RacingLine Monoblock Brake Kit 345MM for MQB Cars
All the power in the world is next to useless if your stock brakes aren’t up to it! The Racingline Monoblock Brake Kit is an ultra-durable, fast-road and track solution developed exclusively for VW Group cars.
Racingline have designed these brakes from decades of motorsport experience. As a result, they provide continued outstanding stopping power and improved braking responsiveness – all at an affordable price.
The Monoblock one-piece construction is usually reserved for the highest-specification motorsport kits, being vastly stiffer and lighter than many factory-fit calipers. The Monoblock Brake Kit also comes in at almost half the weight of OEM parts.
For example, the caliper, pads and bracket assembly for the VW Golf R Mk.7 weigh in at 4.4kg (9.7lb), compared to 8.6kg (18.9lb) for the factory-standard equipment. A bigger, 345mm ‘triple-grove’ brake disc also gives greater heat capacity, thus reducing the effect of brake 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. Their extensive development programme on piston sizes gives beautiful progressive pedal feel – and that’s because they only develop brakes for VW Group cars.
About the Monoblock Construction
The ‘Monoblock’ construction of Racingline’s 4-piston aluminium thin-profile calipers give extreme stiffness and are lightweight, aiding in wheel clearance packaging.
Grooved & Vented Brake Discs
The discs, with integral mounting bells, use Racingline’s ‘Triple Groove’ design across the face for an improved bite and debris clearance.
Improved Brake Disc Quality
Racingline’s brake discs made from high cast carbon – a mixture of high-quality steel combined with carbon; giving a far higher friction coefficient compared to normal steel rotors.
VWG-Specific Brake Parts
Racingline’s brake kits are engineered exclusively for VW Group cars, with piston sizes matched to master cylinders and servos for perfect responses. A full kit of supporting bells, brackets and lines are also included with the kit.
Sport Brake Pads
Composite Ceramic Sport Pads are included with the ideal compound for fast-road and track use. Unusually for a brake upgrade kit, we’ve included pad wear sensor.
Full Install Kit Included
Everything you need for the installation of the brake kit is included: including discs, calipers, mounting brackets, fast road pads, braided steel lines. Simply bolt-on – then drive!
Saving unsprung weight is really important on a performance car. All those heavy masses on the ‘road-side’ of your springs – the wheels, tyres, suspension arms and of course brakes – make a massive difference to the car’s responses as it turns and handles bumps in the road, differences you can really feel as a driver.
Racingline have spent an incredible amount of development and design time making sure that their Performance Brake Kit cuts as much weight out as possible. The Monoblock aluminium construction is the key to this saving – a single piece calliper is stronger, stiffer and can, therefore, be lighter than equivalent 2- piece calipers.
