VBT Hooked Discs are the latest disc face design by AP Racing. Vagbremtechnic adapted the initial design onto OEM discs for the following reasons.
1.They give improved bite
2. For high temperature track day use they give better debris clearance and reduces distortion vibration.
For road use we decided to opt for the version where the outer grooves do not run out to outside diameter but stay within the confines of the disc face. For road applications they also generate less noise than straight or curved groove discs and don't suffer the fatigue cracking that drilled disc users can experience after many heat cycles.
So win win for VBT Hooked, Vagbremtechnic also take a non handed OEM casting and LeftRight the VBT Hooked pattern to ensure temperature stability and an appropriately designed disc face for either the nearside or offside of the car to give a good gas path despite not using a handed casting. We've seen some real success on a budget with these discs especially when used with a four piston caliper upgrade.
Where they really come into their own though is when they're combined with a more capable set of brake pads - this is a real track day enabler and we find customers finding other weaker areas of their car such as tyres and suspension now that their car stops reliably again and again. VBT Hooked is the homologated disc face for BTCC and has been for three years.
Ferodo DS Performance Brake Pads:
This compound has been designed specifically for road use. It combines many of the characteristics found in a pure racing material (high friction, absence of fade) but has improved cold performance, and reduced disc wear and noise.
The key features of DS Performance are:
High friction coefficient (0.46 average)
Excellent disc life
Low wheel dust
Low heat transmission to caliper - thus avoiding fluid boil
DS Performance is recommended for road use only. R90 compliant (EU standard for road pads).
Whilst we do try to ensure all our brake kits fit behind the majority of wheel types both stock and aftermarket, we make no guarantees that they will. There is a chance you will need wheel spacers to clear our brake kits. Please take the appropriate steps to ensure wheel clearance before final installation.
