The RacingLine VWR Monoblock Big Brake Upgrade brings the highest levels of race-proven brake technology to your VWG car, providing a real supercar look and feel in the braking department.
The lightweight Monoblock construction is usually reserved for the highest-specification motorsport kits, being vastly stiffer and lighter than the original calipers, coming in at almost half the weight of the original for significant unsprung mass savings. Meanwhile, a much bigger, fully-floating disc and enlarged pad area gives greater heat capacity, thus reducing the effect of fade, whilst the braided steel brake lines reduce the compliance in the braking system to ensure firm pedal response under all conditions.
Developed solely for VWG cars, this is simply the best Big Brake Upgrade available for your car.
The 'Monoblock' construction of our 6-piston aluminium thin-profile calipers give extreme stiffness and light weight, and aid in wheel clearance packaging.
The discs, just like true high-end motorsport set ups, are of a 'fully-floating' disc & silent running mount design - giving protection from warping and cracking under high temps.
Giant 360mm x 32mm disc with directional curved cooling vanes. As a two-piece design, these can be replaced by simply bolting off from the centre bell (or top-hat).
Engineered exclusively for VWG cars, with piston sizes matched to master cylinders and servos for perfect responses. A full kit of supporting bells, brackets and lines included.
Slim caliper profile plus unique ‘True-Loc’ hub adaptors to allow clearance for all 18”+ rims (in 5,7,10mm)
Staggered piston sizes, specific for VWG cars and their master cylinders give the optimum pedal bite underfoot - it's not by chance that they feel so good!

VWR Monoblock caliper weight: 3.85kg / 8.49lb
/// The monoblock calipers are machined from a solid billet of lightweight aluminium and designed to house large brake pads in a widely-available size to give maximum customer choice of pad brands.
/// Our motorsport experience has proven that Monoblock construction gives the highest levels of stiffness available, ensuring consistently firm pedal to help combat the negative effects of caliper flex, allowing improved force distribution and reduced vibration.
/// Each unit features a thin caliper profile to aid in wheel clearance and weight savings while not sacrificing structural integrity, even in the most demanding environments.
/// Extensive development of caliper pistons of differing diameters ensure even pressure distribution across the whole pad surface.
/// Extensively tested, developed and manufactured in the UK, and proven on our race cars to ensure the kit performs in the most demanding of environments.
/// Available in red, blue or black to give you the choice to match into your factory rear brakes or choose your own look.
/// Custom colours available to order.
