When you talk about modifying cars, a lot of time is spent on exhausts, body kits, superchargers, turbochargers, performance chips, weight reduction, the list goes on. Something that often goes under the radar are brake upgrades. Aside from the obvious safety benefits, a better braking system will actually greatly enhance the driving experience. Being able to brake later means you can keep accelerating longer, and you can approach each corner with more confidence knowing that your upgraded system will slow you down safely to take the corner. If this wasn’t the case, professional drivers wouldn’t worry about upgrading brakes. So, without further ado, I introduce this to you, the Revo by Alcon Audi B8 390mm x 32mm MONO6 Big Brake Kit.
If you were looking to upgrade your brake system, then look no further. With this kit, you will see improvements in essentially every asset there is to brake durability and performance. Have you ever taken your car for a spin, driving it hard for a significant duration of time, only to notice that the brakes are feeling a little spongy, and stopping takes a little longer? Well, these Revo brakes benefit from less ‘fade’, meaning that the brakes will maintain their usual feel for longer. This is due to the higher heat absorption and dispersion rates, which keep the system in optimum condition to allow for consistent brake feel and performance.
Over time, average brake systems warp, which reduces car performance, and more importantly, safety. This Revo system boasts two-piece floating rotors which allows for warp-free performance. The benefit of this is also seen in the cost department, where the durability of the system will likely result in lower maintenance costs.
One of the greatest benefits is the shorter pedal travel required to use these brakes. This results in faster application of braking, which is especially important in those situations where the difference between life and death is a matter of milliseconds.
So, to sum up, a better brake system allows better driving performance, safer driving characteristics, lower maintenance costs, and also an aesthetic benefit. Need I say any more?
