Los Angeles (November 2008) – StopTech, a leading manufacturer, supplier and innovator of world class brake components and brake systems for production-based race cars and high performance vehicles on the street and track, today announced the release of 355mm front and rear Big Brake Kit (BBK) upgrades for the 2008 Lancer Evolution X, Mitsubishi’s tenth generation of the car that won four consecutive World Rally Championships.
The front kit (part #83.625.6700.xx) for the 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X, commonly referred to as the Evo X by enthusiasts, comes with a pair of forged, six piston, patented ST-60 calipers, slotted or drilled floating directional 355x32mm AeroRotors with billet aluminum AeroHats, both also awarded patents, billet aluminum mounting brackets, DOT-compliant stainless steel braided Teflon brake lines, and high performance street pads.  The rear kit (part #83.625.0047.xx) features the same lineup using a pair of forged, four piston, patented ST-40 calipers.
StopTech’s BBKs provide shorter stopping distances, better brake modulation, firmer pedal feel and less brake fade resulting in stronger, more reliable performance. StopTech’s BBKs achieve this through larger rotors that increase heat capacity and dissipation coupled with stiffer calipers and stainless steel lines that reduce system compliance.
StopTech already stocks BBKs for the Evo VIII and Evo IX, as well as many of the other iterations of the 2002+ Mitsubishi Lancers including the ES, LS, Ralliart, Sportback, and O.Z. Rally Edition.
StopTech was the first to offer balanced brake upgrades for production cars and remains the worldwide leader with over 600 platform offerings to dramatically improve overall braking performance.  StopTech’s industry leading technologies and materials, from rock solid calipers to ingeniously efficient heat handling rotors, result in shorter stopping distances, better brake modulation, and less brake fade. StopTech products can be purchased through automotive aftermarket parts stores, suppliers and online retailers. Check with retailers for pricing.
