Replacement Aero Rotors and Performance Pads are sold separately below.
StopTech's Balanced Brake Upgrade equips your MINI Cooper or Cooper S with larger 4-piston front calipers and plus sized StopTech AeroRotors. StopTech big brake kits provide a neutral biased brake system that will improve safety and performance on and off the track as well as add a striking visual enhancement that is second to none. StopTech big brake kits also include stainless steel brake lines and StopTech performance brake pads to complete the package. The StopTech big brake kit for the Mini Cooper is available for the front axle only and will not work with JCW brake optioned Mini Coopers.
Adding the StopTech ST-40 caliper to your MINI Cooper or Cooper S as part of the Balanced Brake Kit will give you the advantage of one of the stiffest calipers on the market. StopTech's ST-40 caliper incorporates their bolt-in bridge, which is strong enough to dramatically reduce caliper distortion yet does not sacrifice the caliper's cooling. The squeeze forged ST-40 caliper has the least flex of any tested after market or OEM caliper. The air channel in the bridge is designed to help air flow through the retainer resulting in better cooling. A stiffer caliper on your Cooper means improved performance without added vibration, noise or pad taper. You will also benefit from better pedal feel under extreme braking conditions. You can brake confidently knowing your Mini's ST-40 calipers are staying cool as you dive into corners.
The MINI Cooper Big Brake Kit uses StopTech's patented AeroRotor, featuring their innovative cooling vanes. The unique vanes inside the disc maximize airflow through the rotor. This improved directional design reduces turbulence and flows more air than any other rotor tested. AeroRotors provide up to 80% better airflow over original equipment rotors and 10-30% better airflow than other directional vaned racing rotors. What does that mean for you? Your Mini's rotors will stay cooler lap after lap (or stoplight after stoplight) leaving them less prone to warping and cracking while preventing brake fade and/or failure.
StopTech makes their own stainless steel brake lines for your MINI in Southern California. StopTech is a DOT registered supplier of stainless steel brake lines. Line material and fittings are all made from the highest quality parts available. StopTech's brake lines feature a clear, abrasion-resistant cover for maximum protection against chaffing. Strict quality control procedures are in place to ensure lines are the correct length and every fully assembled stainless steel brake line is tested to a pressure of 4,500 psi.
The supplied StopTech performance street pad is an excellent choice for the daily driven Mini. A fine choice for the occasional autocross also, but if regular trips to autocross events or track days are in your Cooper's future be sure to select a more appropriate pad for those events.
This kit will NOT fit under the stock 16" or 17"MINI wheels. There are a few aftermarket 17" wheels that fit.
