Product Update: STILLEN 370Z BRAKE COOLING KIT

March 20, 2012

STILLEN is proud to announce the release of the new brake cooling option for 370Z owners looking to improve track times and lower brake temperatures.

These kits can be used with both Stillen Sport Rotors and Metal Matrix brake pads, AP Racing Brake Kits, and other 370Z Brakes

The efficient design of the STILLEN 370z brake cooling kit can lower brake surface temperatures by as much as 25%.  Or as much as  140F. (Yeah that’s a lot of heat).  The best part about this kit is it can be used with just about any brake set up and it works perfectly with the STILLEN 370Z front bumper or the Stock 370z front bumper, WITHOUT any cutting.

We spared no expense in the quality of components of this kit, from the High Temperature hoses to the CNC machined stainless steel mounting brackets. We made sure that everything fit perfectly and worked perfectly.

After we made sure all the components of the kit fit properly, we decided to take our test vehicle to the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, CA for some serious testing.

We installed the 370z Brake Cooling kit on one side of the vehicle and left the other side untouched. We then installed temperature sensors on both sides of the vehicle to give us our comparison figures.

The results ended up being much better than we expected, and we saw a difference in over 140 F between the two sides.  In case you’re wondering what the advantages of running cooler brakes are, here’s a quick list:

• Decrease in braking distance – Reduction in brake fade

• Prevents warping – Reduced chance of pad glazing – Extends life of brakes

• Reduces the chance of brake fluid boiling

• Decreases the chance of catastrophic damage to brake system

• Improved track time and longer track sessions

Below is an illustration on how brake discs vent out heat under operating conditions, as you can see from the illustration, brake temperatures will substantially increase under periods of prolonged use. Our 370z Brake Cooling kit is specifically designed to reduce brake surface temperatures by supplying a constant stream of fresh air to the brake rotor, allowing it to vent out heat more efficiently.

From weekend warriors to the occasional autocross 370z owners, The STILLEN 370z Brake Cooling Kit is sure to become a “must have” item.

March 19, 2012

Before this picture was taken, Steve had said that he was planning on taking it easy during the Rally and just enjoying the drive. Looks like “easy” includes strapping a set of wings on a GT40 and letting it fly.
Steve and Jodi, did a fantastic job during the Rally and the husband and wife team put the STILLEN FORD GT into second in class, third in two wheel drive modern, and sixth place overall. They also won the award for highest placed husband and wife team.

Congratulations Guys!!
