The StopTech ST60 “Trophy” Big Brake Kit has arrived for the ACHTUNING Volkswagen Golf R! (Which means we’re going to have a KILLER deal available for anyone interested in a slightly used ST40 Trophy kit for Golf R!! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.) Upgrading from the current 4-piston to 6-piston caliper gets us more thermal capacity and more pad surface for an over-all improvement in braking performance. The gorgeous StopTech “Trophy” MIL-spec hard-anodized calipers are impervious to color change or fading at extreme race temperatures.
Despite the increase in size, the over-all weight difference is minimal – under 2 lb when including the larger ST60 caliper bracket! We look forward to seeing how much of a difference the kit will make for us on the track.

StopTech, the championship-winning performance and racing brand from Centric Parts, has released a Big Brake Kit developed for the 2006-2012 Volkswagen GTI and several other Volkswagen and Audi applications! The kits are available for front axle applications and include StopTech 1-piece Sport Rotors, StopTech ST-41 powder-coated four-piston calipers with the patented stiffening bridge, StopTech Street Performance brake pads for extended high performance street driving as well as occasional track use, StopTech braided stainless steel brake lines, plus all necessary brackets and hardware to complete the job.
The stiff 2-piece, fully-forged calipers have designated piston sizes specific to this application and provide a firmer, more responsive brake pedal that provides better brake pedal modulation. The larger 328x25mm directionally-vaned 1-piece StopTech Sport Rotors, available in slotted or drilled finishes, provide greater heat capacity and reduced brake fade. Also assisting in fade resistance and higher performance are the StopTech Street Performance Pads which have a high maximum operating temperature and high bite for responsive brakes that can be driven hard. The included StopTech braided stainless steel brake lines reduce system compliance and help provide a firmer pedal with a more immediate and better modulated response to inputs.
Available today from Achtuning, these new “entry level” StopTech big brake kits expand the company’s offerings in the high performance aftermarket brake segment, covering not only the Mk5 and Mk6 VW GTI, but also certain EOS, Jetta, Beetle, and Audi A3 applications.
With lessons learned through more than a decade of racing and exhaustive in-house testing, StopTech high performance brake components are engineered to provide shorter stopping distances, better brake modulation, firmer pedal feel and less brake fade for stronger, more reliable performance on and off the track.
These have been added to the Achtuning Online Store. Prices range from $1495 to $1795 depending on options selected like rotor surface, coating, and caliper color.
