TTRS Front Brake Upgrade Kit (w Street Pads)
TTRS Front Brake Upgrade Kit (w Street Pads) - 8S0698301GS1GRP
This front brake kit fits both Carbon Ceramic and Steel rotor 8S Audi TTRS models. The 8S TTRS is a great performing vehicle, unfortuneatly the brakes do not hold up well to track days. This is even more important for TTRS models with the Carbon Ceramic brakes as they are insanely expensive. This kit will allow you to upgrade your pads and rotors to a setup the is made to hold up to the heat. With the G-Loc compounds the street and track compounds are swapable to prevent the requirement of needing 2 brake setups for street and track use.
Brake Compound: The G-LOC™ GS-1 is our high-performance street compound. GS-1 produces very little dust and very little noise, while maintaining excellent initial bite and torque for street use. GS-1 has been unmatched in the industry for disc/rotor friendliness as well as its longevity. This compounds excellent performance on the street provides incredible braking force without ABS intervention. G-LOC™ GS-1 operating range starts at ambient up to 800°F (426°C). GS-1 is suitable for ALL street cars, tow vehicle, fleet vehicle, and armored vehicles. G-LOC™ GS-1 is NOT recommended for ANY track use.
Rotor Details: The Girodisc system is a direct replacement for the OE disc, no modifications are necessary. The disc will bolt directly to the car and work with OE calipers perfectly. By upgrading your brakes with lightweight high performance replacements as opposed to a big brake kit, your factory bias is maintained as well as your ABS efficiency. The Girodisc front rotors are approx 20.3lbs vs. 23.8lbs for the stock units. This reduction in rotational and unsprung weight allows for quicker acceleration and suspension response.
The central hat section of our rotor is made from strictly U.S. sourced 6061-T6 aircraft specification aluminum. The disc is made from our own proprietary cast iron, poured in the USA and machined from start to finish in house at Girodisc. The rotor utilizes a curved vane design, developed in racing to act as a centrifugal pump to force cooling air through the disc.
The rotor and hat have a floating mount system, which utilizes 8 or 10 high strength alloy steel drive pins, manufactured by Girodisc in the USA to our own specifications and cadmium plated for a long lasting corrosion resistance. These pins take the load from braking actions while maintaining the axial and radial float between the hat and disc. The pins are secured by grade 12 cap screws with hardened washers. In order to keep the rotors from making noise when cold, the pins are mounted with anti-noise spring washers on the rotor side which allow the rotor to grow with heat expansion but eliminate the rattle and noise associated with floating rotors. This float also allows the rotor to self center between the pads.
Once the Girodisc system is in place, simply replace the cast iron rotor when needed.
