Race Designed & Developed, Made by RacingLine Performance, best known for delivering the Volkswagen Racing motorsport programme since 1997, out of which was born the increasingly popular Motorsport & Performance Parts range, with all Race parts heavily Race designed, developed & tested, treat your pride and joy to the best there is with RacingLine Performance Parts.
All the power in the world is next to useless if your stock brakes aren’t up to it. Our RacingLine Monoblock Performance Brake Upgrade is an ultra-durable, fast-road & track solution developed exclusively for VWG cars. We’ve developed these brakes from our decades of motorsport experience, and, as you’d expect, they provide outstanding stopping power again and again. Yet, all at an affordable price.
Our lightweight Monoblock one-piece construction is usually reserved for the highest-specification motorsport kits, being vastly stiffer and lighter than the original calipers.
The kit comes in at almost half the weight of the original for significant unsprung mass savings. The caliper, pads and bracket assembly weigh in at 4.4kg (9.7lb) vs 8.6kg (18.9lb) for the factory Golf R kit.
A bigger, 345mm ‘triple-grove’ disc gives greater heat capacity, thus reducing the effect of fade.
Smart design features such as our ‘Tru-Loc’ hub adaptor system plus built-in pad-wear indicators are all part of RacingLine’s typical attention to detail.
Our extensive development programme on piston sizes gives beautiful progressive pedal feel – and that’s because (unlike many) we only develop brakes for VWG cars.
‘TRU-LOC’ HUB ADAPTOR SYSTEM
Fitment under your rims is often a challenge with a brake upgrade. Not with RacingLine’s brake kits.
Our unique ‘Tru-Loc’ hub adaptor system allows you to mechanically lock 5, 7 or 10mm hub adaptors into the centre bell. Meaning no need for loose spacers to be added (and approved in markets where spacers are illegal).
Changing your rims? Swapping from summer to winter wheels? No problem, select the appropriate ‘Tru-Loc’ adaptor width and carry on.
Braking upgrades aren’t really about the stopping difference for a single stop.
No, the main reason for using bigger brakes is to increasing the heat capacity when you’re stopping hard again and again. This really matters for repeated stopping when, say, you’re running hard down a mountain pass with no cool-down, or working the car hard around the track.
This really shows on our testing. After just five hard stops from 60mph (100kmh), the difference in stopping distance between stock Golf 7.5R brakes and the RacingLine Performance Brakes is getting really noticeable. The factory brakes are fading fast, the pedal is getting closer to the floor and all the ‘bite’ has gone. Increase the speeds, or do more heavy stops and the factory brake set up is really starting to get beyond its limits.
Meanwhile, the RacingLine brakes perform the same on stop 5 as they did on stop 1. The pedal is firm, the bite is still there, and the feel underfoot is still as reassuring as ever. And ready for more.
