Tarox Sport Japan Brake Discs/Rotors - BMW MINI
Tarox is one of the world’s leading specialist brake manufactures with an illustrious heritage extending right back to their early involvement in F1.
Since the early 1980’s Tarox brake discs have been associated with absolute quality. Blank casts used for Tarox discs, after having passed stringent quality controls, are subjected to structural stress relieving heat treatment at the end of each machining phase as a result of more than 30 years experience. Facing is performed on CNC turning machines or - in the case of G88 discs - on in house custom built machinery. Another distinguishing feature of Tarox brake discs is their perfectly level surface machined to a tolerance approaching 0.015 mm, achieved during the final finishing of the braking surfaces on grinding machines; each disc is ground individually by a specialist operator resulting, in that distinctive shining look. Tarox discs work best when coupled with Tarox pads which have been expertly formulated to deliver optimum performance with heat treated discs.
The G88 is probably the best known of all Tarox discs and the most instantly recognisable with its multiple radial grooves on the braking surface of the discs. These grooves are designed to generate a turbine effect which dissipates heat build up, allowing the discs to run cooler and reducing the possibility of warping, vibration or cracking. All G88 discs are heat treated for strength, hand finished to ensure the smoothest possible braking surface and TÜV approved.
These Tarox G88 discs are an ideal upgrade for any BMW Mini Cooper owner looking to improve overall braking power without the cost implications of a big brake kit. These discs are able to withstand a lot more abuse than the standard OEM items and coupled with the Ferodo DS 2500 pads will ensure you can brake later into bends thus improving lap times. This excellent combination of discs and pads will also help to eliminate the spongy pedal feel.
