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!
