As the winner of the free StopTech Sport Brake Upgrade from the 2011 Port Townsend Cruise, Neal was excited to bring us his Audi (B8) S4 today for the brake upgrade. However, since Neal actually has “bigger” plans in mind for the S4, we worked out a deal and got him into StopTech’s ST-60, 355mm Big Brake Kit instead!
A significant weight savings is noticed right off the bat, with almost 10 lbs. shaved off each corner when upgrading with StopTech’s BBK. The factory rotors alone weigh 5 lbs. more than the StopTech rotors! Side-by-side, not only is the size difference obvious, but the aesthetic upgrade with the StopTech caliper is immediately noticed… These calipers are HOT!!
Larger rotors on the BBK increase heat capacity, better brake cooling dissipates absorbed heat, and stiffer calipers and stainless-steel lines improve response and modulation to offer the Audi S4 the best in over all balanced braking performance! We are more than confident Neal will be absolutely impressed and immensely satisfied with his brake upgrade.
