      Another win on debut for Forza Brakes in the Australian market, with Gordon Moore taking a class win at the recent Leyburn Street sprint against stiff conpetiton! He was testing the FR6 pad for Brakes Direct having previously only been happy with Performance Friction PFC01. The FR6 had better bite and modulation from cold giving superior confidence!

    • DBA 4000 Series Rotors to suit X3 Excel Race Cars

      ATTENTION EXCEL CIRCUIT AND RALLY DRIVERS!

      Yet another Brakes Direct exclusive... DBA 4000 Series rotors to suit X3 Excel! When safety and performance matters, avoid the cheap imports and get a competition grade rotor!

      • Australian made
      • Thermographic temperature monitoring paint
      • XG150 High Carbon Alloyed Iron
      • TSP Thermal stability profiling to prevent high stress distortion
      • Far longer rotor life when used in competition compared to lower carbon non-heat treated trade servicing items!

      Available in both non-slotted (to meet CAMS series requirements) and T3 slotted! For a competition grade rotor, the pricing is ridiculous:

      • DBA 4000 Series Plain $140.80 per rotor
      • DBA 4000 Series T3 Slotted $148.50 per rotor

      Delivery is free Australia wide! Rotors are due into stock mid April, but with demand high and stock limited, pre-order now to avoid disappointment!

      To order, or for more information call us on 1300 724 943!

    • Brakes Direct to Launch Dual Gravel and Tarmac Rally Brake Package


      ATTENTION RALLY DRIVERS AND TEAMS!

      At Brakes Direct we're getting asked more and more for brake kits for 15" rims, and during a conversation with a customer recently we had the idea of doing a combined gravel/tarmac kit! Basically to switch between the two you would just need to change the bracket and rotor. It would be a shared caliper, which would massively save on costs (and spares) if you were running both surfaces!

      Right now we're taking expressions of interest in us developing this setup!

      Basic overview:

      • Will use Alcon's CRB332 caliper. This is a proper motorsport grade caliper and was the choice of Toyota in their recently developed R3 86 (See pics!). It has 2kg anti-knock back springs, is radial mount, removable bridge, very light etc...

      • The CRB332 takes disc diameters from 285mm to 332mm and thickness from 28-32mm. So the sizes we'd be looking at would be 296x28mm for gravel (15" rim min), and 330x32mm for tarmac (17" or a very good 16" rim min).

      • Rotors will be a DBA 2 piece with our motorsport spec 'NS' slot pattern.

      • At this stage would just be for Evo/WRX but would look at other kits depending on demand.

      • Price would be under $4k for the complete dual gravel/tarmac package including pads. Very good considering you're getting two pairs of two piece rotors, as well as brackets to match!

      • Price for just the gravel kit would be $3297. To get the parts later to upgrade to tarmac would be about $1500, so there's a bit of saving in ordering together!

      Any questions at all just let us know!
