Are JCW Brakes Brembo?
Are JCW Brakes Brembo?
This JCW Sport Brake kit made for MINI exclusively by Brembo.
Are brake kits worth it?
Big brake kits offer a lot better stopping power compared to stock or OEM brakes. Their larger size and disc area, coupled with grippier brake pads, will shorten stopping distances, too. When you combine these larger discs and rotors with braided brake cables, the results can be immensely satisfying.
What is a TRD brake kit?
The TRD high performance brake kit delivers confidence-inspiring performance, as well as improved stopping distance and enhanced pedal feel. A patented, directional AeroRotor internal cooling vane design induces greater airflow to cool the rotors, providing consistent performance in repeated or heavy duty braking.

- How do Performance Brakes Improve Braking Performance?
How long does a brake kit last?
Brake pads can last anywhere between 30,000 and 70,000 miles. The variance depends on your driving style and typical driving conditions. Using data provided by Federal Highway Administration statistics on how many miles people drive annually, typical brake pads will last between 3 and 7 years.
Do Big brake Kits Work?
A big brake kit will not increase the stopping power of a vehicle or decrease its stopping distance due to the physics involved. A larger brake pad will only spread out the clamping force of the brake caliper over a greater area.
How can I increase my brake power?
You can increase your vehicle’s stopping power and distance by increasing the size of your brake rotor. Even upgrading the size of the brake rotor by a diameter of 1” will make a difference.
What happens if you change brake pads but not rotors?
As a result, the new brake pads might not fit the old rotor perfectly. This mismatch creates brake noise and vibration and can cause uneven wear on the new brake pads (which will lead to premature brake pad replacement).
Why do rear brakes wear faster?
Usually, it’s the front ones that wear faster, NAPA explains. That’s because braking shifts the car’s weight forward, which means the front rotors need to be stronger, NAPA explains. But there is a reason why rear brake pads can wear faster than expected: traction control and electronic stability control.
Are bigger brakes worth it?
The common myth of a big brake kit is that your car will stop faster with larger pads and rotors because you have more surface area (thus more friction). The truth of the matter is that most likely, you already have more stopping friction in your stock brakes that you can use.
Are slotted rotors worth the extra money?
Slotted rotors do not improve any heat transfer. However, the slots can improve brake output by removing gas and dust that is trapped between the pad and rotor. Given the choice between drill holes and slots, the drill holes will give you better braking power over slots for normal city/highway driving.
What kind of calipers do JCW brakes use?
The JCW calipers are single piston, floating calipers. Honestly you would probably be better off getting a set of R56S stock brakes off someone that has upgraded… Click to expand… For a street car the JCW brake kit will be pretty good for the money, but it’s not a track kit.
What kind of brake kit do I need for a Mini Cooper?
The Brembo JCW MINI Cooper Big Brake Kit is one of the many MINI Cooper Parts and Accessories that we carry and will fit the following MINI Cooper Models and Years: Gen1 MINI: (installation on Gen1 MINIs will require modications as noted below)
Are there front and rear calipers in Brembo brakes?
One of the main attractions of this kit is that it includes front AND rear calipers, pads and rotors. For older MINIs this is a great value as you get fresh brakes all around for about the price of some kits that are ONLY for the front. Will most likely fit many other wheels with small wheel spacers sold separately.
