Performance Brake Discs
Since the early 1980s TAROX Performance Brake Discs have been associated with absolute quality. Blank casts used for TAROX discs, after having passed stringent quality controls, are subjected to structural stress relieving heat treatment at the end of each machining phase as a result of more than 30 years experience.
Facing is performed on CNC turning machines or – in the case of G88 discs – on in house custom built machinery.
Another distinguishing feature of TAROX brake discs is their perfectly level surface machined to a tolerance approaching 0.015 mm, achieved during the final finishing of the braking surfaces on grinding machines; each disc is ground individually by a specialised operator resulting in that distinctive shining look.
TAROX discs work best when coupled with TAROX pads which have been specifically formulated to deliver optimum performance with heat treated discs.
F2000 Brake Discs
F2000 discs are the ideal solution for those who alternate the use of the car on the road with serious sessions on the track. The curved grooves on the braking surface deglaze the pads and allow the disc to run cooler.
Compared to G88 the F2000 discs feature less grooves which strike the perfect balance between heat dissipation and strength ensuring they cope with even the most demanding use on track.
All F2000 discs are based on original equipment specification, TUV approved castings, heat treated for strength and hand finished to ensure the smoothest possible braking surface. TAROX Corsa pads are their ideal partner for track day sessions.
G88 Brake Discs
The G88 is probably the best known of all TAROX discs and the most instantly recognisable with its multiple radial grooves machined into the disc surface using custom made machinery.
These grooves are designed to generate a turbine effect which dissipates heat build up, allowing the discs to run cooler and reducing the possibility of warping, vibration or cracking.
All G88 discs are based on original equipment specification, TUV approved castings, heat treated for strength, hand finished to ensure the smoothest possible braking surface and now many applications are TÜV and ABE approved by the German KBA.
Sport Japan Brake Discs
As the name implies Sport Japan discs were originally designed for the Japanese market where tough looks and high performance are important factors.
Sport Japan discs are now one of the only aftermarket performance discs to still feature fully drilled countersunk holes which are much more effective at venting gasses which cause brake fade than the more common dimples. 6 grooves on the braking surface keep pads from glazing.
All Sport Japan discs are based on original equipment specification, TÜV approved castings, heat treated for strength and hand finished to ensure the smoothest possible braking surface. Sport Japan discs are TÜV approved for most applications.
