The TAROX Bespoke range is a unique service which has grown in popularity with the increase in sports sedans and sports cars’ use of a racing style brake systems and the decline in availability of parts for classic and rare models. The use of sliced rolled steel billets allow us to work without relying on cast, enabling the recreation of any brake rotor, whether it is a small single piece rotor with a plain surface for a concours classic or a slotted two-piece replacement for something more performance oriented.
Using steel billets as the foundation from which the manufacturing can begin does not only afford us manufacturing flexibility – the gains in performance are significant. When finished, a pair of TAROX Bespoke rotors will have Ultimate Tensile Strength of 3200lbs per square inch; more than double the CEE standard of 1400lbs. 40+ years of braking experience ensures we will find a solution for your braking needs.
F2000 Brake Rotors
The F2000 pattern evolved from a racing-specific rotor into our road range. With the big power increases of modern-day sport sedans and hot hatchbacks, combined with the increasing popularity of track days, there was a demand for a rotor which could cope with high operating temperatures and punishing conditions.
The F2000, first developed for use in touring cars approximately 20 years ago and often found in the TAROX range of big brake kits, has forged a reputation as the toughest performance aftermarket brake rotor available. We have even recently observed a number of high-end vehicle manufacturers offering rotors with a style very similar to our F2000 pattern on their range topping models.
Spiral slots are the perfect compromise of cooling and integrity: the F2000 will feature between 7 and 9. As with all TAROX rotors, the F2000 is manufactured using only the highest quality materials and features the unique TAROX heat treatment for strength and durability, final hand balancing for the smoothest finish ensuring perfect contact and a quick bedding-in process and finished with an anti-rust treatment.
Sport Japan Brake Rotors
As the name implies, the Sport Japan was originally designed for the Japanese market, where performance and tough looks are essential.
Sport Japan rotors are one of a decreasing number of aftermarket performance rotors to still feature fully-drilled holes, which is one of the most effective ways of venting hot gases from the brake surface. Although effective, this is an aggressive method of dissipating heat. To ensure ultimate performance and durability all Sport Japan rotors feature countersunk holes strategically placed so as not to affect the rotor’s structural integrity. This method is much more effective than a dimple, as the gas actually leaves the rotor surface into the ventilation channels in the center and away from the surface, ensuring the rotor runs cooler for longer.
An additional 6 slots on the braking surface act like a wiper, keeping the brake pad from glazing and removing excess dust while providing additional cooling. All Sport Japan rotors are manufactured using only the highest quality materials and feature the unique TAROX heat treatment for strength and durability, final hand balancing for the smoothest finish ensuring perfect contact and a quick bedding-in process and finished with an anti-rust treatment.
Note: TAROX uses industry leading methods for producing our drilled rotors, however, the fact is that any drilled hole will increase the risk of a rotor suffering from cracking. If you plan to use an aggressive pad and/or plan to use your vehicle on track, we recommend that you opt for a non-drilled rotor, ideally F2000.
ZERO Brake Rotors
Although plain in appearance, TAROX ZERO rotors are far from a stock performing part. All ZERO rotors are made from specialized, high grade materials, submitted to several levels of heat treatment. An outstanding resistance to high temperatures combats warping and cracks. The final hand finishing leaves them incredibly smooth allowing them to mate to pads efficiently, increasing the life of both rotor and pad, and are completed with an anti-rust treatment.
The ZERO has proved highly successful in both circuit racing – where regulations do not allow modified brake systems – as well as group N competition.
Regular use in international Endurance racing saw the ZERO last up to twice as long as a regular plain rotor. Aesthetically, this is our recommended pattern for all classic car applications.
