WHERE PERFORMANCE MEETS PERFECTION.
We’re excited to confirm our newest caliper to join the Nashin family of performance brake upgrades is now available, the CUP-SERIES.
The CUP-SERIES builds on our extensive experience with creating exceptionally rigid, high-performance brake upgrades and takes both weight-saving and aesthetics to a whole new level.
The CUP-SERIES is based around a precision machined forged monoblock caliper which not only delivers when it comes to phenomenal stopping performance, it also boasts some pretty impressive weight-saving credentials - the 6-pot version tipping the scales at just 2.3kg, then there’s the undeniable aesthetic improvement too.
WHAT'S STOPPING YOU?
As with all other brake kits in our range, the CUP-SERIES has no exceptions when it comes to choice. With either a 4-, or 6-pot configuration available together with disc sizes from 330mm to 400mm in a floating disc arrangement and for those wanting to explore the ultimate in stopping performance, carbon ceramic discs are also now available as part of our CUP-SERIES range.
THE PINNACLE OF DESIGN
BUILT TO LAST
Our CUP-SERIES calipers feature a brand new design that not only incorporates enhanced rigidity over previous caliper designs, it also features an enhanced ability to dissipate heat build up.
As always with our brake discs and rotors, material choice plays a key element to ensuring the perfect Performance Brake Kit. Here at Nashin we choose to use a more expensive T6-6066 raw alloy material from which to produce our caliper bodies. T6-6066 provides improved durability over the more common T6-6061 and is less likely to deform when subject to extreme temperature changes.
YOU CAN RELY ON.
THE ART OF PRECISION
ENDURANCE IS KEY
With any brake system, strength is always the key to reliable continuous stopping power.
In addition our brake caliper pistons follow a strict T651 heat treatment process which takes over twice the time of standard heat treatments. This improved process ensures the pistons are far stronger and more resilient to the harsh conditions associated with braking.
BRAKE PADS TO SUIT YOUR DRIVING STYLE
Each Nashin Performance Brake Kit is available to order with a choice of brake pad material, each designed for different driving styles or environments.
// Eco Pads - Our entry level brake pad and standard issue in all of our brake kits. Designed for fast road and occasional track days our green pad offers similar characteristics to a standard road pad with low dust emmitance and respectable initial bite from low temperature. High temp fade resistance is improved when compared to the OE brake pad offering an improved platform for fast road and occasional track day use.
// Sports Pads - Designed once again for fast road and track days our silver pads offer an improved initial bite with extended high temperature fade resistance against the green option, however as a result the level of brake dust emitted is increased as well as increased noise levels.
// Sports + Pads - Produced with competition in mind our red pads have been specifically created for track / circuit use. Providing an impressive bite from the moment the flag drops our red pads will continue to perform even when the temperatures rise! Not suitable for road use.
// Competition Pads - The ultimate pads created for high level competition use, where continuous heavy braking and excessive brake temperatures are a common factor. With a high ceramic content our gold pads are formulated to be at their optimum performance capability between 270°C - 800°C. Not suitable for road use.
// RC5 + - Developed for light weight vehicles or racing in low grip conditions (street tires, gravel, mud, snow, water, etc.). An excellent track day compound, it offers moderate friction levels, low noise, is easy on OEM discs, and has excellent cold stopping power. Additionally, it can be used on the rear axle of vehicles to change the brake bias where standard bias adjustment is not possible.
// RC6 - Designed to apply to a wide range of motorsports, from rally to circuit. It has a high and very flat friction level and can be used successfully in almost every type of race car. Low compressibility provides a stiff pedal which greatly increases feedback and allows for easier modulation. It can also be used in the front or rear axle combined with the RC8 or RC5 to adjust bias.
// RC6 + - the RC6+ was designed to offer very low pad and disc wear rates without sacrificing friction levels. Need pads to last 6, 12 or even 24 hours? Look no further than RC6+.
// RC8 - The RC8 compound boasts Nashin Brakes highest friction level and is used in top-tier motorsports such as WRC, WTCC, NASCAR, ZA V8, AWD GrpN, etc. Extremely high friction levels allow shorter stopping distances and the flat torque curve provides excellent modulation to prevent wheel lockup.
The RC8 was designed to be used only with other CL Brakes compounds.
FOUR SIX OR EIGHT?
CALIPER'S FOR EVERY SIZE.
A RANGE OF CALIPER'S TO SUIT YOUR WHEEL SIZE
We offer a wide range of caliper and rotor sizes under our Cup Series range.
The smallest caliper we offer is a four piston (known as the N1 or N3 arrangement), then moving to a six (N5 & N7) and finally an eight piston caliper (N9) with each size dependant on the performance level required and your vehicles wheel size.
In addition we offer the option of one piece solid discs or alternativly bell and rotor, two piece floating disc arrangement.
Our application guide clarifies the available options available for your vehicle.
