      Are the Stoptechs pictured above a file photo or is that the Golf R Specific kit? Only reason I ask is because those look to be 6pot, and the only kits I have seen so far have been four.

      Just a "stock" photo provided by StopTech, the same they used in their press release. We'll get an actual image on our website once we get them in.

      Jeff is getting his VW Golf R equipped with APR's ECU upgrade along with a Hartmann down-pipe and VWR short-shift kit today! When done, we will try and get some sound clips comparing our Achtuning Golf R equipped with the full Hartmann turbo-back exhaust and Jeff's who is keeping his stock cat-back.

      We've got a LOT of work ahead of us! We just took delivery of the APR "Stage 4" engine that was once intended for our A3 but will now end up in the ACHTUNING Golf R! Then we'll be resurrecting the ACHTUNING A3 project shortly after... STAY TUNED!!

      You know something is wrong when you do a "turbo upgrade" and there's still an internal waste gate on the turbo

      ... And that's not all the deliveries for today, either! Just in, we're really excited about the brand new StopTech Trophy caliper recently developed/completed for the VW Golf R and we will go much further into detail about the Trophy kit from StopTech next week. Stay tuned!

      I'll need to update you with what happened last week while I was gone...



      It's done!! The APR "Stage 4" engine is in, and Bill took the Golf R to The Ridge Motorsport Park for this last weekend's ACNW track event, "Strassenlage" to put it through its paces and get to know this new monster. There are still a few, minor "tweaks" to really complete the project but for the most part it's done and running well! We expect this APR set-up should put us just under the 500hp mark while StopTech's Trophy BBK will aid in bringing all that power to a halt. More info and details yet to come but first, I must now go out and drive it!

      Did you do anything to the clutch to handle 500HP? What about front LSD? Upgraded gears?

    29. 08-30-2012 06:05 PM #239
      We're running a Southbend Stage 3 clutch w/ a steel single-mass flywheel, no LSD. Going to work out a complete spec-sheet once we have one ready to share.

      StopTech has unveiled their new line of racing brake pads!



      StopTech, the ultra performance and racing brand from Centric Parts, introduces a new line of StopTech Racing Brake Friction that brings the company’s “Brake Late, Finish First” philosophy to a wider range of racing disciplines. The new racing pads complement the company’s extensive range of high performance brake component and system upgrades - and help turn any StopTech system into a dedicated race system.

      Available in four formulations, the new StopTech Racing Brake Pads are engineered to provide optimal friction levels for a variety of different racing applications. All StopTech Racing Brake Pads provide shorter stops, increased control through superior pedal modulation, and fade-free performance at extreme racing temperatures. StopTech Racing pads are designed to provide superior performance in any racing brake system, and match the outstanding performance capabilities drivers have come to expect from all StopTech Racing Brake Systems and components.

      StopTech's unique metallic compounds are blended with carbon and graphite particles to provide an optimal high temperature race friction material. The result is smoother, more predictable and more consistent brake engagement along with exceptional release characteristics not found in most other racing friction materials.

      StopTech engineers work directly with race teams, often trackside, to gather valuable experience in dynamic real world conditions. Data is immediately integrated into the research and development process, resulting in optimized brake systems for individual racing programs.

      StopTech Racing Brake Pads Provide:
      • Optimized friction levels for shortest stops
      • Engineered for extreme temperatures
      • Superb modulation and release characteristics
      • Low compressibility for precise pedal actuation
      • Excellent pad and rotor life



      Pad Compound Characteristics

      SR34 Compound
      • Superior pedal feel and modulation characteristics
      • Formulated for high initial bite
      • Slight torque rise with temperature
      • Extremely low pad and abraded disc wear
      • All purpose pad for high grip, high power applications


      SR33 Compound
      • Slight reduction in torque compared to SR34 Compound
      • Excellent pedal modulation for applications requiring a medium friction level
      • Flat torque curve with temperature rise
      • Extreme fade resistance
      • Great for rear applications that require less friction but same level of control as SR34 Compound


      SR32 Compound
      • Similar friction levels to the SR34 Compound
      • Linear torque curve with temperature rise with excellent release characteristics
      • Superb abraded disc wear
      • Maximum high-temperature stability
      • For medium to high horsepower applications that require higher friction levels


      SR30 Compound
      • Medium to low friction levels with linear torque curve with rising temperature
      • Extreme high temperature fade resistance
      • Excellent modulation and release characteristics
      • Repeatable performance
      • For Touring Car rear applications and others requiring lower torque



      StopTech Racing Brake Friction products are available now. For more information about any StopTech product or to place an order, visit www.achtuning.com or give us a call - 425-895-0000.
