New StopTech Big Brake Kit for Volkswagen Golf R32

StopTech,  the ultra-performance division of Centric Parts, has introduced front Big Brake Kits for the 2008 and 2009 Volkswagen Golf R32.  StopTech Big Brake Kits provide shorter stopping distances, better brake modulation, firmer pedal feel and less brake fade resulting in stronger, more reliable performance on and off the track. 

The front StopTech Big Brake Kits for the 2008 and 2009 Volkswagen Golf R32 comes with a pair of 355X32 slotted or drilled floating directional AeroRotors featuring billet aluminum mounting brackets with stainless steel hubs, DOT-compliant stainless steel braided Teflon brake lines, StopTech's highly-praised high performance street pads plus the company's patented, forged, high performance, four-piston ST-40 calipers.

The R32’s muscle is provided by its namesake, the 3.2 liter naturally aspirated narrow angle VR6 engine, which provides 250 horsepower and 236 ft. lbs. of torque. Combined with Volkswagen’s gripping 4Motion all-wheel-drive system and dual clutch DSG transmission, the R32 accelerated from 0-60 in approximately 6.4 seconds.  So there may be some need for stopping power there, right?  First introduced in the United States in 2002, the first edition Golf R32 quickly sold three times as many units as VW initially expected.

StopTech, the ultra-performance division of Centric Parts, is a leading innovator of world-class brake components and brake systems for production-based racing cars and high performance vehicles on the street and track.  StopTech was the first to offer balanced brake upgrades for production cars and remains the worldwide leader with more than 700 platform offerings to dramatically improve overall braking performance.
