BMW F80 Rear RC4 15.0" 380x32mm Big Brake Kit
BMW F80 M3 Rear RC4 380x32mm Big Brake Kit
With tons of power and heavy curb weight, high center of gravity, and multiple electronic aids even the stock BMW demands extreme brakes. However many feature power and suspension modifications that significantly exceed the OEM brake system design. The Alcon brake upgrades are engineered to be a complete front & rear brake upgrade for the BMW for a beginner all the way to the advanced driver regardless of the level of modification the car has seen. Alcon in the UK has done extensive brake dynamometer and on-car testing to ensure the Superkit upgrades are tailored for a street application (low dust, noise, appropriate friction materials) or a race application (race friction, aggressive disc grooving, different caliper finish).
Alcon Components in the UK has the resources, testing capability, motorsport experience (FIA sanctioned Rally, Formula Cars, Open wheel, Super GT, Nismo GT Academy, etc…), and capability to engineer a complete brake package for the BMW. The result of all the in house testing and development is the Alcon brake upgrade
- 380mm x 33mm rear floating discs
- RC4 forved aluminum rear calipers with compatible design and piston stagger.
- High strength bracketry with no flex under massive loads
- Pagid RS1-9 brake pads.
This new Alcon kit features the latest Calipers which are beautifully machined from Forged Alloy and have been optimized for use with the Nissan GT-R, featuring massive industry leading 380mmx 32mm Alcon front discs and larger 355mm X 32mm rear discs, both with lightweight aluminum bells.
Both front and rear calipers feature staggered pistons in order to ensure even pad wear, the pistons are also made from a proprietary steel, a material known for having exemplary thermal resistance when utilised in braking applications. Other design traits intended to help both calipers weather the extreme temperatures generated by hard braking include unique weatherproof seals, and an internal fluid passage way that negates the need for an external bridging pipe.
As many customer will be looking to use their BMWs on track, the brake kit comes standard with the excellent harder wearing Pagid RS19 pads, and with further pad options available soon. The kit has been enhanced to provide the same performance as the proven Alcon Superkit.
This kit really impresses with not just the increased stopping power but also the pedal feel from the brakes.
