Racing brake system components to make sure you have consistent and repeatable performance in every brake zone. Performance hi temperature brake fluid paired with track brake pads are a great way to make sure your track time goes exactly as planned. If you need more performance in your brake system, we offer everything from upgraded rotors made from higher quality metals to complete big brake kits to turn an afternoon in the garage to seasons of outbraking your competition.
Big brake kits are the best way to lower your lap times consisentently. Having repeatabily and predictability are the core features to make you have the ultimate in confidence in the deepest of brake zones, lap after lap. We feature the best in Big Brake Kits (BBK) from AP Racing, Brembo, Wilwood, Stoptech and more.
Correctly build your performance brake system with high performance brake calipers. OEM brake calipers are great for their street applications, but performance or track driving asks more than what your factory caliper was designed for. OEM Caliper flex causes not just uneven pad wear, but decreased braking performance. Racing brake calipers feature stainless steel pistons, upgraded and higher temperature seals and some calipers remove the dust boot to handle the highest of temperatures.
Brake cooling ducts and hose lowers your brake temperature by routing ram-air to your brake rotor and caliper. Using this non-horsepower robbing methid has been universally accepted even with the parasitic drag increase. Hold off rotor cracks and crumbled/cracked brake pads due to overtemperature and keep your racing budget in check. Having the correct racing brake ducts with the appropriately sized brake cooling hose is one of the most economical brake improvements you can make. Trust DiscoveryParts to make you go slower faster.
Compression...Fresh racing brake fluid has no air bubbles. When you step on the brake pedal, 100% of the force is transferred from the master cylinder(s) to the calipers. Old fluid, or even worse, overheated (boiled) fluid will have contaminants or air bubbles that compress, taking away your brake force and performance. Hopefully a longer brake distance is all that is encountered, not a trip into the gravel trap and the ensuing splitter damage or even worse - hitting the wall.
A swap to performance brake fluid is one of the most economical performance improvements a track car can have. Performance per dollar, brake fluid is #1. Brake fluid maintenance should be one of the driver's top priorities before loading onto the trailer.
Brake Pads Have One Purpose - Turn Friction Into Heat. That's it. But it is not that easy. A heavy GT1 car with hi spring rates, aero upgrades and slicks can take a more aggressive pad than a street driven light car on street dot tires. At DiscoveryParts, we are racers who know that over 20% of your lap is on the brake pedal. Let us help you get not only a 1/10 of a second a lap but more than that of every lap. We offer the best in racecar brake pads from Carbotech, Hawk, Pagid, and Performance Friction. Not sure what compound is right for not only your car but your driving style?

Brake Rotors for your street performance car or dedicated track only race car.. Having a big engine and trick suspension is really nice, but being able to stop it all quickly is much more important. Brake rotors are an important component in the braking system that stops your vehicle. Some people may be surprised to learn that the brake rotors are just as important to stopping their vehicle as the brake pads are. We have your high performance brake rotors.
All the little and important pieces to complete your brake installation are here. The difference is in the details. Those details are what make a top podium position possible. Low quality or poor installation, or worse - a combination of both - can not only take you off the front row, but into the frame shop. Be smart, logical, and plan your brake system once and enjoy many years of reliable racing.
