>>> HP Autowerks <<< First 1M Stoptech Trophy Big Brake Install

"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)

380 x 35 6 piston front
355 x 32 4 piston rear


Here is what all of you have been asking for you. Real numbers, WITH photos.

Total is about 12 lbs, but consider the Stoptech calipers and rotors are much larger(bigger heat sink), it's not bad.

If you were to opt for the smaller 355 x 35 kit with 4 piston front, you will save another 8 lbs or so.

Are you running cooling ducts to them and, if so, how?

Thanks.

No, there is no cooling ducts from the factory. However, the SleK 1M lips added cooling ducts to the from lip and will allow ducting behind it if you choose to add them.

What we have found in the past with these Stoptech Trophy Sports with race pads is that you don't really need much ducting to them unless you are running some sort of endurance events(not even at Laguna Seca). They run so cool and at certain tracks we found ourselves blocking the oem brake ducting(335i running 355x32 and 345x28) just to keep some heat in the pads so we have full braking power at the next turn. The 1M and M3 application is 380x35 and 355x32, that is a lot of thermal capacity and much larger heat sinks.
