Product Description:
The 034Motorsport 2-Piece Floating Brake Rotor Upgrade Kits for the Gen 1 & 1.5 Audi R8 are a complete replacement brake rotor kit, designed to work flawlessly with the factory front or rear calipers found on the Gen 1 & 1.5 Audi R8. While reducing weight, the rotor retains proper thermal mass in the rings to adequately capture heat, while utilizing 72 directionally curved vanes to forcefully flow cool air through the rotor to dissipate heat.
The central hat portion of the 034Motorsport rotor is made of 6061-T6 aircraft specification aluminum. The disc is constructed out of a proprietary metal alloy that can withstand immense braking temperatures while holding form. The rotor utilizes 72 directionally curved vanes to forcefully flow cool air through the rotor to dissipate heat.

The face of the rotor utilizes J-Slot slots to clean the pad and surface of contaminants and allows hot pad outgassing, all while reducing overall braking noise compared to a traditional slotted rotor.

The rotor and hat have a floating mount system that utilizes high-strength alloy steel bobbins. The pins take the load from braking actions while maintaining the axial and radial float between the hat and disc, allowing for safe expansion and contraction from heat.

Features:
  • Lightweight Construction
  • Floating, 2-Piece Design
  • Aerospace Grade Aluminum Hats
  • CM-250 Special Alloy Rotor Rings
  • J-slotted Friction Face
  • OEM Fitment & Functionality
  • 72 Curved Vanes Force Cooling Air through Brake Disc
  • Floating Bobbins Mounting System
  • Replaceable Rotor Rings
  • Lower Long-term Maintenance Cost

These 2-Piece Rotors are an excellent option for any R8 owner looking for a substantive upgrade over their stock braking performance. Pictured are the rotors right after a hot-lap session we had at Thunderhill West this last weekend. We had to take the front wheels off to get to our Adjustable Sway Bar to make an adjustment. This Sway Bar and more will be available shortly from us here at 034Motorsport!

When paired with our Upgraded Stainless Steel Brake Lines, a good pad such as the Pagid RST3, and a racing fluid such as Motul RT660, we have experienced zero brake fade on tracks up and down California such as Willow Springs, Thunderhill East or West, Sonoma Raceway, and Laguna Seca, which is one of the hardest tracks on brakes.

looks good, wonder how they compare to girodisc
Girodisc's are a great rotor and we've run them for several years on many of our vehicles before developing our own brake rotors. We've tested our 034Motorsport Rotors for a few years now and have put tens of thousands of miles on our R8 both on and off the track. 034Motorsport 2-Piece Rotors are a high-quality, motorsport and racing tested alternative to Girodisc, available at a slightly better price. When paired with our upgraded Stainless Steel Brake Lines, we have never experienced brake fade on track in our R8.

We do a weekly live stream AMA (Ask me anything) style on a few platforms where we've answered the question before as well. Check that out below:


One of our customers is currently running them on his Gen 1 R8 V10 which he's converted into a Racecar to race in the USTCC series.
