Serious brake kit Tarox 10 piston for F56!!!

Just found this for anyone who is after serious stopping power for the Mini F56

http://www.performance-car-guide.co....-mini-f56.html



Not cheap though....

Can't say that I'm unhappy with the JCW Brakes I have now though for less than half price of this kit.

They look good but are probs overkill for the F56, nice though. I did wonder if anyone would do anything for the rear, but considering they dont it suggests the stopping power wouldnt be much more than the JCW kit.

Not sure if I'm understanding this right but doesn't the below state that they are quite a bit more powerful?

"In practice this equates to 1802kg of braking force per side (front), a significant improvement over the 1424kg mustered by the factory setup."

The thing perhaps of greater significance is that the discs are 4.8kg lighter and calipers another 1.1kg lighter which is lighter near 6kg of unsprung weight!

I guess it's for those who want ultimate performance at a cost

Thing is with brakes, if you have enough force to lock up your wheels then it wont matter past that point, and im sure the JCW brakes can do that. So even if it does have more force I doubt in the real world they would be any better. If you get my drift. They do look good though and having large discs to fill the wheels would be nice.

Be nice to have a picture of the kit on the bench
Esp the discs
Be suprised it fits all 18" rims, as et54 is a challenge

I'm thinking 2 part discs for the Jcw setup would be best bang for buck

I have found the Bembro brakes on the JCW to be more than adequate and I have noticed noticed any fade during track use or on mountain twisty events. The GP has the 6 piston version for a more dedicated track car.

I absolutely ~loved~ the JCW brakes (and pads!) on the Dragon last fall: http://tinyurl.com/grh6xol

After flushing with some Motul, they didn't fade, squeak, or excessively dust one stinking bit over the entire trip. I freaking loved them and was pleasantly surprised with the OEM brake pads. I would not have changed a thing with the brake setup. And I agree, if they are powerful enough to lock them up, you don't need any more powerful calipers, in fact I would wonder if you'd have problems with F/R bias and pedal feel?

Plus, if these aftermarket calipers & rotors are lighter, that is great for sprung weight, but... you have less mass now for absorbing heat from the pads, right?

They look amazing and are lighter than OEM. The cost is too much tho

See your point and i was tempted to think the same BUT weight savings and fade are also factors. I am with all you guys here,really nice but too expensive but if you're a serious trackday fan and if (don't know as i don't do track days or get close on the road even in our s)you experience fade then these might be a money no object upgrade. HOWEVERif you're chucking this sort of money at a road car to track then you might argue you'd be better with a challenge or dedicated track car eg a caterham or bac etc etc!

Looknice but then jcw callipers look v nice too!

Surprisingly delighted to have moved to an f54((with a r59 in the fold for fun!)
