodized black finish to resist discoloration from high heat and feature a red Brembo logo.
Brembo Rotors are made from high carbon cast iron and are plated for corrosion resistance.
Brembo Rotor Hats and caliper brackets are made from billet aluminum and hard-anodized to eliminate color change or fading.
Goodridge stainless steel brake lines are included in every Brembo BBK. The lines are constructed from a PTFE inner liner with a braided stainless outer sleeve. Every Goodridge brake line is individually 100% pressure tested and guaranteed to be leak free
Brembo GT-S kits include Ferodo High Performance FM1000 brake pads.
