LOS ANGELES (February 2009) – Centric Parts, a leading manufacturer and supplier of aftermarket brake components and systems for everyday cars, performance duty vehicles and ultra performance vehicles, cruised past the 40,000 parts milestone this month with the release of StopTech Big Brake Kits for the 2009 Dodge Challenger muscle car.
“Centric Parts has come a long way since its first catalog in 2000 with 15,000 parts,” stated Dan Lelchuk, president of Centric Parts. “The Centric Parts additions of StopTech as our ultra-performance division in 2006 and Power Slot as our performance division in 2007 gave our catalog a boost, but constant growth since then has brought us to this 40,000 parts milestone.”
StopTech offers Big Brake Kit upgrades featuring their patented brake technology for the 2009 Dodge ChalllengerCentric Parts’ expansive catalog now boasts over 40,000 braking system parts supporting nearly every make and model from passenger cars to medium duty trucks manufactured since 1937. The specific items that pushed Centric Parts over the 40,000 milestone were a collection of Big Brake Kits (BBKs) from StopTech for both the SRT-8 and R/T version of the 2009 Dodge Challenger. 
StopTech’s BBKs feature Centric Parts’ patented technology to produce rock solid calipers and ingeniously efficient heat handling rotors supported by stainless steel lines that reduce system compliance. The result is shorter stopping distances, better brake modulation, firmer pedal feel and less brake fade resulting in stronger, more reliable performance. StopTech pioneered producing BBKs with a front-to-rear brake force ratio that exactly matches front-to-rear weight distribution for each make and model, making the company the leader in balanced brake upgrades.
Many notable product releases from Centric Parts throughout 2008 fueled the company’s march to the 40,000 parts achievement. These included StopTech’s track-only Trophy BBKs for serious racing performance as well as Power Slot’s award winning Power Alloy rotors which feature superior performance and durability in an entry-level, single-piece design.
