The Super Sport is an evolution of the original Sport kit. With the recent surge in the performance of sedans such as the M3 and S4 and the arrival of formidable "hot hatches" such as the VW Golf R and Ford Focus RS. TAROX developed a brand new caliper - the B360. Alongside the B34GT from our motorsport range this new caliper allows us to offer incredibly formidable kits capable of being used on the road or track. The Super Sport series of kits feature rotor sizes between 340mm and 370mm but when possible will still fit behind stock wheels.
These hugely capable kits will offer a huge amount of extra stopping power, better pedal feel and modulation, and can often reduce un-sprung weight increasing all aspects of handling while looking very striking. With amazing road usability and a proven record in competition the Super Sport kit is a necessary upgrade for the serious driver.
As with all TAROX kits the Super Sport range integrates with all modern day driving assistants such as ECS, ABS and dynamic driving aids. Each kit features;
- Hand assembled calipers machined from the highest quality billet alloy.
- Heat treated, CNC machined rotors in your choice of surface.
- Hard anodized alloy center hats.
- Brake pads in your choice of compound.
- CNC machined alloy mounting brackets with hardware.
- Braided & coated brake lines.

Ideal for street use and everyday driving.
Strada work great from cold and provide immediate response, without pre-heating, while also offering a higher coefficient of friction for improved braking power, improved resistance to high temperatures and a longer service life than O.E materials. They provide an excellent pedal feel and allow full control over braking for the driver.
Strada has been specifically designed to work with our heat treated hand finished range of performance brake rotors.
Capable of withstanding temperatures of up to 1100°F, this pad has an optimum temperature range of 400°F to 650°F.
Coefficient of friction:
Recommended for applications when immediate, positive braking action is required without warming up. The high coefficient of friction (0.47) gives fantastic pedal feel and great initial bite. Corsa 114 is able to withstand temperatures of up to 1450°F and has an optimum temperature range of 400°F to 470°F
Coefficient of Friction:
Suitable for GT racing, touring car, Formula & rally events. The technical objective for Enduro 118 was to provide a high friction output, to improve pad and rotor life and to offer excellent modulation throughout the braking event. Greater modulation means that the risk of wheel lock is significantly reduced compared to other pads with the same high nominal friction coefficient. Enduro 118 achieves this without any loss of output and represents the ultimate all round pad compound.
Coefficient of Friction:
Hot = 0.50μ
Normal = 0.47μ
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.
