Save $$$s when you buy a great value brake kit. This kit contains a set of EBC Brakes Racing RP-X brake pads and a pair of 2-piece fully-floating brake rotors. Available for front and rear fitments.
EBC Racings� RP-X compound is an ultra-high performance track and race pad designed for performance vehicles driven hard on track and for dedicated race cars. RP-X has a very stable friction coefficient of 0.55 mu up to and beyond 850 C, making it an excellent performer for even the most demanding vehicle applications. RP-X also has a high friction level from cold, requiring no warmup to achieve maximum braking effect which makes this material well suited for sprint race and hill climb events. Although RP-X is not R90 homologated for use on the public roads in EU member states, the fact this material possesses excellent cold performance means RP-X can be safely used for driving to/from motorsport events (where local laws permit).
EBC Racing does however emphasise that RP-X has been developed for peak on-track performance, meaning higher levels of brake dust and brake noise should be expected. RP-X has comparable disc wear to many other popular track/race materials, however RP-X disc wear is considerably greater than EBC Racing�s other track pad RP-1 which results in high levels of brake dust.
Compared to RP-1, RP-X has a 25 per cent increase in friction coefficient across its working temperature range with a much more �positive� initial bite. This characteristic potentially makes RP-X more suitable on heavy or inherently under-servoed vehicles. For light-medium weight vehicles, cars with non EBC Big Brake Kits fitted, or vehicles with no ABS, the less fierce nature of EBC Racing�s other track material RP-1 may be preferable.
EBC Racing 2-Piece Floating Brake Discs
- Engineered, manufactured and run-out tested at EBC's headquarters in Northampton, UK
- Sold either as a direct OE replacement for vehicles where 2-piece brake discs are fitted as standard
- As a simple bolt-on 2-piece floating disc upgrade for vehicles with 1-piece cast iron discs fitted as standard*
- 48 directionally curved and handed vanes allow effective heat dissipation, resulting in lower operating temperatures that help delay brake fade
- Friction rings cast from G3500 metallurgy with a high copper/high carbon content
- Reduced weight compare to OE discs
*No vehicle modifications are required for 2-piece rotor conversionsWhen developing these brake rotors, the mission set to EBC Brakes Racing was to engineer the highest quality 2-piece brake rotor on today's marketplace, at any price point. Consequently, these rotors are manufactured from the finest materials and take advantage of state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques, achieving a brake rotor of exceptionally high quality.
All outer friction rings are cast from a high-copper, high-carbon G3500 disc alloy giving them a high resistance to wear and cracking, even when used on track or for racing. The cast iron outer ring ‘floats’ on EBC's patented SD-Drive technology bobbins, allowing the friction ring to expand and contract freely by up to 3mm when subjected to the extreme heat generated from hard braking.
The bells are precision machined from aerospace grade aluminum then hard anodised for great looks and excellent durability.
All bobbins are machined from a single piece of stainless steel, preventing unsightly corrosion and ensuring the outer ring continues to float freely, even after years of exposure to road elements. EBC Racing's 2-piece floating rotors offer a low maintenance solution that are at home on both the public roads and the race track. Each bobbin location also features an anti-rattle spring clip, meaning these rotors are totally silent in operation and do not have the ‘off brake rotor rattle’ that is common with many other ‘full race’ 2-piece rotor systems.
*Upgrading from a 1-piece rotor to a 2-piece floating rotor will shave crucial kilograms off your vehicles un-sprung rotational mass, providing a noticeable improvement in corner entry turn in, tyre road holding, fuel economy and increasing the BHP at the wheels. Additionally, when the cast iron friction ring becomes worn after a period of use, the outer ring can be replaced independently of the other rotor components, allowing the centre hub and stainless bobbins to be re-used which significantly reduces long term running costs.
