Default Progressive Brake Upgrade

This thread is to introduce a new concept called Progressive Upgrade and its benefits.

Traditionally as your cars go faster and get more horsepower, you normally would:

1. Find from other models that has a larger brake (bigger rotor or larger caliper) and swap to your stock or make some adapter to make them fit into your spindles.

2. Buy and install a BBK if money allows.

The concern is as always, would it really work for me, and if not what option do I have; spend more money to make it work, or give up and restore it back to stock - which puts me back to where I started???

Would there be a better option to resolve this situation?

RB has been making light weight two piece rotors for different car makes, so our plan is to develop a caliper kit that can bolt directly onto the same car spindle of these cars using RB calipers/Adapters.

Benefit of the Progressive Upgrade:

1. Budget Friendly - You don't have to buy the complete brake kit at once, but two piece rotor first and caliper upgrade later.

2. Cost Effective - Cost less than buying one of these BBK out there which can cost some $3000. Our calipers and adapters can be purchased to fit stock or aftermarket one piece rotors, although it's not recommended for track racing.

3. Fitment and Quality Assurance - Professionally designed and developed by RB. One single reliable source. Save you time, money and frustrations in dealing with multi-sources.

4. After Sales Service - Backed up by a 25 years company dedicated to improving the brake performance on both street driving and track racing.

Hi!

Will there be a caliper upgrade for Audi S4 B8? I plan on purchasing disks now and a caliper later. Who is a manufacturer of a caliper?

Thanks,
Vladimir

Audi fits into the same series of our Progressive Upgrade. But since we get fewer inquiries from Audi than VW so if you can make inform your community for the availability may be there will be more interests.

You can go ahead and purchase the two piece rotors reserving yourself for future caliper kit upgrade.

All calipers are built and made in our Fullerton, CA facility.

As far as I understand, you can use the same caliper (for 345x30 disks) as for Golf, just with different mounting braces? I am in for it
