New Product: AP Racing by Essex Competition Brakes for the Nissan 350Z


We have now expanded our proven AP Racing by Essex Competition Brake Kit lineup to the Nissan 350Z platform! Our product page for this kit can be found here.

AP Racing's CP8350 Calipers and 325mm J Hook Discs have been flogged over many thousands of miles and have won championships on the Chevrolet Corvette (C5 / C6), as well as the Toyota 86 / Subaru BRZ.

Purpose-built for race applications, our CP8350 kits offer a host of advantages on the track versus the stock brakes:

  • Approximately 12 lbs. of unsprung weight reduction from the 350Z's front axle vs. OEM brakes
  • Clears popular track wheels as small as 17" in diameter
  • Four-piston CP8350 calipers use a 20mm thick, commonly available brake pad shape
  • 325x32mm, 70 vane AP Racing J Hook Discs with metallurgy specifically designed to handle the temps typically seen on track offer a long service life
  • AP Racing calipers are the stiffest, lightest, and most technologically advanced calipers available at any price
  • Stainless steel pistons keep heat out of the brake fluid and provide an ultra-firm pedal
  • Anodized caliper finish that is resistant to wear and deterioration at elevated temperatures
  • High temperature, low drag seals that will hold up to track temps= less rebuilding and longer service life
  • Simple pad change with one bolt and no caliper removal required
