STILLEN OFFERS NEW AP RACING
2008-2010 BMW M3 (E9x)
FRONT AND REAR BIG BRAKE KITS

Features innovative Strap Drive System for road and track day applications

Costa Mesa, Calif. AP Racing, the braking technology choice of professional race teams worldwide (including Rahal Letterman IMSA ALMS GT2 M3, BMW Motorsports FIA GT2 M3, etc), has introduced front and rear Big Brake System for the 2008-2010 BMW M3 (E9x). Available from the Brake Pros product division of STILLEN, these new brake upgrades fit most 18″ and 19″ OE wheels. They are compatible with OE ABS, traction control, stability systems and factory brake master cylinder.

Front systems may be ordered with AP Racing’s newly updated 6-piston CP5555 calipers finished in black (AP7100), red (AP7100R) — or — limited-edition Comp Gray (AP7100G). For optimum mechanical and thermal balance, complimentary rear systems are advised. The rear systems are supplied with AP Racing’s new CP5306 4-piston calipers in matching colors (AP7150 / AP7150R / AP7150G).

Manufactured for maximum stopping power and minimum brake fade, the kit offers high performance braking capability with race proven technology and comes complete with calipers, rotors, brake pads, coated stainless steel braided brake lines and all necessary mounting hardware for immediate bolt-on.

Two-piece modular rotors float on an aluminum hat and have 72 directionally curved vanes to maximize cooling in extreme brake situations. Both front and rear rotors are available in a cross-drilled and slotted pattern for an aggressive pad bite and better face cooling or can be purchased slotted only for aggressive track use. The AP Racing Strap Drive System has been developed for both road and track day applications. It uses a series of stainless steel straps to locate the disc to the mounting bell, producing a flexible coupling between the hub and the disc faces. This allows the disc to run true in the caliper under all conditions and also permits the disc to expand and contract without being restricted.

Strong, durable and designed to withstand any punishment, AP Racing Brake calipers are manufactured with a lightweight, pressure cast aluminum alloy 2-piece body and finished with a hard anodized 2-part paint finish. This 2-piece design is more rigid than commonly available monoblock calipers. Differential piston bores eliminate pad taper and maximize braking efficiency, and the anti-rattle clip eliminates pad knock and noise. A fixed radial mount ensures minimal caliper flex for the best available brake feel under all operating conditions.

We’ve been getting tons of feedback for our 25th year in business and are just as excited as the Nissan and Infiniti owners who are making the journey (from 5 different states!) out to the STILLEN headquarters this weekend to help us celebrate. We’ve done our part to make this event special.  In our previous post we’ve outlined some details of the event (and they are recapped below), and we’re working hard to make this even even more special.

We’ve invited both the mainstream automotive media, as well as local media to this event, and are proud to announce we have a great lineup of editors coming out to take photos, film coverage of the event, AND also  scout for potential feature vehicles to cover.  This is your chance to be in your favorite magazine!  So far we have confirmations from the following:

In addition to all of the magazine and video coverage, we’ve also asked some selected partner vendors of ours to bring out their booths and new products and display at the show.  They will be on location in a new larger Vendor Row to show off everything new they have. We’ve also asked all of them to contribute prizes for the raffle that will be going on all day at the show.  There will be thousands of dollars in giveaways for you to win just for showing up and registering at the event which is free!  Current list of vendors are:
