Are Brembo Gran Turismo (GT) big brake kits available for my car?

Brembo manufactures GT big brake kits for most European and American cars, SUVs and pickup trucks. 

Brembo also manufactures GT big brake kits for most popular Japanese and Korean performance cars.


Sadly, there are very few GT Kit applications for Japanese and Korean SUVs and pickups, especially for Asian-market models. Brembo does not have big brake kit products for popular models like the Toyota Fortuner and Hi-Lux, Nissan Terra and Navara, and even Ford Everest and Ranger. If you find Brembo big brake kits in the market being sold for these vehicles, they are very likely to be counterfeit.

What is better? Cross-drilled or slotted brake discs?

It depends on how you use your car.


Cross-drilled discs are slightly lighter than drilled discs, dissipate heat faster,are better at water dispersion and make less noise. They are slightly less durable than slotted discs in the most extreme conditions, but more that strong enough for even track use. This is usually best for road cars, or cars that see some action on a racetrack.


Slotted discs can shave off the top layer of the brake pad, ensuring fresh friction material contacts with the disc. This means more immediate stopping power. It is also slightly sturdier than drilled discs. However, they do shorten the lifespan of your brake pads, especially when used for repeated heavy braking. These are more suitable for more track-focused cars, or race cars. In addition, Brembo offers several slot patterns - each designed for specific motorsport disciplines.

What is the temperature range of Brembo Performance brake pads?

Before we answer this question, temperature range does not address performance or stopping power. All it does is state at what operating temperatures brake pads are at their best in. This is not a good basis for choosing brake pads unless you are in professional racing.

Brembo does not publish temperature ranges for its line of replacement or sport-performance brake pads. They are, however, tested for use from snowy conditions to summers in the desert, meaning they are designed to work in any temperature you will encounter on the road or track.

If you are choosing brake pads for professional motorsport, Brembo has several pad compounds - each specifically engineered for specific racing disciplines. CONTACT US for racing-specific brake requirements, and our team of motorsport professionals will assist you.

IMPORTANT NOTE: racing brake pads ARE NOT suitable for road use, and are not approved for street use. Racing brake pads may have minimum operating temperature in their temperature range are not suitable normal driving conditions. In most cases professional motorsport brake pads will require warming up the brakes to work properly - usually with tire warmers, or by applying the brakes in the warmup or parade lap before a race.
