Essex - AP Racing Competition Brake Kit (Sprint) for the Subaru BRZ - Scion FR-S
AP Racing / Essex Competition Sprint Brake System for the Subaru BRZ - Scion FR-S
These cars were designed from the ground up as a pure sports car. Light weight, front engine, and rear drive all combine to offer a great driving experience on the street. On track with sticky tires, they're laying down lap times on par with what are supposed to be much faster cars. These cars were also designed with the aftermarket in mind. Many features of the car are rather basic to keep costs down, and the brakes are one of those areas. They're heavy, not particularly attractive, and leave a lot of performance on the table when track temperatures soar.
Not all brake systems are created equal. In fact, most “big brake kits” aren’t really suited towards heavy track use. While they (usually) increase thermal capacity and may solve small fading issues, they generally aren’t optimized for hardcore track use. AP Racing and Essex set out to design a brake package that can take anything you throw at them...and then some.
