Rotora Front 2pc 13in Big Brake Kit Volvo S40/V50 04.5-2006 <br>Model: RBK072.01 <br> <br> <br>Rotora Front 2pc 13in Big Brake Kit Volvo S40/V50<br>Rotora Big Brake Kit 2 Piece System: 13 inch! <p>Fully cast and CNC machined to ensure the highest quality; Rotora's high performance brake system enables superior brake modulation while improving overall pedal feel to ensure equal distribution of weight transfer when braking. Rotora's high performance brake system is comprised of a set of cross-drilled/slotted vented disc 330mm by 30mm. Includes a set of high performance (4 pistons) calipers (red or blue of your choice), carbon steel (S45C) mounting brackets, Rotora ceramic friction material race pads, and stainless-steel braided brake lines (D.O.T. compliant). <p>All Rotora brake systems are direct bolt on replacement with minimal modifications required.<p>FEATURES and BENEFITS:<br>-Stainless steel braided brake lines prevent brake hose expansion under pressure and improve stiffer pedal feel. All Rotora?s steel braided lines meet D.O.T. Compliance Standards and pressure tested to meet FMVSS-106 (Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards) standard.<br>-Cross drilled/slotted or slotted rotors to ensure equal heat dissipation for continuous hard braking to resist warping and brake fade while relieving the rotor and brake pad surface free of excess brake dust and debris.<br>-S45C carbon steel mounting brackets (depending on application) with steel studs to provide added strength. Direct bolt on replacement to the vehicle's original suspension. <br>-Larger rotor surface area compared to stock rotor to utilize the leverage and increase brake torque. <br>-All systems are ABS compatible. <br>-All pistons with dust seals. <br>-All Rotora high performance brake calipers are factory pre-installed.<p>Available in Blue or Red Color. Slotted or Drilled and Slotted Rotors. Please select below your options.<br> <br>

Is there a recommended brake master cylinder upgrade to increase clamping force or is this strictly an anti-fade mod?<p>Also, does this upgrade preseve the stock brake bias in order to ensure that the ABS systems work properly? <br>-Chris

Re: (quick)

i hope its only an anti fade mod..<br>..without a corresponding set of rear brake upgrades, increasing front brake force without the rears is not a good idea..
