Stoptech Trophy Sport BBK for BMW 1M

"StopTech’s Trophy Brake Systems take our experience and successes from our racing program and deliver on-track performance with no compromise,” said Dan Lelchuk, president of Centric Parts. “As far as the brakes go, you provide the pads and the track, and a StopTech Big Brake Kit provides the rest for your stock or tuned performance production car.”

These racetrack and competition brake systems come with StopTech’s new Trophy STR lightweight forged calipers in four- or six-piston configurations and include the option of a quick release version of the StopTech patented bridge. These “track only” calipers feature the same metallurgy and design of the StopTech ST-40 and ST-60 calipers, but are engineered to provide a 20-percent reduction in weight without sacrificing stiffness or performance. “Every race team out there is obsessed with shaving off weight, no matter what the sport, and StopTech’s Trophy STR racing calipers do just that,” said Dino Crescentini, CEO of Centric Parts and race car driver in the SCCA World Challenge Series on The SPEED Channel.

StopTech Trophy Big Brake Kits include the company’s patented AeroRotors, engineered to increase airflow by 11 percent for better cooling and performance. Unique to the Trophy Brake Systems is full-floating mounting hardware, which eliminates pad knock-back. The patented, billet 7075 aluminum AeroHats create an additional 4 percent airflow, according to StopTech. Together, these technologies optimize the rotor system to provide even performance and consistent feedback to the pedal under the unique combination of hard cornering and braking found on the track.
These kits offer a 20% weight reduction over standard Stoptech calipers while maintaining the stiffness and performance.

Differences between standard and trophy kits:
•Natural, hard anodized finish of the calipers (lighter, no paint to fade)
•Stoptech logo engraved, and tastefully painted.
•Natural, hard anodized finish of brake rotor hat (more resistant to discoloration from heat)
•Rotors available only in slotted configuration

Included in the Trophy STR big brake system:
•Forged, STR calipers
•Floating, slotted rotors
•Stainless steel brake lines, 100% leakdown tested to 2500PSI
•Engineered caliper brackets
•StopTech Street Performance brake pads (track pads available at extra cost)

Stoptech Trophy Sports are made to order brake systems and usually has a 4-6 weeks of lead time.

I can't wait to get mine. I've been waiting 6 weeks already and finally they came to my freight forwarder yesterday

Thanks Harold!

As ABP are STOPTECH UK dealers it would be rude for me not to consider fitting these on my 1M at some point......

I have STOPTECH BBK on my Civic Type R track car and they are fantastic!

Would there be any interest in ABP potentially bringing these 1M Trophy kits in for UK 1M owners?

Can't see the point when we've got AP and Alcon "on our doorstep" Chris ?

The 380mm ST kit is cheaper than the equivalent AP, but by the time you've paid shipping and import duty, I'd have thought there's not a lot in it ?

The ST kits do look excellent quality, but are they really any better than AP or Alcons ?

Agree that we have AP on our doorstep but availability on AP products is a nightmare. Thats why we initially got involved with importing Stoptech around 8 years ago.

The kits in our opinion are better than the AP and are far more suited to road use because of the piston seals and dust boots they use. We've had AP kits come back needing re-builds after 2 years of UK road use!

Loads of data and opinion online comparing the benefits of different manufacturer kits so ultimately the choice is a personal one and sometimes based purely on price or even cosmetic appearence!

We can certainly supply the STOPTECH 1M kits into the UK market at competitive prices. They have various options available not just these TROPHY kits.

Let me look at some pricing if anyone is interested?

Chris

Yep, agree on lead times for the AP kits Chris. I enquired about a kit for the 1M last year and was quoted 10 weeks delivery.

Alcon are quoting roughly the same lead times, but the Alcon stuff is better suited to road useage (especially for all year round use)
