We’ve seen consistent weight savings across the board when ditching stock brake parts for StopTech’s Big Brake Kits. In addition to decreasing braking distance and increasing cooling capabilities, un-sprung weight loss is also an important, added benefit for performance. Below are images comparing StopTech’s ST40 BBK and the even lighter Trophy ST40 BBK for Volkswagen’s Golf R whose factory parts come in weighing 13.95 lbs. heavier than the standard ST40 calipers.
StopTech Big Brake Kits for the Volkswagen Golf R as well as several other applications are IN STOCK here at Achtuning! Give us a call (425-895-0000) for availability and pricing or simply head to our online store and begin shopping. We’d also like to remind everyone that your StopTech BBK purchase qualifies for FREE rear SportStop parts (OE-sized matching rear rotors, StopTech Street Performance pads, and stainless-steel braided brake lines). Did we mention we offer FREE SHIPPING on any StopTech order? (We have, just wanted to remind you.) We also stock replacement hardware for StopTech’s big brake kits!! Could you possibly need another reason to shop StopTech at Achtuning?

We’ve got the Achtuning Golf R on the rack today, and we’re getting further fitment tests done with StopTech product – an advantage of being a STOCKING distributor for the popular and proven brand. It’s too early for us to go into detail about what’s going on but you’ll notice StopTech’s Trophy calipers and a 3″ down-pipe we’re looking at for our next Golf R installment. Stay tuned!

The StopTech Sport Kit is an excellent choice for the enthusiast whose rotors are nearing the end of their service life. StopTech’s Sport Kit includes direct replacement OE diameter rotors at all four corners, performance brake pads front and rear and stainless steel brake lines all around. Slotted rotors offer an eye-catching look and provide all the performance gains of a drilled rotor, but are less likely to crack under repeated, severe usage. Stainless steel lines provide immediate response to brake pedal input and give better feedback. Performance brake pads offer improved stopping power in all conditions with less dust than other pads. Quality is assured as all components are manufactured to meet or exceed all OE specifications.
StopTech’s Sport Kit includes all hardware needed for a complete job:
* Front and rear StopTech SportStop Brake Rotors
* Front and rear StopTech Stainless Steel Brake Lines
* Front and rear StopTech Street Performance Brake Pads
ACHTUN!NG regularly stocks the most popular applications so expect immediate availability for most of your braking needs. Competitive online pricing and FREE SHIPPING within the continental US makes the StopTech Sport Brake Upgrade a no-brainer.

A while back we sold a set of StopTech Big Brakes to Lucasz, a Mk5 Jetta TDI owner who lives north of our border. He posted up the post-install pictures and we had to share them, especially considering the quality of his photos and how well the car has come along…
The StopTech Big Brake Kit consists of 328x28mm slotted two-piece rotors, stainless-steel braided brake lines, ceramic brake pads, and those gorgeous 4-piston calipers powder-coated silver to match the theme of Lucasz’ Jetta.
