STM Front Drag Brake Kits for Evo VIII-IX allow you to ditch the weight of your big, heavy Brembos and rotors and clears room to run 15" wheels and slicks for drag racing applications and lose almost 40 pounds! We all know less rotating mass is the best way to free up power! The STM brake kits inlcude Wilwood calipers and your choice of the standard rotor or the lightweight scalloped rotor, custom STM aluminum mounting brackets, black anodized rotor hats, STM brake lines and all mounting hardware.
This brake set-up is specifically designed for Drag Racing. This is not intended for constant, on/off braking as in road-racing or autocross. Will clear most 15" wheels.
For suggestions on wheel and tire combos, give us a call and we will make sure you are outfitted with the right set-up to meet your racing goals. We are direct with many wheel and tire companies and can ship them mounted & balanced to your door! The picture above shows the kit with a 15x7 Rota Slipstream wheel.
The scalloped rotor is 2.7 pounds lighter than the standard rotor and is recommended for cars that see more miles on the drag strip than on the street. The scalloped rotor is not a street rotor.
