AP Racing by Essex Competition Brake Kits (Track/Race)
When you're fighting for tenths of a second on track, having a brake system that provides confidence is of paramount importance. Essex Designed AP Racing Competition Brake Kits are designed to make you go faster, period. When daily driving requirements take a back seat to lower lap times, our Competition Kits are the perfect fit.
Our Essex Designed AP Racing Competition Kits come in two flavors:
Our Standard Competition Kits use traditional AP Racing calipers like the one on the left above, whereas our Radi-CAL Competition Kits use AP's latest generation of cutting-edge Radi-CAL calipers (shown on the right).
The precise specification of each systems varies by application, but standard features for both the Standard and Radi-CAL Competition Kits include:
- Carefully chosen piston sizes for proper brake bias and seamless integration with OEM master cylinder & ABS systems
- Front-only kits are designed to mate perfectly with OEM rear brake components
- Durable anodized aluminum calipers with stainless steel pistons and anti-knockback springs
- High vane count, directional brake discs, with floating or fixed aluminum hats depending on application
- Lightweight, anodized aluminum caliper mounting brackets
- Spiegler stainless steel brake lines included with every kit
- All associated mounting bolts, hardware, and detailed installation instructions
