Our kit seamlessly replaces your factory 8-piston calipers with a lightweight Forged 6-Piston Caliper kit, delivering a substantial enhancement in pedal modulation and stopping performance. Elevate your driving experience with the NEUSPEED 6-Piston Big Brake Kit.
CNC Machined & Forged Aluminum Caliper Body
The NEUSPEED Caliper sets the benchmark with its construction from CNC machined Forged 6061-T6 aluminum alloy. Leveraging the forging process, the material grain structure undergoes realignment, resulting in exceptional strength and notable weight reduction when compared to both casted and billet calipers. This meticulous engineering ensures not only robust performance but also a significant advancement in the realm of braking technology.
Stainless Steel Pistons
Our pistons, crafted from high-quality Stainless-Steel metals, surpass their aluminum counterparts in both strength and rigidity. This choice of material not only enhances durability but also mitigates expansion during intense motorsport and competition driving scenarios.
Internal Seals System
NEUSPEED Calipers boast a cutting-edge design with dual internal piston seals. The hydraulic seals, crafted from high-temperature-resistant composite material, exhibit remarkable resilience against fatigue from regular daily use and endure the rigors of high-temperature competition scenarios. Reinforcing the system's durability, the second seal, also composed of the same material, provides a protective barrier against external contaminants like dust and moisture. This innovative 'Internal Dust Seal' system stands as a superior alternative to the conventional external shield/boot system, ensuring unmatched durability and performance.
NEUSPEED, as a dedicated VW/Audi tuning company, takes precision to a new level with calipers meticulously engineered to seamlessly pair with VAG factory master cylinders. In stark contrast to other brake manufacturers, we refrain from a one-size-fits-all approach by carefully selecting and tuning our 6-piston calipers to cater specifically to each VW and Audi model. This attention to detail prevents the issues associated with mismatched caliper sizes, such as a spongy or overly sensitive pedal feel. Our commitment to precision ensures optimal pedal modulation, allowing for precise and responsive braking points—a crucial element in elevating your driving experience.
Quick Pad Change System
The NEUSPEED caliper, crafted by enthusiasts for enthusiasts, prioritizes convenience and efficiency in its design. At the forefront of our engineering considerations is the ability to swiftly and conveniently swap brake pads. Facilitating this seamless process is the removable bridge-pin and pins system, enabling users to swap pads without the need to remove the caliper entirely. With a straightforward procedure involving unbolting the top bridge, undoing the guide pins, and sliding out the pads, the entire operation takes a mere 15 minutes. Experience the ease of maintenance and customization with NEUSPEED – where every detail is designed to enhance the enthusiast experience.
Pad Wear Sensor Compatible (If Equipped)
The NEUSPEED big brake kit seamlessly integrates with the VW/Audi factory sensor kit, eliminating the need for users to splice and bridge the sensor connector to prevent error lights on the dashboard. This ensures a genuine OEM replacement experience.
Aerospace Grade Mounting Bracket
Crafted from steel metal, this component features a protective black epoxy coating designed to safeguard against corrosion and degradation.
Each NEUSPEED Brake Kit encompasses stainless steel braided PTFE core brake lines, accompanied by stainless steel fittings. The kit is further complemented with stainless steel bleeder valves, guide pins, connecting tube, and robust 12.9-grade mounting bolts for a comprehensive and high-performance braking solution.
Cerakote Coating Options
We highly recommend the utilization of Cerakote H-Series Coatings for our calipers and brake kits. For detailed information regarding color options and coating resistances, please refer to the provided technical data sheet below. It is important to note that the color stability temperature ranges mentioned are WITHOUT clear coat. If a clear coat is applied, these temperatures can be exceeded. Kindly be advised that the CUSTOM CERAKOTE OPTION is considered a final sale.
